Imphal, Feb 11: Former Minister of Manipur Government, presently serving as the State Secretary of the CPI, Manipur and National Executive Member, Dr. M. Nara Singh had lambasted Prime Minister Narendra Modi asking him to clarify on what kind of government is the BJP is heading in Manipur.
“I want to ask Prime Minister Narendra Modi on whether the government lead by the BJP in the state of Manipur is a legal government or illegal government”, Dr. M. Nara the CPI leader put this while speaking during election campaign at Jail Ground, Agartala in Tripura while campaigning for CPM candidate Amal Chakraborty who is contesting the upcoming Tripura Assembly Election scheduled to hold on February 18.
While asking the magic played in the formation of the government in the state with just 21 BJP MLA whose number is less than the Congress Party which won in 28 seats, Dr. M. Nara said that the existing government in the state of Manipur is a treacherous government which was forcibly formed by ignoring the constitutional provision of the constitution of India.
“Soon after the declaration of the election result, one Congress MLA supported the BJP and become a minister. All together 8 Congress MLAs had joined BJP but at state Assembly house these congress MLAs still sit at the congress lobby which is the main opposition party”, Nara said.
As per the Anti-defection Law (10th Schedule of the Indian constitution) the MLAs defected from the Congress party and joined the ruling party should be disqualified.
(Regarding the Parliamentary Secretary, Chief Minister N. Biren Singh had stated in the floor of the State Assembly during the ongoing session that the Parliamentary secretaries appointed had been revoke as per the ruling of the Supreme Court and recent development.)
Digging to the assurance about implementation of 7th Pay scale to the government employee of Tripura, Nara said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is lying to the people of Tripura. Government Employees’ bodies are agitating demanding implementation of 7th Pay in the state as they are not getting till today even though it has been BJP vision documents released before the election.
“2 days back the Finance Minister of Manipur Y. Joykumar, who is also the Deputy Chief Minister of Manipur while replying to a question by Congress MLA K. Ranjit had stated that the state government has not yet planned about implementation of 7th pay or its equivalent pay to its employees”, Nara said during the campaign.
M. Nara, the CPI leader even call the Prime Minister a “cheater” as what he had said to the people of Tripura in terms of Manipur where the government is led by the BJP is not true at all.
