Biren claims BJP has done more for the people of the state in two years than Congress in 15 years
Chief minister of Manipur, N. Biren has asked the people of Manipur to discuss and decide the difference in the development activities and the social changes brought about by the BJP-led government in its two years with those of the activities initiated by the Congress party during its 15 years of governance of the nation.
He stated this at a political conference held today at BASU ground, Khangabok, organised by BJP Khangabok Mandal. N. Biren in his address as chief guest of the occasion, alleged that during the 15-year of Congress governance, all the party did for the people was recruiting security forces personnel who had to sell off their properties including paddy fields to secure the posts.
He also asserted the when the BJP –led government assumed power in the State, Manipur was enduring a number of crisis and various issues including the case of where eight bodies were not cremated for more than 600 days in Churachandpur district; economic blockades on national highways which have surpassed more than two to three months and the subsequent cases where people used to stay overnight at oil-pumps just to get hold of just one litre of petrol.
“During this period of crisis, the BJP government took charge of the government,” N. Biren continued while adding that the ‘Go to Hills’ movement was immediately initiated by the government as an ‘important mission’, and later the Churachandpur issue along with the matter of economic blockade was resolved through meetings.
The “Go to Hills” mission has resulted in the fruits of communal harmony, the CM continued while adding that special treatments were meted out to the government officials by the villagers in recognition of the sincere efforts of the government to bridge the hill-valley divide. “Later, the government commenced initiatives to improvise the socio-economic conditions of the economically backward sections of the society such as the CMHT and Ayushman Bharat schemes amongst others which was led to the further developments such as electrification o remote villages, free supply of LPG cylinders, opportunities for free education for economically backward sections of the society and employment opportunities provided through Start-up programmes etc.,” he said.
The CM further claimed that the developmental changes were brought about in just two years of the BJP-led government while also adding that it will continue its developmental works in the interest of the welfare of the public. “The Congress party with its biased policies have been detrimental to the development of the state with the implementation of draconian acts such as AFSPA along with bribery in recruiting security personnel,” the CM continued while also blaming the Congress party for the ILP issue and the “late” statehood of Manipur. The Congress party has planted a “Poison Plant” with its policies which has resulted in the hardships faced by the people of the State, he added.
N. Biren further questioned why the Congress is blaming the BJP of playing communal politics while claiming that it is the only party practising the ideals of secularism. “Millions of people possessing Ayushman Bharat cards irrespective of caste, creed and religions is an indication of the secular politics followed by the party,” he said.
While stating that the ideology of the BJP is to bring an egalitarian society, N. Biren also claimed that the BJP along with its allied parties is sure to win the upcoming parliamentary (Lok Sabha) elections.
The event also witnessed the attendance of Education minister, Th. Radheshyam; Wangjing -Tentha MLA, Dr. S. Ranjan and former BJP candidate from Khangabok assembly constituency, Th. Jadumani along with various other leaders of the party as members of the dais.
