Kuki People’s Alliance (KPA) has alleged disruption of election campaign by workers of BJP workers at Singhat Assembly constituency in Churchandpur district.
“KPA workers at Muallum village, Singhat Sub-division of CCPur District were intimidated on the intervening night of 15th February 2020, and again, on the 16th February, they attempted to disrupt the peaceful Public Meeting program of the Kuki People’s Alliance (KPA) at Singngat Public Ground situated under the nose of the Assam Rifles Post”, the KPA workers told media persons. The KPA alleged that before the public meeting began, volunteers of the BJP candidate led by some armed cadres who are under SoO with the government, opened fire few rounds in the air at Singngat (Singhat) village to scare away the potential attendants of the KPA public meeting coming from Singngat and the surrounding villages.
As reported by attendants of KPA meeting from the ground, around 11 a.m, two to three vehicles (Scorpio) carrying volunteers of the BJP candidate rushed to Singngat Public Ground and attempted to burn down the hall and banner of KPA meeting using kerosene, petrol and sacks. However, the workers of KPA confronted and prevented them from doing so. Then the BJP volunteers left the scene. On their way about 100 meters from Singngat Police Station, they opened fire at the air near the gate of Mr. Lampau, the president of the United Zou Organisation-Singngat Block. Later, four empty-cases and one live bullet were found at the scene.
In another incident, Mr. Paumuanthang s/o (L) Letkhothang of Singngat HQ Veng lodged complaint at the Singngat Police Station. As narrated by him, around 10:30 PM of 16th February 2022, some armed cadres of ZRA from the designated camp near Teikot village, came to him with three vehicles (2 Bolero, 1 pick-up van) at his residence. One of the armed cadre pointed a pistol at his head and warned him of dire consequence if he continue to support the KPA candidate and then fired his gun at the air.
As they left the house, the same group opened three rounds of fire within the house’s yard. Paumuanthang wondered how the ZRA cadres who are under the Suspension of Operation (SOO) with the government, can loiter around with full arms and terrorize the innocent public with impunity. He further wondered how the Assam Rifles stationed at Singhat can merely remain a mere spectator while the public shiver in fear. He urged the concerned authority to book Mr Nathan, the ZRA cadre and his cohorts as soon as possible as per the Law of the land. Complainant Paumuanthang also submitted a 9mm cartridge to the police station while making his complaint.
