Imphal: The Manipur Government charged the Opposition of disrupting State Legislative Assembly session held Tuesday. In a press conference conducted at the auditorium of DIPR, a ministerial team led by Works Minister, Govindas Konthoujam labelled the charges against the Opposition.

During a press briefing, Law and Education Minister Basantakumar said that due to the disturbances of the Opposition during the session, important and missing issues of the state could not be discussed in the Assembly. Basantakumar Singh informed that before the Speaker of the House could say anything, all the Opposition members stood up and created chaos with noise.

He said that due to the noise the Speaker had no choice but to adjourn the House so that they could go back, rethink and come back and take up the matter in a civilised way. However, once the House resumed after half an hour, the congress MLAs were not allowed to discuss the important issues of the day, he added.   

Minister Basantakumar also maintained that even Opposition in the Parliament also disrupted the sitting during the recent session. Opposition in the Parliament wanted to bring President’s Rule in the state. They also want to divide Manipur, he added.  

IPR, Minister Dr. Sapam Ranjan Singh, MLAs Kh. Joykishan, Kh. Ibomcha and Th. Shanti Singh was also present during the press briefing.

Earlier, during a press briefing at Congress Bhavan, CLP leader and former chief minister Okram Ibobi Singh charged the BJP-led state government of murdering the democracy. 

Despite the claims that India is a mother of democracy sometimes back by the Indian Prime Minister Narenddra Modi, the same government in the state was suppressing the voice of people and opposition. This would be black day in the history of Manipur, he alleged.

Not just the State Assembly session conducted on time, since the BJP government came to power in 2017, not a single election of local bodies including ADC has been held. This shows how the double-engine governments have subdued the voice of people. 

The veteran Congress leader recalled that all the problems including the 2001 incident, properly known as “The Great June Uprising” and now the ethnic clash between the Meiteis and Kukis took place during the BJP government. 

Regarding the disruption of the Special Session, Okram Ibobi Singh said the present government forfeited the rights of members by not allowing the discussion which was already approved by the Business Advisory Committee.
