Imphal, Feb 15
The reception ceremony for the Chief Minister which was held at Hapta Kangjeibung for not tabling the contentious CAB at Rajya Sabha organised by BJP is an act of shamelessness of the Bharatya Janata Party.
This was stated in a press statement signed by Coordinator, Standing Committee of Maoist Communist Party Manipur Kyonghan Mangang. It further said that the people of Manipur and the women folks of Ima Keithel has been facing harsh atrocities from the government for protesting against the bill and added that BJP has never stand against the CAB.
He added that those attending the reception are BJP bhaks who had never taken part in the mass protest against CAB.
Kyonghan further added that the people of Manipur remembered what the Chief Minister, and his colleagues have said in functions regarding the Contentious citizenship Amendment Bill 2016 and also the things the BJP has done to subjugate the protest against the CAB.
He added that the bill was not tabled at Rajya Sabha even though BJP tried to table it twice was because of the people’s movement and the disagreement of the bill by several political parties without BJP and also because of the ruckus inside the Rajya Sabha Parliament by many opposition parties as the opposition has greater number in the upper house.
Kyonghan also added that the CM misinformed the general public claiming that the curfew was imposed because the people tried to dismantle the house and the properties of BJP MLA and the office of BJP. He added the fact was that the people were angered because of the imposition of curfew and tried to attack the said house and office on the day of the curfew itself not before imposing it.
