Look before you lift

The doctrine of running good governance lies to the integrity of the leader that leads the government. In democratic form of government govern my a hard written constitution, one can hardly sees the difference of ideology among any of the political parties which are on the theatre for running a government when it comes to Indian Nation. The left wing ideologist or the right wing ideologists have nothing to for the interest of the common people as long as it has to run the government under the constitution of the country. This is being said on the logic that future of the common people and those newly merged nation to the Indian nation were never a matter of concern for the framer of the world biggest constitution.
Absolute freedom is granted to the Indian constitution, but again it is this freedom that gives opportunity to major communities to rule over the poor. The concept of secularism define in the constitution has been easily misinterpreted or perhaps misused by the majority community. Any ban on anything which one community said it is against their religious practice is made free to exercise.
India is a vast country and the concept of Hindu has been misinterpreted as communal tools to hold power to run the government. The same is with the Muslim dominated area. The majority are protected by the constitution of India in the name of protecting the minority.
It is at this hour that bourgeoisie’s pseudo politicians have no worry for adopting religion of any kind for survival without even looking on whether they are worshipping the wrong god or barking at the wrong tree.
When Congress rules the nation, people living below the poverty line are the commodities for their personnel gain. Equality which has been guaranteed in the constitution appeared to have been left out for the poor and middle class people. Only the sons and daughter of the politicians were privileged to inherit the post. This cannot be denied as have been seen with the emergence of Mr. Rahul Gandhi as the only leader of the crumbling congress party.
In Manipur, 15 years of congress rule has left the people acquaintance with any alternative. It was never the ideology or the party itself that the people were soured but the governance which shattered the hopes of thousand people of the region.

When BJP replaced the congress at the centre in 2014, the state of Manipur successfully strike and hit the bull’s eye to replace the same here in 2017 state assembly election.
The new government now is in the power and the Chief Minister which now led the state is trying everything to win the heart of the people by not letting down any short of proposals. He had done it and is doing. The first three months was excellent. But rumours are taking around the city and critics have now started barking, as, not everything he and his government had promised is not turning into action.  The fight against corruption, at which his government started by establishing a special cell called ‘anti-corruption’ cell turn out to be a cell to look after middle and lower class employees.
Things only matter is that people are fed up of another political crisis .
Yesterday’s inauguration of Imphal Evening is a great job at which many people had been dreaning off but then while doing so lack of home works among many in the concern department had given room to many for straight criticism .
Don’t know the concept of opening an evening life in Imphal is consulted with the Law department or not, and if consulted those in the department need to be replaced by some more qualified individuals in the field. It is being said so as National Highways cannot be diverted or blocked by the government for any purpose. This was already experienced with the ruling of the Manipur High Court when the Highway in between the Chief Minister’s Bungalow and the Post Office was diverted by the then Okram Ibobi Singh led congress government.
The motive of Chief Minister N. Biren Singh, who led the government, is crystal clear. He will not compromise his integrity and essence of patriotism with anything. All he had been striving hard is for a change and developed Manipur. But then doing good for the state and people need more consultation as he is now for all the people of the state and not for a mere group of people  whom he think will keep his position undisturbed.
Forget about the National Highway rules, but please think about those women vendors at Khwairamband Keithel who faced difficulties in returning to their home. And forcing them to return before 7 would be injustice.
