BJP Manipur spokesperson Benjamin Mate clarifies over allegation on misappropriation of compensation

If there is any hint of misappropriation of funds sanctioned to compensate people affected by the Moreh by-pass road, the government is appealed to institute an investigation to punish the guilty and ensure that the affected persons get their due, Benjamin said.


BJP Manipur spokesperson and former Lok Sabha BJP candidate of outer parliamentary constituency, HS Benjamin Mate has clarified over the allegation upon him by Kuki non-SoO militant group, Socialist Democratic Front of Kukiland for misappropriation of monetary compensation for people affected by Moreh by-pass road.

“I am never involved in any manner with regards to anything related to Moreh By-pass road project. Such baseless accusation without proof amounts to character assassination, and I appeal to the organisation concerned to issue a public clarification to clear out my name,” said Benjamin.

“I took part in the negotiations relating to compensation for Tengnoupal areas of Imphal-Moreh Highway project as an affected person, as the highway expansion has affected my properties at Tengnoupal along the highway,” he added.

If there is any hint of misappropriation of funds sanctioned to compensate people affected by the Moreh by-pass road, the government is appealed to institute an investigation to punish the guilty and ensure that the affected persons get their due, Benjamin said.
