“I am never involved in any manner with regards to anything related to Moreh By-pass road project. Such baseless accusation without proof amounts to character assassination, and I appeal to the organisation concerned to issue a public clarification to clear out my name,” said Benjamin.

“I took part in the negotiations relating to compensation for Tengnoupal areas of Imphal-Moreh Highway project as an affected person, as the highway expansion has affected my properties at Tengnoupal along the highway,” he added.
