Imphal, December 09 2016:
While expressing astonishment at the creation of seven new revenue districts in the State, BJP Manipur Pradesh election management committee convenor Th Chaoba has asserted that the new districts were created not for administrative convenience but for 'political convenience' .
Speaking to media persons at their Nityaipat Chuthek office today, Chaoba said that the people would not be fooled by the latest knee jerk reaction of the Congress Government by creating seven districts.
He remarked that the creation of new districts in haste when the State election is round the corner is aimed at scoring political mileage.
He said that he and BJP Manipur Pradesh vice-president M Asnikumar called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday and apprised him about the ongoing economic blockade being imposed by the UNC.
The Prime Minister gave a patient hearing and assured to take up necessary action to end the blockade.
With regard to the IED found planted at his residential gate, Chaoba maintained that he has been an active campaigner against all fake encounters.
He went on to claim that he opposed the entry of persons like retired DGP Y Joykumar into the fold of BJP as most of the fake encounters took place during his tenure as the State DGP.
"Y Joykumar joined the BJP through online registration and formally joined after my tenure as BJP Manipur Pradesh president", Chaoba added.
