Imphal, May 16: President of Manipur People’s Party Nongmeikapam Sovakiran has been ousted from his post and his party membership terminated today on charges of misuse of funds and administrative power.
According to reliable sources, Sovakiran also tried to secretly postpone the central committee meeting of the party scheduled to be held today. The decision to oust him was passed unanimously by the central committee.
Earlier, the members of the central committee of the oldest regional party of Manipur were greeted with a shock when they arrived at the office to attend the meeting as they found a notice pasted at the gate notifying the cancellation of the meeting.
However, disregarding the president’s notice, the committee members went ahead with the meeting where his reprehensible actions were discussed. Thereafter, Sovakiran was dragged from his office and forced to participate in the meeting. The committee charged him of misusing Rs 50 lakhs meant to be utilized during the state Assembly elections. He was further accused of not casting his own vote.
The central committee resolved against allocation of the funds misused during the elections.
