THOUBAL| Apr 9
“As long as the BJP remains in governance at both the Centre and State, the party will be able to protect and preserve the identities and rights of Indigenous people as the BJP has always stood for indigenous communities of the Country.”
CM, N Biren stated this at a political conference organised by Lok Janshakti Party (LJP), Wangkhem assembly constituency and Election Campaign Committee, BJP in connection with the election campaign for BJP candidate (Inner Manipur Constituency Dr. RK Ranjan. The event was held at the ground of Charangpat High School today.
N. Biren also asserted that the BJP-led NDA government in the centre is committed to preserving the rights and identities of the various communities residing in the country and protecting and preserving the minority communities too. “The BJP knows the apprehension and fears of the minority communities that their cultures and identities will be swallowed by the mainstream communities, so as long as the NDA government is there, the party will ensure that the identities and rights of minority communities will be protected,” he assured.
While criticising the former regimes before the BJP government of lacking in empowering the public and serious discussions on welfare and development, he stated that ever since the BJP came to power much have been accomplished in its two years of governance and in Manipur too, the BJP had also came to power. “And during its short term period, the BJP government have accomplished much more than other previous government in their 15 years of governance,” N. Biren lamented.
He further stated that after the BJP government came to power, several issues which have been neglected by the previous regimes had been taken up citing various programmes and initiatives such as the distribution of LPG cylinders under the UJWALA scheme; distribution of CMHT and Ayushman Cards; Go to Village and Go to Hills campaign amongst others. “It is the imperative of the government to ensure the development and progress of the economically backward sections of society by providing equal educational, work and other related opportunities,” N. Biren said adding that the schemes and projects of the BJP government such as “Go to School” has provided these opportunities which the previous governments have failed so far.
The CM also assured that the government have already furnished schemes to provide potable water to all areas of the state before 2022 with an estimated fund of around Rs 2600 crore while also mentioning development plans for minority communities at Lilong and the establishment of seven Ima markets which have been inaugurated and handed over to the public. “The law and order situation in the State has also improved considerably with shops and stores remaining open even up to 11: pm at night,” he said adding that only when the different communities residing in the State live in peace and harmony then progress and development can be achieved.
“The BJP will surely return to power again with N. Modi as PM,” the CM continued adding a public appeal to support its candidates in the upcoming parliamentary elections.
BJP candidate, Dr. R.K. Ranjan, in his speech, appealed the people to take the upcoming election seriously stating that the Lok Sabha plays a vital role in the democratic functioning of the nations. “During the previous 15 years, MPs from Manipur have been of little or no consequences and the Congress after raising various issues including ILP, CAB and the Indo-Myammar Border Pillar have done nothing while putting the blame on BJP,” he lamented terming it as “unfortunate.”
