Twelve National People’s Front (NPF) members of Phungyar assembly constituency and Tangkhul Naga Long (TNL) former president, Hopingson A Shimray joined Bharatiya Janata Party on Saturday at state BJP office located at Nityaipat Chuthek, Imphal.

Speaking on the occasion, chief minister N Biren expressed his contentment over NPF members joining BJP saying that NPF is one of the coalition political parties of the present BJP-led government in the state. He appealed to the people of Phungyar to join BJP so that more development could be brought in Ukhrul and Kamjong districts.

With the coming of the present government in the last few years, there have been various developments both in hills and valleys. As a part of the development carried out by the government almost all the households of Kamjong district have been provided with drinking water facilities, he added.

He said Kamjong and Ukhrul districts are still lagging behind in development as compared with other districts.

Appealing to the people of the district to enrol to BJP for more development, the CM said that any individual can enrol to the party by giving a missed call to the mobile number +918980808080 at any time.

State BJP president, A Sharda Devi said that in the next one or two months, BJP is going to allot party tickets for the BJP intending candidates.

She said no political parties other than BJP had been able to bring a good relationship among the people of hills and valleys. It could be the first time in the history after India's independence that the people of hills have come to the valley to help the people in valley areas by donating fruits and vegetables. The ongoing pandemic is a tough time and the relationship grows among the people, she added.

With the BJP-led coalition government, bandh, strikes, economic blockades have been reduced immensely as compared with the period of the then government. The reason is due to bringing equal development both in hills and valleys and the party always prioritises in bringing equality not only in Manipur but in the entire north-eastern states, she added.

BJP co-in-charge (Election), Manipur, Ashok Singhal, who is also a cabinet minister of Assam, said that in the coming state assembly election BJP will be winning over 40 seats to form an absolute majority government. He said that a maximum number of seats will be won in hill districts in the upcoming election.

BJP intending candidate, Hopingson assured that there will be maximum number of winning seats from Ukhrul and Kamjong in the coming election. He also appreciated chief minister N Biren and other members of BJP for welcoming him to the party.

BJP general secretary (Organisation), Abhay Kumar Giri; Rajya Sabha MP, Leishemba Sanajaoba; state Education minister, S Rajen also attended the felicitation programme.
