BJP assures devolution of power to ADCs


IMPHAL, April 27: The BJP will ensure devolution of power to the Autonomous District Councils, if it wins maximum seats in the upcoming election, said party national executive member and Manipur incharge Tapir Gao today.

The BJP, he said is very much concern about the minorities mostly Christians.

Other political parties are spreading false propaganda that the party is a religious and anti-Christian or anti-minority party, he said addressing a one day political conference at the Church of Thanglalkhuren Village in Tengnoupal today.

BJP has a huge room for minorities specially Christians and the weaker section and the party has always stood for the Christians, he continued.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has already defeated the Congress party and is now emphasizing more on the North Eastern States to develop them at par with the rest of the country, he continued.

However, it is very unfortunate that there is a big hindrance in Manipur during delivery of development packages in the form of the Congress government of 13 long years, Tapir said.

Corruption in the State has hindered development from reaching the hills of the State, he continued.

If the BJP can win maximum seats in the ADC election, there will be a new task for the party to initiate for development in the State with full support from the Centre, he said.

Devolution of power which the Congress government has been neglecting for long would also be realized, he told the people.

There will be big changes in the State political scenario, if the BJP comes to power after defeating the Congress, BJP Manipur Pradesh president Th Chaoba said.

BJP will ensure a long vision of development in the State once it comes to power after the long devastating years of the Congress, he continued.

People are aware that huge development funds are sanctioned for the hills, but it has seldom reached the hill districts and development has only been in paper and not in reality, Chaoba continued.

The main cause for all these is corruption, malpractices, disparity towards the hill people, etc, he said.

The only solution is a new State government of the BJP, he said.

He said all those involved in the misuse of funds meant for development of the hills should be punished along with all those involved in scams and corruptions and first step would be electing the BJP candidates in the ADC election.

BJP State general secretary administration, Asnikumar said the people of the hills have never tasted the flavor of democracy under the Congress government.

The present government under the Congress has no long vision of development and they can only make temporary assurances to the public, he said.

Now is the right time to teach the Congress a befitting lesson, he said adding that starting from this ADC election and till the 2017 general election to the State Assembly, the Congress should be rooted out from the State and ensure a clean, prosperous and peaceful environment in the State.
