Imphal, July 10:

Chairman of the Legal Cell of the MPCC and also the spokesperson of the party Sanoujam Shyamcharan Singh today said that recent accusations made by a BJP Minister concerning Rahul Gandhi’s visit to Manipur showed lack of proper education in understanding what Rahul Gandhi had stated and why he visited Manipur.
Speaking to the press at Congress Bhavan, Sanoujam Shyamcharan Singh popularly known as Sanou said that Rahul Gandhi’s visit was of a “brotherly nature” and not politically motivated.
The BJP minister had accused Rahul Gandhi of provoking the people and inflaming conflict during his visit. In response, Sanoujam Shyamcharan Singh clarified that “Rahul Gandhi’s intention was to show solidarity with the displaced and suffering people in Jiribam, Churachandpur, and Moirang. Rahul Gandhi himself had stated that he came with a message of brotherhood.”
Sanoujam Shyamcharan Singh has asserted that the Congress has never sought to fuel the conflict in Manipur. He also refuted the BJP’s claims that the Congress supports granting separate administration. Sanoujam Shyamcharan Singh pointed to the Congress manifesto, Nyay Parta, stating that it contains no such endorsement. He criticized “the BJP minister, suggesting that his lack of education led to a misinterpretation of the manifesto, which actually blames the BJP for the deteriorating situation in Manipur. The Congress manifesto advocates for the removal of the current state government and the establishment of a reconciliation commission to achieve a political and administrative settlement satisfactory to all communities in the state.”
Addressing another claim by the BJP minister Sanoujam Shyamcharan Singh mentioned that the Indigenous Tribal Leaders’ Forum (ITLF) had submitted a memorandum to Rahul Gandhi. According to Singh, the memorandum indicates that the ITLF expects a political settlement in line with the Congress manifesto, should the Congress come to power. Singh reiterated that the Congress aims for reconciliation that is agreeable to all communities in Manipur.
Sanoujam Shyamcharan Singh also noted that the Suspension of Operations (SoO) agreement, signed during the Congress’s tenure to stop violence, included seven organizations. However, under the BJP’s administration, the number of organizations under the SoO has drastically increased to 28 or 29.
Furthermore, Sanoujam Shyamcharan Singh countered the BJP minister’s accusation that many people died during the Congress’s time by highlighting that “under the BJP, 200 people have died and 60,000 people have been displaced.”
