“No invitation was given to UKLF for political talk during the tenure of Congress government,” he said.  However, with the coming of the BJP government, it has assured to fulfil the political demands of UKLF and therefore, UKLF supported the BJP party in the 12th Manipur Legislative Assembly election, he added.  

Besides, the Congress party has tried to defame UKLF for supporting the BJP. However, UKLF may change its stand if BJP fails to fulfil its assurance, he added.

UKLF commemorated the late UKLF members and honoured their families with the coming of 27th raising day, he added.
