The JAC Sadar Hills summoned the three Congress MLAs of Sadar Hills including the IFC Minister Ngamthang Haokip today at Kangpokpi town, when the Manipur Congress Government failed to declare Sadar Hills as a full-fledged district as assured and to decide the fate of Sadar Hills.
The meeting held at District Council Hall, Kangpokpi was attended by JAC Sadar Hills members, leaders of CSOs, Kuki Inpi Sadar Hills, Congress Councillors apart from the three Sadar Hills Congress MLAs.
The JAC Sadar Hills leaders and CSO leaders termed the State Government as a 'bungling and very weak Government' and asserted that the people of Sadar Hills have completely lost faith in the Congress Government after so many years of supporting the party.
The people of Sadar Hills elected three Congress MLAs from Sadar Hills, made the Congress Councillors form the ADC Sadar Hills with absolute majority while taking a key role in electing a Congress MP from Outer Manipur, recalled the JAC.
The JAC Sadar Hills general secretary also gave a detailed account of the meeting between JAC Sadar Hills and Manipur Congress Government on the Sadar Hills issue during the meeting.
Following the repeated betrayal of the Congress Government, the JAC ultimately decided to boycott the Congress party in Sadar Hills with effect from today, (November 9), 2016 .
JAC Sadar Hills Co-Convener, Tonglen Lunkim reiterating the stand of JAC Sadar Hills on November 4 meeting at Kangpokpi and considering the public outcry against the Congress Government, said the meeting unanimously decided to boycott Congress party in Sadar Hills from today.
He continued that any activities related with Congress party including political party meeting, vote campaign, etc is totally boycotted in the entire Sadar Hills administration while asking all organizations or individuals to abstain from inviting any Congress MLA, Councillors or workers to participate in any kind of event in Sadar Hills.
He also warned that punitive action will be initiated accordingly to any person or organization violating the public decision to boycott the Congress party in Sadar Hills.
The JAC Sadar Hills also asked the Congress MLAs to cooperate with the decision while asking the Congress Councillors to sever ties with the Congress party and form the local self Government with any party of their choice at the earliest.
However, the JAC Sadar Hills refrained from stating anything over the public apprehension of bandh, blockade or strike on the issue stating that anything could happen according to the situation.
