Police to take legal action against MP candidate Moirangthem Totomshana Nongshaba

Imphal, April 3:

Police is likely to take legal action against Inner Manipur Parliamentary candidate Moirangthem Totomshana Nongshaba after the District Election Officer (DEO) had written to take action against him for violation of Model Code of Conduct.
The DEO Imphal East Khumanthem Diana had written to SP Imphal East to take legal action against Inner Parliamentary Constituency Candidate Moirangthem Totomshana Nongshaba under the provisions of Sections 500, 503, and 505 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860, read with Section 125 of the Representation of People Act, 1951, for causing threat intimidation.
It may be mentioned that in a live telecast show on April 2, 2024, by the OTT platform SK TV, Moirangthem Totomshana Nongshaba made a derogatory statement against the Chief Minister of Manipur, by violating the provisions of the Model Code of Conduct. He even threatened the CM with physical harm by telling him that he would kill him whenever he got the chance, which amounts to an attack on the personal life of a person or a statement that is malicious or offends decency and morality.
DEO said it is needless to say that the Election Commission of India, from time to time, has been issuing instructions and advisories to maintain high standards while carrying out the election campaign. However, such highly inflammatory and intimidating speech made by a contesting candidate has the effect of promoting feelings of enmity, hatred, and ill-will and creating disharmony between and among the different political functionaries, which may ultimately vitiate the various initiatives and efforts being put in by the Election Commission of India in order to conduct a peaceful election.
The statement made by Moirangthem Tomtomsana went viral on social media platforms.
