Imphal: Freedom of expression, choosing our own religion, consuming our own choice of food items are our rights that are clearly written in the Constitution of India but after the BJP government came in power all these rights have been robbed and vanished. There is only one political party that thinks for the people and for the country and that is the Congress party.
The statement was made by the former MLA of Moirang A/c M. Prithviraj while speaking as the chief guest during a public meeting held for the Lilong A/c Congress candidate Md. Azizul Haque Khan at the residence of the Moulana Riyajuddin at Lilong Lairaba Khong also known as Crore Mourubi, Lilong on Wednesday in connection with the upcoming by-poll to be held on November 7, 2020
He further said that instead of taking the responsibility for ensuring development, the BJP is meddling among communities, trying to create hatred among them. We should stop supporting such political parties that have been trying to force India into a Hindu country, he said.
Prithiviraj continued that the law is being made by the people and the rules and regulations binding religions are unchangeable. But in opposite to this concept, the BJP has interfered in the Triple Talaq meant for only Muslim community which is known by every citizen. The only political party which stands for the state and for the nation is the Congress party. As we all know, the people of Lilong Assembly constituency have been showing their love towards the Congress party for years, he said and appealed to all the people of the constituency to continue their support in the upcoming bye-election.
Former MLA from Kshetrigao cum General Secretary of MPCC Md. Amin Shah said that news about new construction and development of Lilong A/C are disseminated a lot through mass media. But on direct inspection there is no change and the place is found to remain the same as it had been for the last many years. In such a situation it is the right time for the people of the constituency to realize which candidate we have to cast our votes for, he said.
Congress candidate from the constituency Md. Azizul Haque Khan made an earnest confession to the people that the reason he is fighting the by-poll is to make some contribution to the constituency as the son of the soil. If the people put their faith in him and elect him as their representative, he promised to work with determination and transparency for bringing development in every segment of the constituency.
Because of the existence of a gap between the people and their legislator, after his election, the voice of resentment has been growing against him. In order to close the gap in communication after winning the vote, it is imperative that the public representative walk closely hand in hand with the people, he said.
Members of MPCC Md. Sirajuddin, W Rata, S. Gope, former INC aspirant Khadijin, Md. Liyakat Ali and Alhaj Hasan attended as the presidium members on the day.
