IMPHAL, Aug 19: Showing solidarity to Anna Hazare in his struggle against corruption, the Bharatiya Janta Party, Manipur Pradesh today held a sit-in-protest at Nityaipat Chuthek, Imphal.
Speaking to media persons during the protest, state BJP president, Sh Shantikumar Sharma stated the Congress led UPA government has sidelined the Lokpal Bill with the motive to conceal the corrupt practices of the Congress leaders.
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is revered as an honest leader by the Congress Party but he is unable to control his subordinates. He must step down from the Prime Minister’s chair on moral ground, he demanded.
The Lokpal Bill demanded by Anna Hazare and his team is to enhance the democratic setups of the country. True meaning of democracy can be realized only with the legislation of Lokpal Bill which aims to fight corruption in the country, Shantikumar asserted.
