IT News

Imphal, Dec 22,

NSA detainee, Kishorechandra Wangkhem, told media persons today that the statement of the Jail SP published at various media houses today was half cooked and sugar coated story.

The Manipuri Journalist, who was slapped NSA for his criticism to the present Government led by the BJP, spoke to the media persons today morning while he was on his way to the JNIMS Hospital to attend medical checkup.

Yesterday, the Manipur Central Jail SP, S, Touthang, had clarified that Kishorechandra’s advocate claim saying that the Jail authority had not denied him meeting with his client however, he left while they were yet to complete the formalities.

The SP also stated that all sectors inside the prison are provided Local News papers (1) Sangai Express (Manipuri), (2) Poknapham (3) Hueiyen Lanpao and National paper (4) Telegraph.

He however said that Pen and paper are provided as per request of the inmates only. This is because pen has been used as weapon in the past by inmates and provocative material written and sent out of the jail premises in the past by prisoners. Those who request for pen and writing materials are provided after proper confirmation. There is a library inside the Jail with a good numbers of books and this facility is open to all inmates. Many inmates who are interested are availing of this facility. NSA has its own diet scale and menu as prescribed by the Government. The above facts clearly show that all the allegations in the press release of Advocate Shreeji Bhavsar are false and baseless. All these matters can be confirmed from the Prison Authorities”, the SP added”

Bullshiting the SP clarification, Kishorechandra while on his way to OPD JNIMS stated that the SP has been telling to media was a half cooked sugar coated story.

“If you want to see the realities come and stay with me at the Jail just for one day and you will know the truth”, Kishorechandra told media while walking from another room to another room during medical checkup. The police team tried to take him away from media but he keep on talking what he wanted to the media.

He said that even the Jail authority are collecting money from the Jail inmate for providing water how could one believe that the jail authority have provided library.

“The Jail SP story is half cooked sugar coated story”, Kishorechandra said.

Kishorechandra said that his arrest was arbitrary and the charges leveled against him were baseless as there is nothing such that my words have intention to disintegrate the nation.

Kishorechandra further keeps his words saying that his detention is baseless and might have happened only at the time of Hitler.

“I strongly denounced my detention under NSA, this is autocracy, dictatorial rule, they cannot simply arrest me for raising voice against them, Kishorechandra said and appealed the people to raise their voice against the government.

Regarding the All Manipur Working Journalist Union Manipur (AMWJU) stand to his arrest, Kishorechandra said that AMWJU is sold out. The IJU has came down heavily to AMWJU, that proves AMWJU is doing what the government wants.
