Launching a fresh attack to Congress government in Manipur, Union Human Resource Development minister Prakash Javadekar Friday said that “Ibobi government is in lodge with UGs/insurgent.”
“……..there is terrific potential for tourism, industrialization, business opportunities in Manipur. But everything is ruined by Ibobi who is handling his government with the UGs.”
“Ibobi government is in lodge with the UGs/insurgents, and that is disturbing the whole peace of Manipur,” said the national BJP leader who is camping in Imphal and taking part in the election campaign of party candidates.
He further alleged that people of the state were tired of blockades, bandhs and corruption while expressing hopes that this time people will dethrone Ibobi from the chief minister’s seat.
Reacting to chief minister O Ibobi’s prediction of Congress winning 2/3 of the total 60-seat of the state Assembly, the Union HRD minister said that BJP will form a new government after the general elections.
“After counting of vote on March 11, BJP will form a new government on March 12 and chief minister O Ibobi Singh will be sent to jail,” Javadekar said while hurling various corruption charges against the incumbent state chief minister.
He alleged Ibobi and his people in the government of taking money in terms of lakhs as bribes in the appointment to government jobs besides siphoning a huge chunk of fund invested in the state by the Centre for development and welfare activities of the people. Javadekar addressing a news conference at BJP office also took a dig on Ibobi led congress government for failing to provide adequate drinking water even after 15 years of rule in the state.
“While he cannot provide safe drinking water in his last 15 years regime, Ibobi is promising for providing the same if he is given another chance to form the government. He is fooling the people. Everybody knows it,” he said.
Reiterating that under Ibobi’s 15 years, Manipur has been totally ruined, the national BJP leader said peace have been greatly disturbed in the state. The brotherhood bond among the people of hills and plain has been distorted by the Congress government, he said.
The BJP leader claimed a reducing popularity of Congress with the approaching of polls. “Congress has become very unpopular these days that they can’t even organize public meeting as they don’t have supporters like the BJP. The idea of Congress party is to buy votes and utilization of muscle power during election” Javadekar added.
