In a release, RK Imo said, “This was possible after the intervention of the Supreme Court for the second time in a year in Uttaranchal and Arunachal terming it as unconstitutional. Stop blatant misuse of Article 356. If any party wants to come to power in a State, go through electoral means by going to the people and not by unconstitutional means.”
“There are also many leaders from other political parties who have been giving statements in the public domain that many MLAs from the Congress Party in Manipur will leave and join other political parties very soon. If we respect democracy under the Indian Constitution, then stop saying or giving statements, which are unwarranted and uncalled for.”
“Please go the electorate in 2017 and come to power if the people are supportive of you and your party. Till then please stop giving such comments in the public. Let the Supreme Court not remind the political parties again and again not to act through unconstitutional means. If possible the post of the governor should be totally abolished as suggested by CMs of various states,” said the MLA in a release.
