Veteran politician Okram Joy on Tuesday questioned whether the convening of an assembly session would be able to solve the issues in Manipur though it might patch up the “constitutional crisis” faced by the present state government.
The veteran politician was speaking to the media at his Kakwa, Imphal West residence.
He stated that a regular assembly session could not be convened on August 21 though assembly sitting should be at least 50 days in a year as per rules.

Considering the prevailing scenario, the present state government might not be able to meet the minimum number of days of assembly sitting; therefore, the state has a constitutional crisis, he claimed. The Governor of Manipur and cabinet ministers should bear the responsibility for this, he added.
If the state fails to convene an emergency session, then there would be a temporary ‘Enmity Suspension’ in the state, he mentioned.
Any MLA will be disqualified automatically if he or she fails to attend the upcoming session which is scheduled on August 29, he added.
