IMPHAL, July 7: Deputy Chief Mister Gaikhangam visited Shija Research Hospital on Monday to meet the Editor of the English edition of Sangai Express who has been hospitalised since July 3 after meeting a road accident.
Speaking to media persons after meeting the Editor, the Dy CM stated that he will urge the CM to take-up positive steps for the welfare of media persons in the State.
He further said that he highlighted some of the issues of the State during his recent visit to Delhi. He met Sonia Gandhi after attending a party meeting chaired by senior Congress leader AK Anthony.
During the meeting with Sonia Gandhi, he said the demand of a midterm cabinet reshuffle in the state by some MLAs was raised to her, adding that the party is not against any one raising their voice to be heard.
Gaikhangam appealed to all the MLAs of the state to not cause any problem and to not do anything to risk losing the confidence of the people.
The CM will solve the problem of the State by using his wisdom, he added.
The Manipur government wants a stable government which requires the collective understanding of all Congress legislators to strive towards creating a peaceful and developed state, he said, adding that it is unfortunate that even when such an issue occurs the opposition is silent.
