Imphal, September 06 2011:
If the Sadar hills issue is not going to be resolved and the public are to be made suffered continuously, then its time for the Centre to intervene for removal the present Congress led Government and impose President's rule in the State, BJP State unit president Sh Shantikumar as stated.
Talking to mediapersons at the Nityapat Chuthek office here today, Shantikumar said it is irresponsible on the part of Chief Minister O Ibobi Singh to leave Manipur and go on a foreign trip at such a critical junction when the public have been suffering for over one month now following imposition of economic blockade along the National Highways over the Sadar hills issue.
This only shows insincerity and his lack of concern over the plight of the people.
If the issue is not being able to resolve and put an end to the suffering of the people, then it is better to abolish the present Congress led Government and impose President's rule in the State, Shantikumar contended, while seeking the intervention of the Centre in resolving the present crisis in Manipur.
The inability of the Government to translate the assurance given over Sadar hills district demand into action despite admitting that it is a genuine demand has thrown the people into the present crisis.
There has also been no sincere effort on the part of the Government towards resolving the issue, he alleged, while questioning what would happen to the latest assurance of creating of Sadar hills district after the Committee submits its report if the election code of conduct has been enforced before that ? .
Such inordinate delay would infuriate the people all the more, he added.
Maintaining that prolonged imposition of economic blockade and the resultant suffering caused to the people has shown decline in the support extended to Sadar Hills District Demand Committee, Shantikumar appealed for lifting the economic blockade and taking up some other democratic form of agitation in the interest of the suffering public.
