A press statement released today by R.K. Shivachandra Singh, State Spokesperson of state BJP  said that President of BJP Manipur Pradesh had a telephonic conversation with the Central leadership this morning and the Centre reassured the love and care of the North eastern India once again. It also said that distinguished rank and file of BJP HQ in Delhi, President BJP Manipur pressing hard to remove the word from the word from the vision document and expressed dissatisfactory remark for using such controversial term while there are many words found in the dictionary to be used. He also further questioned the integrity of the controversial statement.
BJP Head Quarter had sincerely clarified that it has no any bad intention towards the people of North States. There is no difference between NE people and Delhi citizens. The word ‘immigrants’ was mistakably used and is being removed. This statement was made to public through the National Spokesperson MJ Akber of BJP. He further said that the brothers and sisters of Manipur are of pride of Delhi. Kiren Rijiju, Union Minister of State Home Affairs also clarified that the word ‘immigrant’ was wrongly typed and he regretted the error that sparked-off a National Controversy and hurting the sentiments of the fellow North Easterners.
BJP Manipur strongly stands to uphold the spirit of Manipur and it would continue to serve the purpose in the coming days too. The word had now removed and people are appealed to be on guard from other political monger and mu-sluggers of the other political front who burnt mid night oil to mint-out cheap political gimmick from such human error for which BJP had already expressed its error and regret.
Demanding to remove the controversial word, CPI State Council has organised a sit-in-protest.
People of northeast are also the citizen of this country. National leaders of CPI will highlight the issue in the upcoming parliament session scheduled to hold from February 20, N Mangi Singh, National Council Member of CPI.
Assam erupted in protests on Wednesday with various organisations demanding an unconditional apology from the Bharatiya Janata Party for having referred to the people of Northeast as “immigrants” and “migrants” in its Vision Document ahead of the Delhi Assembly elections. Asom Gana Parishad workers and supporters took out protest rallies across the State and burnt effigies of PM Narendra Modi, flaying the BJP for referring to the people of Northeast as “immigrants.”
