A day after veteran politician Okram Joy challenged the government for a debate on how the present government under Chief Minister N. Biren Singh become a ‘Citizen centric Government’, the President of the Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee ridicules the government for its exaggerated claims.
Talking to reporters at the sideline of the pension distribution function which is being distributed to the aged people as well as the widows held at his residence at Ningthoukhong in Bishnupur district, MPCC President Govindas Konthoujam said that the present government seems to have forgotten that in a democratic form of government, it is the people who elect the government. And simply the government is for the people , by the people and of the people. When it is for the people and of the people it ridicules to celebrate something like Citizen centric government.
“During the Congress regime we don’t waste money on celebrating such events”, Govindas said mocking the present government.
He further said that the Congress party runs the government on action and developmental works, unlike the BJP which runs on propaganda.
Govindas said that how could this government be citizen-centric when the common people are not allowed to express what they felt.
He also questions the media fraternity if they can report events freely without any fear.
“Are media today freely reporting events , or are the common people allowed to express their voice of dissent “, Govindas asked.
Our fundamental rights are being curtailed by the BJP Government both at the center and the state, Govindas alleged.
He said that a boy who had written a post against the government on a social networking site has been trace and arrested besides the fact that his father had just passed away.
Where is the freedom of speech? Govindas question and said that people need to open their eyes and see what the government is doing now.
