Thongju continues protest against MLA disqualification


IMPHAL, May 29: For the second consecutive day following the Manipur Legislative Assembly Speaker passing a judgment disqualifying three Trinamool Congress MLAs including Thongju MLA Thongam Bishwajit, locals of the constituency today came out to the streets decrying the judgment and burning effigies of the Speaker.

Locals of Mongkhang Lambi led by the Mongkhang Lambi Meira Paibi Lup took out a protest rally in their locality against the judgment and later burn an effigy of the Speaker at the bridge connecting the locality to Singjamei Waikhom Leikai.

The protestors also raised slogans condemning the Speaker`™s decision to disqualify the three Trinamool MLAs.

Speaking to the media on the sideline of the protest, president of the meira paibi body, Th Bino said we don`™t know what type of a man Manipur Legislative Assembly Speaker Th Lokeshwar is.

Demanding a clarification from the Speaker as to on what ground the MLA was disqualified, she further asked whether the MLA had conducted any undemocratic actions which led to his disqualification.

In case the Speaker fail to clarify on the issue at the earliest, the people would have to consider him as an irresponsible Speaker, she said.

At the same time, the people will re-elect Bishwajit as the local representative in the fresh polls and defeat the decision, she continued.
