The MLA allegedly threaten him while talking from the other end to jail him for speaking against him.

I was told to make an apology through social networking site Facebook however, the matter was flatly rejected as they committed no wrong, the TKTL said. After detaining him at the police station for around sme hours they were released at around 6 pm of the day.

The TKTL said that such action by the local MLA and the police is a clear instance of violation of human rights and dignity by the state security forces. Moreover, the volunteers of TKTL are also presently engaged in a hectic schedule for conducting the Mass Awareness Campaign on Covid-19 Pandemic in the whole Thongju Assembly Constituency.
