Joykumar seeks forgiveness for son's 'arrogance' on FB
Source: The Sangai Express / Hindustan Times

Imphal, March 17 2017: Barely two days into his job, Manipur's Deputy Chief Minister Yumnam Joykumar Singh is doing some serious fire-fighting on social media, courtesy his son, Yumnam Devjit.

Singh, a former Director General of Police, took to Facebook on Friday to apologise for the "arrogance" of Devjit and requested people to ignore his outbursts that have followed his elevation.

"My son has a wild imagination when it comes to politics and democracy.

Please forgive him.

If his arrogance takes the better of him, please do inform me," Singh wrote on his Facebook page.

The 63-year-old who belongs to National People's Party (NPP), a constituent of the new BJP-led coalition in the State, took oath of office on Wednesday.

He confirmed to HT that he did write the post in response to what his son had posted.

Singh, however, didn't say which of the posts had offended him.

But, Devjit has been busy.

The day Singh took oath of office, Devjit updated his Facebook cover photo and captioned it: "I am Manipur Dy CM's son" .

The Facebook cover photo posted by Yumnam Devjit on March 15, the day his father was sworn in as Deputy CM of Manipur.

It was a follow up of a post put out a day earlier that said, "The good, bad and ugly (NPP, NPF and BJP resptly)" .

A distressed Singh took on his son.

"Stop commenting and updating your status unnecessarily with half baked knowledge of democracy.

Your imagination is running wild, control it," he wrote.

Devjit is the owner of a solar energy service provider firm called Mayol.

This is the first time that the BJP has been voted to power in Manipur.

Though the party finished second with 21 seats behind Congress' 28 in a hung House, it cobbled together an alliance to have the support of 33 MLAs in the 60-member House.

Besides NPP, the other coalition partners are the Naga People's Front, Lok Janshakti Party, Trinamool Congress, an Independent and a Congress MLA who switched sides.
