BJP prepares epitaph for Congress in Manipur

The Bharatiya Janata Party has reportedly claimed that it has prepared the epitaph of Chief Minister Okram Ibobi-led Congress government and optimistic about winning the upcoming 2017 Manipur Legislative Assembly poll.
Speaking to Imphal Times at BJP State Office, its Secretary (Admin), Moirangthem Ashnikumar said that the party is gaining momentum in the state and the party is confident to ‘topple the Congress government in the state’. Time and again results of recently held elections in the state have sent out a clear message to the people of Manipur that the epitaph of the incumbent government is already prepared.
The ruling Congress party has failed to garner the support of the people. The performance of the Congress party in the recently held elections is pitiable. From its 254 seats, the Congress has reduced to 108 in all the 26 local bodies (18 Municipal and 8 Nagar Panchayats). From zero number of Councillor in Municipal and Panchayats, BJP secured 62 seats and managed to form 10 Councils, Ashnikumar observed.
He also said that the Congress has failed to retain their stronghold in hill areas. In a blow to the Congress party which won all the six ADC seats has managed to win 2 (two) ADCs, while BJP won 22 seats and secured second position in most of the ADC segments.
On top of it, the recent winning of two bye-elections in the political epicenter of Manipur – Thangmeiband and Thongju Assembly constituencies- is a sign of BJP’s gaining momentum in the state.
The BJP leader also said that with these statistics it is evident that the party will form government in the 2017. The people have lost faith on Congress, which is almost synonymous with corruption and its government in the state. People want development and a good government, which the present state government failed to render.
