In a recent development, Rajya Sabha MP Leishemba Sanajaoba has been barred from addressing the ongoing Parliamentary session on the critical issues plaguing Manipur, as confirmed by a statement from the Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) on Monday.
The MPCC disclosed details of the dialogue between MP Leishemba Sanajaoba and a delegation led by MPCC vice-president Hareshwar Goshwami at the national capital on Monday.
The statement revealed that despite Sanajaoba’s repeated attempts having sought permission two to three times, he was consistently denied the opportunity to speak on the floor of the House.
The MPCC emphasised that Sanajaoba remains committed to bringing attention to the issues facing Manipur and will persist in seeking permission to address the matter in Parliament.
During the meeting, a memorandum was also submitted to the Rajya Sabha MP by the MPCC urging immediate parliamentary intervention for the resolution of pressing concerns in Manipur.
The key points raised in the memorandum include a call for swift action in the rehabilitation and restoration of displaced persons, accompanied by adequate security measures and prompt compensation. Furthermore, the MPCC stressed the urgency of implementing measures to restore peace and normalcy in Manipur.
Accompanying the MPCC delegation, Professor M Ramananda Singh from the Delhi University also played a prominent role in presenting the concerns of the people of Manipur to the national leadership.
In a related move, on Saturday, the MPCC team met Union Ministers RK Ranjan for External Affairs and Education in New Delhi.
