IMPHAL, March 22: Since the selection process of the BJP Manipur Pradesh president is still pending, both national and state leaders of the party cannot speak as they wish to, said BJP politician O Joy.
Speaking to IFP, Joy said during a visit to the State in the second week of February, BJP national general secretary Ram Madhav had announced in a public function that the process for selection of the BJP Manipur president will be finalised by the end of the month; however, the process is yet to be completed, although it is already March.
He said the party’s Manipur in charge MP Prahlad Patel had about two-three days back announced that the process for selection of the president is underway.
Under such circumstance, the statements of the incumbent president of the BJP Manipur Thounaojam Chaoba Singh and other leaders of the party on the issue of the party’s president are unethical, outside the party’s constitution and misleading for the public, he said.
Joy said no leader of the party should indulge in such action.
He said even president in charge Th Chaoba Singh or national leaders of the party have no authority to speak on the issue.
The BJP has its own constitution and the process should continue according to it, he said.
