SPF should approach proper forum instead of misleading people: Manipur BJP president Tikendra Singh

Tikendra Singh said the submission of a memorandum to the governor against the BJP-led state government is out of place and time.

Manipur Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president S Tikendra Singh on Saturday said that the Secular Progressive Front (SPF) should approach a proper forum at an appropriate time and place instead of misleading the people by submitting a memorandum to the governor,

Tikendra was speaking to the media on the sidelines of a programme organised by the BJP-Khundrakpam mandal at Pangei Yangdong Multipurpose hall in Imphal on Saturday for observation of ‘Modi 2.0’.

He said by playing cheap politics, SPF submitted a memorandum to the governor of Manipur, seeking a special assembly session to adopt a resolution on a no-confidence motion against the BJP-led state government. Tikendra said the ruling party has no objections on submission of the memorandum but the rival political party should be aware that the BJP won the lone seat of Rajya Sabha election with four more votes.

Tikendra said the submission of a memorandum to the governor against the BJP-led state government is out of place and time. If necessary, the rival political party should come to an appropriate place, time and forum to show the public about the reality of the political scenario of Manipur instead of creating confusion towards the public, he added.

Meanwhile, as a part of the observation of Modi 2.0, he spoke about the achievements of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his contributions for the country.

President BJP-Khundrakpam Mandal, M Debaratan Meeitei; national vice president, BJP, Adhikarimayum Sharda Devi and president, BJP, Imphal East, L Kamni Singh attended the programme as dignitaries.

Meanwhile, an interaction programme was held at Tarung community hall, Imphal organised by BJP Nungba Mandal, Tamenglong district.

Speaking on the occasion, former autonomous district council (ADC) member, Tamenglong district, Danial Malangmei expressed his happiness that Rajya Sabha BJP candidate Leishemba Sanajaoba won the lone seat of Rajya Sabha election. He expressed his hope that during Sanajaoba’s tenure, the relationship between hills and the valley will be better than before.

President of Nungba mandal, Makuphun Gonmei said the mandal will work hard for the party and will follow the footsteps of Chief Minister N Biren and state BJP president S Tikendra Singh to make the party more powerful.
