Guts to say wrong is what we expect from leaders


A single wrong in your thousand good works have the potential to ruin your good image and credential, a wise man once pointed out. And his words are so true that till today good works of many good leaders of our today’s society are still ruined by a single wrong he or she or their near and their one’s had committed. Human nature is different and often misjudge to the person who had pointed the wrong but often failed to notice that the person pointing the wrong is also the person who had been following him very closely. This definitely proves that the same persons also knows the good works he had done.
Leaders have different personalities from the common man, that is why they are chosen to lead the mass. They are being handed over the most tough  job and often blame for their failure to handle it. A real leader should be one who tolerate every criticisms to his work and accepted the criticism a way to correct himself. Responding by playing games of words by justifying towards the criticism is definitely not a good quality of a leader. Instead it is favourable that the very leader apologies to the kind of wrongs he has committed will make him a more respectable leader.
The by-election for Thongju and Thangmeiband Assembly constituencies is knocking at the door and campaign for all the candidates in both the assembly constituencies reached its peak. It is a fair game between the Congress party which rule the state and the BJP which is in power at the centre. And things that is different in this by-election is that this time the election is going to be between the congress and the BJP and not to the personalities of the candidates. It is being opined so in view of the political necessities. If the congress loss in this by-election it will definitely prove the decline of the party and in next election it is sure that the congress will definitely have no place at all. And if the BJP loss than the party which is trying to penetrate in the region will fail forever. It had tried during Hiyanglam constituency by-election but defeated.
Manipur at present is at its height of curiosity. The “frame work agreement”, the ILP issue, the demands for separate stated by some organisations based at Hill area viz-a-viz, are burning issues.

Both the BJP and the Congress are playing the electors over these issues in particular. Both the parties are right from their viewpoints when it comes to the protection of the territorial integrity of the state.
But to be precise we the laymen, the voters knows that there were something wrong committed by both the parties when tackling the sensitive issue of this state. People have witness the state being thrown to the frying pan twice - once during 2000s when the peace talk between the NSCN-IM and Government of India had extended without territorial limit and recently when the government in the state delayed and waited for a massive agitation with communal tone for introduction of ILP in the state.
Had the state government did not waited for a mass agitation that would cost the life of a student here in Imphal on July 8 this year the prevailing situation here in the  state could have been avoided. On the other hand had the then government of India under the BJP leadership think twice before extending the cease fire to the state of Manipur that history would have been different.
This write up suggest leaders of both congress and the BJP to apologise the public on the wrong that they had committed in case if they truly felt the love for their motherland called Manipur. Only then people in both the constituencies will vote without frustration as the integrity of the state is an emotional issue of all the people of the state.

M Suresh Sanathoi was also present at the location along with Subhash Chandra. In due course when there was a scuffle between K Jadumani and Subhash Chandra, K Brendon S/o K Jadumani pointed a Pistol towards Th Subhash Chandra and M Suresh alias Sanathoi.  M Suresh alias Sanathoi however overpowered K Brendon and Th Subhash Chandra informed this incident to 12 BIHAR. The statement further stated that on receipt of information about an individual with a weapon, personnel of 12 BIHAR took K Brendon to Nambol Police Station since he was unable to produce valid license for the pistol. Since the place of incident was in the jurisdiction of Imphal West Police station K Brendon was handed over to the Imphal West Police with one pistol, two magazines and eighteen live rounds
It said that, 12 BIHAR had no involvement in the case other than handing over of K Brendon to Police Station.
