Prime Minister Narendra Modi has promised the people that there is nothing in the peace accord signed between the NSCN-IM and the government of India that would disintegrate or break the territorial integrity of Manipur.
Modi was addressing a BJP’s election campaign rally at Langjing Achouba ground in Imphal West, today. People stood up and applause when he said BJP will safeguard the territorial integrity of Manipur at any cost and there is nothing in the peace accord that would create disharmony and break territorial integrity of Manipur.
As he stood at the podium he greeted the people in Manipuri Langauge that cheered up the crowd. He said during his last visit in Manipur there was not as half of the people gathered today at the same ground.
Manipur known as the Switzerland of India is shattered by the 15 years of congress regime. When he asked the people who was responsible for this people answered ‘Congress’.
Modi said Congress has been playing games creating enmity among communities and not taken interest for the welfare and development of Manipur. “Give the chance to govern the state to BJP, it will take up development activities in 15 months that were not done by the Congress in 15 years” added the Prime Minister.
The past Congress government had no time to meet the leaders of the North east states. I always open my door to them to discuss for the welfare. Whether the development schemes and welfare schemes are properly implemented will be dealt when I meet the chief ministers of the north east states, said Modi.
Only after 40 years I am the first Prime Minister to participate in the NEC meeting which the PMs didn’t in the past 40 years, he said.
Modi also said the state is not ready to construct the sports minister when the centre is ready to help. The state doesn’t want to give power supply to the people when the centre is ready to help, added Modi.
When the Rs.500 and Rs. 1,000 notes were banned the congress raised its voice against demonetisation to take action against the strategy, said Modi. The money robbed which are meant for the people now can be utilised for the welfare of the poor, youth education and health, added Modi.
How is the state government running when the people do not get essential commodities and medicines due to the blockade which has crossed three months. The congress government is allowing the blockade so to earn advantages for the election; if you need help the centre is ready, said Modi. “When BJP comes to power in the state there will be no blockade; I will show you how to run a government” added Modi.
He said chief minister Okram Ibobi is popular as 10 % and this will be turned into 0 %. There will be 100 percent development in the state instead of the 10 percent system when BJP rules, added Modi.
Saying that BJP has taken up various welfare schemes and development projects for the poors, youth, children and women, health and education, the Prime minister said the state will soon witness Vikash.
Modi was here amid tight security arrangement following the boycott against his visit by the CorCom.
It was the first time that a Titular King of Manipur was invited and takes part at a visit of a Prime Minister of India. Leisemba Sanajaoba thanked the BJP for acknowledging him to take part in the gathering with Modi.
Speaking ahead of the Prime Minister he appealed to reveal what is there in the Framework agreement signed with the NSCN-IM. The framework agreement should not be against the peaceful coexistence of different communities in the state, added Leisemba.
