Continuous attack on MPP leaders might be strategy to dissolve party from Manipur: MPP
“It is suspected that there is a strategy being undertaken to dissolve regional parties from Manipur. Haobijam Gitajen Meitei was attacked by unknown miscreants with that motive, and the culprits involved behind the scene must clarify immediately.”
President of Manipur Peoples’ Party (MPP), Oinam Jugindro Meitei stated during its sit-in-protest staged today in front of party’s head office located behind Polo ground, Imphal.
It may be mentioned that unknown miscreants opened fire into the residence of general secretary, MPP (administration), Haobijam Gitajen Meitei located at Ghari Awang Leikai on Tuesday evening at about 5:45 pm but no one was injured during the incident. Regarding the incident, Lamphel police has registered a case on the same day and had recovered 3 empty cases of 9mm pistol from the area.
Speaking to media personnel, Jugindra said the party condemned the act at the strongest term and he claimed that the act could be taken as a threat to dissolve the party from the soil of Manipur. If there are misunderstandings personally or at party level, the problems could be solved through political dialogue, he added.
Many leaders have become victims from unknown miscreants where some were killed in the past many years. Since then, central government or state has been failing to solve or bring out the culprits involved during these incidents, said Jugindro.
The recent act of carrying out threats has not happened the first time and many leaders had faced similar threats before, he said. He appealed the government to bring out the culprits involved in the incident happened at the residence of Gitajen and demanded that the culprits must claim for the act immediately.
He appealed to give equal view to all the political party as the party is also one of the oldest regional parties which were established with the aim to bring unity among various ethnic community groups of Manipur.
Decrying the act, Ghari Apunba Meira Paibi Lup staged a sit-in-protest at Ghari Awang Leikai along the western side of Tiddim Road today.
Speaking to media persons, one of the meira paibi, Swarnalata said meira paibi condemned the incident which happened last Tuesday. She further said that in the area, many famous schools have been established and many students from various ethnic communities have been settling at rents in order to get convenience for their studies. It could result in unwanted happenings if one of the students were injured during the incident, she added.
Present government is famous throughout the entire country for solving difficult cases and to bring out the truth in front of public. There is big hope from the people of the area towards government that the culprits will be booked immediately, she added.
