Chairperson of Kumbi Municipal Council (KMC), Moirangthem Bineshwar Singh has appealed local MLA of Kumbi Assembly Constituency, Sanasam Bira Singh to stop his bid to overthrow Council in order to gain some monetary benefit.
The local MLA along with some councillors convened a Special meeting at the office of Sub-Divisional Officer, Moirang on Sept 11, 2015 to move no confidence motion against the Chairperson of KMC. Following the meeting some of his handpicked Councillors filed a no confidence motion against the sitting Chairperson on May 29, 2015, said Bineshwar while addressing pressmen at Manipur Press Club here today.
However, the no confidence motion was squashed by High Court of Manipur for not following procedures provided in Section 31 (2a) of Manipur Municipalities (3rd Amendment) Act 2015.
Stating that he is still working as Chairperson of the Municipal Council, Bineshwar said that there were many instances of MLA being involved in effort to appoint his people as Chairperson of KMC and writing DO letter to release funds in the name of his handpick person.
