Imphal, April 7: While alleging Congress government for ruining the state, State General Secretary of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Manipur Pradesh has warned that the party would not spare “corrupt Congressmen” who have siphoned off money.
Addressing a gathering at the 36th foundation day of the party at Keibul Lamjao organized by BJP Thanga Mandal, the General Secretary said that people of the state have loath towards the 14-years of Congress misrule in Manipur. A strong antagonistic attitude against the present Ibobi-led Congress government has prevailed among the voters.

Tourism Ministry, Government of India had already sanctioned Rs 46 for Sendra and Rs 22 cr for Thanga and Karang Island for development of mega tourism projects three years ago. It is reported that Rs 12 cr and 7 cr released and deposited to the work agency for Sendra and Thang respectively.However, there was no sign of tangible work at the spot till date. This is the big question among the people of the areas and the state, whether it has been siphoned off or the where the money has gone. And, the Ministry of DoNER has also sanctioned Rs 2.8 cr approximately for deconstruction of Keibul Lamjao Water Supply scheme 3-4 years back and reportedly Rs 2 cr has already been withdrawn 2 (two) years back for providing drinking water to the people of Keibul Lamjao, but till date the people of Keibul Lamjao never get a drop of water. This is one of the unpardonable crimes against humanism, Asnikumar said.
