JDU asks CM to get ready for stepping down
IMPHAL | Feb 9
Janata Dal United (JDU) state unit asked chief minister, N. Biren to get ready for stepping down from his chief minister’s post as the Centre has not given any assurance about inserting a clause to the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB), 2019 so far for safeguarding the indigenous people of the northeast.
Addressing a press meet today at the office of JDU state unit at New Checkon, its president, Hankhanpao Taithul said that CAB has given huge apprehensions to the people of the northeast as it is a bill made to eradicate the indigenous people.
Even the lawyer fraternities of the State who are experts in law have felt apprehension about the outcome of the bill so they have even taken up silent sit-in protest opposing the bill, he added.
“How come the chief minister stated only yesterday that he also felt apprehension about the bill, during a function? What happen to the assurance given by BJP leaders to the 11 political party team of the state during their visit to the national capital?” questioned the president.
Coming to the news report on February 7 which stated that CM’s driver and two associates allegedly kidnapped an Assamese man for ransom, Hankhanpao said JDU strongly condemned such act taken up by driver of a chief minister and police commando.
There might be many such cases which may be kept concealed by the victims do to fear of political power of the wrongdoers, he added.
The president said that such case should be handed over to CBI or NIA, as investigation by local police will be very light in such case.
It may be mentioned that Imphal East SP, K. Meghachandra has claimed in a statement that there is no person identified as Amuchou, who is supposedly the driver of CM, and the Assamese man is a serial offender who has been remanded to police custody till July 6 by the judicial magistrate first class, Jiribam.
