Imphal, Feb 15,
Lok Sabha MPs of both Inner and Outer Manipur Parliamentary constituencies’ return back today afternoon with smile on their face on the Union government failure to present the Citizenship Amendment Bill at Rajya Sabha which cool down the turmoil in the entire states of North Eastern states.
Soon after landing at Imphal Airport MP Dr, Meinya while talking to reporter said that the Lok Sabha session conclude today and both MP Thangso baite and himself return to consult and review the discussion at both the houses of Parliament.
Meinya said as everyone knows that the CAB 2016 could not be placed at the Rajya Sabha which was adjourned on February 13. As the Bill could not be tabled it can be considered as dead or say lapse, however as the government still will survive till June 3, he expressed apprehension on the kind of action that might be taken up by the BJP government to make sure that the Bill is passed in the form of ordinance. He said when there is no session the government can use the ordinance by passing it in cabinet.
Dr. Meinya said as the state of Manipur have only 2 MPs they get little time to express about the issues that has been haunting the state but he tried everything to draw the attention of the house regarding the issues happening in the state. He even said that he had brought up the demand of the people to restore the pre merger status.
Dr. Meinya said that had there not been a mass movement against the passing of the CA Bill in the entire states of North East including Manipur there is a possibility that they passed the Bill. Congress strong opposition to the Bill has also been highlighted to the Media.
