IMPHAL, April 1: Stating that people of the state have been reeling under the misrule of the Congress government for the last 13 years without any notable development, president of BJP Manipur Pradesh Th Chaoba has announced that the party will fight all the 144 seats in the upcoming ADC election under the collective leadership of all the senior leaders of the party.
Addressing a press meet here at the office of BJP Manipur Pradesh located at Nityaipat Chuthek this morning, Chaoba said that the main objective of the party is to root out the culture of corruption completely from the state.
He exuded confidence that the BJP would sweep the election comprehensively as faith of the people lies with the party while adding that the main focus of the party is on bringing collective growth and development in the state.
The prolonged grievances faced by people of hills can be solved once all the ADC Members are empowered which the Congress government has apparently failed to do so. Funds sanctioned for better road connectivity, electric power and potable water in the hill districts have been siphoned off by Congress MLAs and Ministers, Chaoba alleged.
Asserting that the ADC members will be entrusted with the responsibility of devolution of powers to the ADC if the BJP wins the election, the president of BJP assured that the party will urge the central government to speed up developmental works in the hill districts.
He also said that the BJP has further consolidated its position with the joining of 2,55,000 people including intellectuals and academicians in the state during the nation-wide online and enrolment drive of the BJP.
He then informed that president of BJP Amit Shah has decided to extend the enrolment and online membership drive up to April 30.
