Lilong United Political Forum (LUPF) today slams Lilong Political Unified Link (LIPUL) for its failure to comply with their announcement during the recently concluded Highway Bandh.
LIPUL had called Thoubal district bandh from last Friday protesting against the failure of road widening from Lilong to Waithou and concluded on the 25th Jan after getting a resolution between the government and the forum.
During a press conference held today at Manipur Press Club, Md. Farid Khan, Convenor, LUPF said that the bandh claimed one life of a young school boy. During the bandh LIPUL had put a restriction on religious services including marriages and other emergency services.
He also expressed over the manner in which the bandh had been concluded.
While Dr. Abdul Salam, Advisor, LUPF said that Md. Abdul Nasir, Agriculture Minister had already put a proposal to the Chief Minister to broaden the road of Lilong while LIPUL, might be holding a grudge against the Minister, taking political advantage and called the bandh.
LIPUL must take responsibilities of the death and other casualties caused to the people of Lilong during the bandh. LIPUL must unveil a written document of the resolution taken between the MLA, JAC and LIPUL during the closed meeting held on Jan 25 and LIPUL has been boycotted by LUPF, added Abdul Salam.
