Imphal, July 13: The Maoist Communist Party Manipur has alleged that a Congress legislator from Greater Imphal area and relative of the state’s chief minister is soliciting money from numerous individuals offering government jobs and appointment to key posts. A communiqué released by the militant group said it played its part during the last Assembly election to keep the ‘demonic’ Congress government from carrying on for another term. But the legislator in question who canvassed for support during the election on him being a scion of a Congress family is taking advantage of his close relationship with the chief minister to don the role of a broker for people seeking government employment and promotion, according to MCPM. Citing a case the group claimed that MLA has taken a huge amount in connection with the appointment of managing director of Manipur Police Housing Corporation. It insisted that a probe has established his involvement and substantial evidences have been collected. The Congress MLA must change his stand within 48 hours. Otherwise, there will no other option than public humiliation and deep scrutiny of those officials who have thrown their names in the race for post of managing director, MCPM warned in the statement. The present BJP government has taken up series of popular policies like Public Day, anti corruption cell, Hill Leaders’ Day etc. If the MLA forsakes the Congress party like many of former companions then there is possibility for discussion for a amicable settlement, it added.
