Congress manifesto unclear on Separate Administration: BJP

IT News
Imphal, April 6:

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has said that the Congress’ manifesto is unclear when it comes to Separate Administration and Indo-Naga peace talk.
During a press conference held by the BJP, Elangbam Johnson, the party’s spokesperson, addressed the recent release of the Congress manifesto, particularly highlighting its focus on national issues. However, Johnson emphasized “concerns raised by the Congress manifesto regarding the Manipur issue, alleging that the BJP government is responsible for the ongoing unrest in the state. The manifesto suggests that if Congress comes to power, they will seek to topple the BJP-led government in Manipur and facilitate a political and administrative settlement to address the violence.”
Johnson expressed skepticism regarding the proposed administrative settlement mentioned in the Congress manifesto, questioning whether it implies a separate administration for certain groups. He criticized Congress leaders, including Kapil Sibal and Bhakta Charandas, for attributing the violence to specific individuals and groups, further adding to the confusion surrounding the issue.
Moreover, Johnson highlighted “the absence of any mention of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in the Congress manifesto, despite the party’s stance against it.” He referenced previous statements made by Congress leaders in states like Telangana, where they opposed the implementation of NRC/NPR. Johnson also mentioned a recent statement by Home Minister Amit Shah, who asserted that there is no intention to establish a separate administration, directly addressing concerns raised by certain groups.
Regarding the Indo-Naga peace talks, Johnson clarified that “the agreement mentioned in the Congress manifesto is not a preliminary agreement but a framework agreement from 2013.” He criticized the Congress for not thoroughly understanding the agreement and creating confusion among the public.
Johnson appealed to the people not to trust the promises made by the Congress, which he perceives as motivated by short-term political gains. He criticized the party for its ambiguity on critical issues such as separate administration and the Indo-Naga peace talks.
