The poll for the Manipur Legislative Assembly is knocking at the door and newspapers are getting more and more devoid of charms with the two goliath political entities i.e. Congress & BJP splashing political maxims and slogans praising their own party in the mean time criticising the other, that also in the front of all newspapers of the state occupying almost the whole page. I wonder whether it is the right to information or right to misinformation which we are being privileged with. Well, the D-day is tomorrow.
After a few days we will be witnessing the one which emerges triumphant and the one that bites the dust. RCW has brought out a speck of media war between the two parties:-
