Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh appealed to every licensed gun holder to deposit their guns in the nearest police stations to prevent any unwanted incident during the election campaigns.
The CM made the appeal during the felicitation of former MLA of Patsoi assembly constituency Sapam Kunjakeshor alias Keba and intending candidate from Wangkhem assembly constituency Y Nabachandra in joining BJP on Sunday. The programme was held at Thambal Shanglen.
Addressing the function, Biren said that with the approaching of election, violence is increasing each day. To prevent such instances, the Home department will issue an order for submission of licensed guns soon. People should extend their cooperation to conduct the upcoming election in a peaceful manner, he added while appealing to deposit their license guns in nearby police stations.
Biren said that to choose a candidate by the conscience of voters without any influence from anybody is the beauty of democracy. However, some intending candidates have led to pick up violent activities just to get votes forcefully, which is unfortunate. Those people should admit that there is no place for goondaism in democracy.
He further said that ‘Go to Hills 2.0’ has covered most of the districts and the state government will be launching Go to village 3.0 on November 1.
BJP strongly believed in the ideology of nation first and the party has been continuously working for welfare of nation and state, he added.
He also sought support from people of the state to let BJP win the election and bring more development in the years to come.
The programme was also attended by BJP Manipur Pradesh president, A Sharda and many other senior BJP workers of the state.
