IMPHAL, October 14: BJP today conducted a one day political discussion programme today at Thongju Kendra.
Speaking at the discussion, Th Bishwajit said the Election Commission of India had enquired over the phone today whether the matter regarding disqualification of the MLAs of the 10th Manipur Legislative Assembly including himself have been taken to the court.
He said the government seem to have wrongly informed the ECI that the former MLAs of Thongju and Thangmeiband constituencies have taken up the matter before the court.
He said he replied in the negative to the enquiry from the ECI as the people of Thongju are ready for bye-election.
Now, the ECI has confirmed fresh bye-elections for the two constituencies, he added.
He also assured to launch a woman based scheme under the Prime Minister in the Thongju which will provide loan on zero interest.
The scheme has been approved by the Central government for Thongju only, although the scheme is yet to be named, he said.
This scheme will benefit women in generating income, he said.
Bishwajit also assured that construction of the sport stadium at Khongman Akham will be constructed in 2017 as approved by Union Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports Sarbananda Sonowal.
Bishwajit claimed that in a recent political conference of the Congress party in Thangmeiband, Nambol MLA Loken had alleged that Biswajit is like a drummer of ritual ceremony.
He challenged the MLA that after the 2017 election he will make the MLA and his supporters dance on his tune.
He further alleged that MLA Loken during his term as the minister of Social Welfare had manipulated constructions of Anganwadi centres without actually constructing any.
So when the Union government asked for utilisation certificate, he was unable to produce any certificates, Bishwajit claimed.
Bishwajit also claimed that before his time as the MLA of Thongju there were no signs of any road construction under PMGSY, however after he became the MLA, in introduced two packages under Phase IX PMGSY and three packages under PMGSY Phase X.
He said that during the time of Congress MLA in Thongju there were no electrical crematorium in the constituency, however, now there are 15 such crematoriums.
The Congress always spread wrong allegations without having any interest of development for the people, he said.
He further lamented that due to inefficient leaders, every sector in the State including education has failed to see any growth.
He also appealed to the people of Thongju to elect good leaders.
