Imphal, September 07 2011:
Works Minister K Ranjit has clarified that he had not mention anything communal while addressing in day-long political conference organised by Mayang Imphal Election Campaign Committee under Mayang Imphal Block Congress Committee at Masjarul Ulum Bengoon on September 4 .
Talking to mediapersons in his office chamber today, Minister Ranjit said it was very unfortunate that he had been wrongly quoted by vice president of Sadar Hills Districthood Demand Committee Thangkham Lupheng.
The Minister asserted that he had never said that conceding to the district demand for Sadar hills in the interest of just one community would create social upheaval.
All that he had said in the said conference was that the Government is looking into the issue and a State level District Re-organisation Committee with Chief Secretary as the chairman has been formed in this regard.
The Minister pointed out that what he had said in the conference could be verified from the video recording of the event.
