Imphal, March 23
Self proclaimed Chief Minister of the De Jure Government of Manipur in Exile, Yambem Biren Singh along with the Members of the Manipur State break silence to the decision of the Leisemba Sanajaoba, which he term as the head of the council, the Maharaja of Manipur, over his decision to contest election for the lone Rajya Sabha seat as BJP candidate
“The Chief Minister with the Members of the Council humbly requested His Highness the Maharaja Leisemba Sanajaoba who is heading to enter as a member of the Rajya Sabha in the Republic Parliament of India to rethink your (Maharaja) official and monarchal position of the Office of the Maharaja of Manipur and the Throne in the Palace of Manipur for the sake of Manipuri nation and future of the State”, Yambem Biren said in a statement.
It further said that the Manipur State Constitution Act 1947 enacted by His Highness the Maharaja of Manipur as a sovereign authority on January 1, 1947, it meant that the sovereign is the sources of law. The State means Manipur State created by the Manipur State Constitution Act 1947. Manipur State Constitution Act 1947 is a legal constitution. Manipur State Constitution Act 1947 got in codification from the Crown paramountcy. It was recognised by India (Empire of India) and the United Kingdom by the bilateral agreement made between the Government Of India by the Crown and Manipur State Darbar on July 1, 1947. The constitutional monarchy system was introduced in the Monarchic State of Manipur since January 1, 1947. Since then, His Highness the Maharaja of Manipur is the Constitutional Head of the State. Manipur is a democratic country but not a Republic State like the Union of India.
The Office of the Maharaja of Manipur has been functioning from the Palace of Manipur. The Manipur Palace is a dynasty and monarchal institution. It is not an ordinary house or home. The democratic right of the people of Manipur derived from the sovereign authority the Maharaja of Manipur. The Chief Minister and Members of the Manipur State Council appointed by the Maharaja Leishemba Sanajaoba by exercising his (Maharaja) de jure sovereignty under rule 3 of the Manipur State Administration Rules 1947 which was promulgated by the Maharaja of Manipur as a sovereign authority on July 1, 1947. The Manipur State Council is an Executive Authority of the State of Manipur. The Manipur State Council decide all the administrative matters of the State on the term of resolutions in the Council Meeting and approval given by His Highness the Maharaja for passing and issuing the orders by the Chief Minister as, a Chief Executive of the State, the statement added
Since forming the Manipur state council on March 14, 2012, the de jure sovereignty of the State has been exercising by the Council in the State, therefore, the de jure Government which is in exile in London has taken up to prepare a legal petition with the legal assistance of the Barrister of Queen’s Council against the Union of India on which British law was violated by the Indian Government and the Governor-General of the Dominion of India C. Rajagopalachari while India (Dominion of India) was in His Majesty’s Dominion status. The legal petition duly made by the Barrister of Queen’s Council will be submitted to Her Majesty the Queen and further, the same petition will be referred to the Privy Council. It is a Monarchic Court. The Manipur State Council has the constitutional authority and power to refer such legal matter to Her Majesty by exercising their discretionary power under section 57 of the Manipur State Constitution Act 1947.
The Indian Government with the help of the de facto Manipur Government frequently and fraudulently attempted and tried to evict His Highness the Maharaja of Manipur from the Palace of Manipur but always failed.
In the year 2013, the de facto Government of Manipur had decided for taking over the Royal Palace of Manipur. In retaliation on such decision an official letter No. HH/POI/2/13/47 dated August 2, 2013 addressing to the President of the Republic of India was sent from the Office of the Maharaja of Manipur with a copy to the British High Commission in India, New Delhi in connection with the illegal eviction of the Maharaja from the Palace. Simultaneously, the people of Manipur raised a strong protest for the illegal eviction of Maharaja from the Palace of Manipur. Without further delay we got official responses from the Rashtrapati Bhawan, New Delhi vide Letter No.17/08/P(I)/2013 dated August 19, 2013. Ultimately the eviction of the Maharaja of Manipur from the Palace of Manipur was held.
