Imphal, Feb 10:

Two leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) were reportedly beaten up at gunpoint by a group of persons while they were on their way at Sanakeithel under Lamphel Police Station. Spokesperson of the BJYM Mayanglambam Sureshkumar and secretary general Alex Ningombam were reportedly stopped by some youths near Sanakeithel area and they were reportedly beaten at gunpoint by the miscreants. The reason for the assault is yet to be confirmed.
Both are undergoing treatment at Raj Medicity and the condition of Suresh is reported critical even though Alex Ningombam sustained a minor injury. Both were returning in a car after attending a program, a BJYM source said.
A police case has been filed in connection with the attack.
Chief Minister N. Biren Singh expressed strong condemnation of the attack and said that police are searching for the culprits in his Facebook post.
Co-incidentally the incident happened a day after a large number of volunteers of the BJYM tried to attack Congress Youth leader Ningthoujam Popilal at IMPACT TV office after a heated argument occurred between BJYM Spokesperson Suresh and Popilal in a discussion programme “Manung Hutna”. However timely intervention of the Manipur Police team put the situation under control and the Congress Youth leader Popilal was safely dropped to his residence.
The next day Popilal was appointed as the President of the MPCC Youth Committee. Soon after his appointment as Youth President Popilal along with his team compliant the matter to the city police and filed an FIR naming some of the BJYM members who tried to attack on February 9 evening after the discussion programme at IMPACT TV.
The discussion where the two leaders were confronted with hard words went viral on social media and Popilal’s popularity goes far above BJYM spokesperson Sureshkumar.
BJYM President Barish Sharma has condemned the attack and indirectly point fingers at the Congress supporters saying that violence is not the solution for differences of ideas during discussion hours.
