Public will face more struggles with BJP’s return to power: CPIIMPHAL | May 25
“With the return of Bharatiya Janata Party to the power in the Country, the State will now face bigger struggles as issues surrounding Armed Forces Special Power Act, border pillars, 7th central pay commission and others are still pending. State Communist Party of India (CPI) will face the pending issues to fulfill the grievances under the interest of the public.”
This was stated by general secretary, State CPI, Sotinkumar during a press conference held today at its state party office located at Thangal Bazar, Imphal.
He expressed his satisfaction that the intending candidate of the party Dr. Moirangthem Nara was voted with more than 1.32 lakhs though he secured the third position in the recent Manipur Inner Lok Sabha election. The number of votes showed that in the State, there are people who stand for the truth in spite of all the muscle and money power put in the elections, he added.
Sotinkumar further said it has already mentioned in the election manifesto the BJP that citizenship amendment bill will implement in the country if BJP holds the central government. It will be a huge struggle for the State in order to solve the issues which are against the interest of people, he added.
Intending inner Lok Sabha candidate of CPI, Manipur, Dr. M. Nara said the need of the country is to change the ongoing trends in the electoral system.
The present trends suggest that minority voters are not influenced by corrupted means of garnering votes. Therefore, to change the system, the party will undertake a stronger campaign for the minority representation, he added.
Electoral reform campaign has already started and we need to stimulate the campaign to bring a change in the country, said Nara.
As new government will be formed by the majority party, he will be attending a national executive meeting of CPI which will be conducted on May 27 and 28 at Ajay Bhavan, New Delhi. In the meeting, CPI will discuss the initial task to be taken by the party in order to strengthen the campaign to bring changes. He said the recent vote was conducted by means of money power and manipulative measures, which people will realize in the near future.
He gave his greeting to the winning candidate of inner and outer Manipur Lok Sabha election and appealed the people to have a better understanding of the system.
