The one time speaker of the Manipur Legislative Assembly Th. Lokeshwar further said that whatever the opposition put up for the welfare of the public has been considered as words from an enemy.

“There is no room for criticism to this government”, said Lokeshwar citing example on how a journalist has been detain under National Security Act .
This government led by Chief Minister N. Biren Singh seems to prepare for action to anyone who speaks against them, Lokeshwar added.
