IMPHAL, February 5: Various issues such as harassment, rape, murder etc confronting the students and employees of the north east including Manipur in the national capital will be highlighted in the ongoing Parliament session.
This was stated by Moirangthem Tombi Singh, president of the Janata Dal (United) during a press meet at the party office in Babupara.
He said that JD (U) condemned the recent atrocities against the NE people in Delhi.
“National party president Sarat Yadav will talk in the parliamentary session on the discrimination and condescending attitude towards people from North-East. I will attend the national executive council meeting from February 7- 9, 2014 and raise the issues of border fencing, removal of AFSPA, protection along the national highways of the state, the issue of Makru Bridge etc. Makru Bridge is instrumental for the smooth plying of commercial heavy vehicles along the Imphal-Jiri national highway number 37.”
Demanding the improvement of conditions of the national highways in the state to the standard of best national highways of the country, he said that the present political scenario in Manipur is something unique as the political leaders speak more and do less work.
Promising good governance in state after Lok Sabha elections, he told IFP that Dr M Nara Singh is supported by ten political parties operating in the state including JD (U) as the candidate for the inner Manipur parliamentary constituency and as for the outer seat the candidate will be announced after February 11, adding that 14 different national political parties will join together for a Third Front in the country, and for this, a meeting will be soon convened at the centre.
