State BJP today slammed the Okram Ibobi led congress government in the state saying that there is no governance in the hill district of the state. He said the government seems to be working under the whims of the NSCN-IM.
Addressing reporters today at the Manipur Pradesh BJP head office, Nityapat Chuthek, Imphal, State President BJP, Th. Chaoba said that the Chief Minister along with Deputy CM and MLAs were invited for a program on 13th Dec, which was supposed to be conducted by Paomei Naga Baptist Association at Somai village of Ukhrul. But the delegates did not attend the program over a threat warned by NSCN (IM). Chaoba said that the incident clearly shows that the state is ruled under the wings of underground groups of Manipur. He added that the state is totally damaged by corruption and underground groups. The state president, BJP, further spoke about a report of the controller and auditor general of India for the year ended 31st March, 2010. According to the report the Manipur Development Society (MDS) had revealed that the state had purchased building materials worth Rs. 274.49 Lakhs for the construction of two district sports complexes at Kodompokpi and Kakching from two suppliers i.e., M/s. S.K. Enterprises, Guwahati and M/s. Northeast Marketing Company, Dimapur during Jan, 2009 and May 2009. As per delivery challans, the building materials were transported by 33 trucks as of May 2009. The report further stated that the invoice copies and delivery challans of the Guwahati and Dimapur firms appear to be in the same handwriting, out of the 33 trucks, one turned out to be a small vehicle (TATA Model: 407 truck) of the police department, three had not been registered, one was an auto rickshaw, one a two wheeler (Kinetic Zoom Bajaj) and for one the registration number had been changed to another number with effect from March 2008 and the address of the two suppliers could not be traced. The report clearly showed that the state government is highly corrupted, added Chaoba.
