The protestors also alleged the MLA of mishandling other local people who were working to prevent the breached of Imphal River Bank at Khurai Puthiba area.
MLA Dr. N Bijoy however clarified through a local TV that he had not assaulted or mishandle any person at the area. Reacting to the clarification L Itocha himself today stated that the MLA assaulted him in the presence of many local people.

Instead of listening the MLA assaulted him asking him how he could do the work when he is the local MLA.
Meira Paibi staging protest strongly denounced the high handedness of the MLA. Kananbala Devi, a local Meira Paibi said that they will continue protest unless the MLA come and tender apology to them and the person he had assaulted.
