BJP Manipur Unit stages dharna against black money


By A Staff ReporterIMPHAL, June 6: Showing solidarity to the nation wide Satyagraha initiated by Yog Rishi Baba  Ramdev against corruption, the members of the Manipur state unit of Bharat Swabhiman Nyas and Patanjali Yog Samiti uder the aegis of state Unit Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) staged a one-day satyagraha against corruption in front of its office gate here from 8 am to 4 pm Monday. Speaking to the mediapersons at the sideline of the protest, the state secretary general of the BJP Th Shyamo said that the one-day satyagraha was launched in connection with the arrest and eviction of Baba Ramdev from Ram Lila ground, New Delhi forcibly by Delhi police.
Forcibly breaking the peaceful agitation of Baba Ramdev and his followers by the Delhi police with the use of lathi is strongly objectionable, said the BJP Manipur secretary general.
He went on to say that the BJP also demands for the bringing back of black money stashed away by Indians on foreign shores. “Black money account holders are Congress leaders and bureaucrats who are in the payroll of the Congress because of which the Congress led coalition government at the centre is dithering on the demand,” Shyamo said.
Corruption in public place and black money accrued by the corrupt state government are not new things for the people of Manipur which have been exposed more particularly in the selling and buying of the posts of constables and sub inspectors at the price tags ranging from Rs 5 lakh to 25 lakh, he alleged.
L Basanta, secretary media affairs, said that the chairman of BJP-led national coalition of opposition National Democratic Alliance (NDA), LK Advani had today met the President of India seeking the initiation of a special parliament session to discuss the issue of black money.
The BJP Manipur pradesh strongly condemns the state cabinet decision of not attesting positive feedback to the draft Lok Pal bill which the central government had earlier sent seeking recommendation from the state, he said, adding that this is a covert sign of encouraging corruption in the state by the government.
