Imphal, July 15:

Following the affidavit filed by former Additional SP (NAB) Th. Brinda, in connection with the alleged drug lord Lukhosei Zou, the Manipur Pradesh Congress Party today demanded the resignation of Chief Minister N. Biren Singh on moral ground.

“This is a serious case, and if the government is transparent than they should convene a cabinet meeting immediately and hand over the case to an independent body like the CBI”, Congress Party Legislature Wing leader Okram Ibobi Singh told media person at Congress Bhavan today.

The former Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh along with the President of the MPCC M. Okendro Singh has also demanded the resignation of Chief Minister N. Biren Singh on moral ground.

“This government is claiming to be transparent and even stated that no one will be spared if found guilty, but how”, Okram Ibobi Singh questioned saying that the Chief Minister, who is also in charge of Home department had utilized the department as per the affidavit and how could anybody believe that justice will be delivered when handed over the case to the State Police.

He further said that such a case should be handed over to a body like the CBI, for that, an immediate cabinet meeting should be convened and later the resolution adopted should be sent to the Prime Minister Office and get approval for the investigation.

The leader of the Congress Legislature Wing Okram Ibobi Singh also mocked Chief Minister N. Biren Singh for serving lip service only and for failure to show action to whatever he had spoken in public.

MPCC president M. Okendro while speaking on the occasion said that during the Congress tenure when Okram Ibobi Singh was the Chief Minister of Manipur the infamous Pallel drug haule case and the Airport Drug Haul cases have been handed over to the CBI without making much delay.
