Imphal, October 22 2011:
The on-going protracted highway blockade and counter blockade for and against Sadar Hills district would be suicidal for all communities of Manipur, stated MPCC president Gaikhangam.
speaking at a political workers' convention at Mekola public ground organised by Naoriya Pakhanglakpa Block Mahila Congress Committee, he said the term 'indefinite' attached to any form of agitation has become allergic to the public.
Stating that it was not right to make the people suffer for a prolonged period in pursuit of certain demands, Gaikhangam invited all to come to the negotiating table so that amicable solutions can be explored jointly.
Other speakers who addressed the gathering said many people who are not genuine Congress workers have joined the race for the party tickets.
These efforts of non-Congress men aimed at securing party tickets will prove futile, they asserted.
The convention resolved to ensure landslide victory for Congress party in the forthcoming elections.
