Imphal, Feb 27 : Predicting a nexus between insurgent group and state government Union Minister Prakash Javadekar accused congress party for ignoring the issue of economic blocked.
Hitting hard at the Manipur government Javadekar said that Congress government has no substantial answers to the questions raised by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his first election rally.
He was speaking at the election meeting in the Western region of Imphal. He stated that law and order is the responsibility of state government but central government has taken various steps to mitigate the three-month long economic blockade imposed by United Naga Council (UNC).
Javadekar, who is in-charge for the Manipur polls, reiterated that, “if BJP comes to power it will end the blockade”. He also mentioned that the Centre is ready to provide any sort of assistance to reduce the sufferings of the common people.
Referring to the rampant corruption in the state Javadekar underlined that even after ruling the state for 15-years congress party has failed to provide basic facility like potable water to the people where state manages drinking water from water tankers spending Rs 2,000 per month, said minister.
Calling PM’s first election rally a “grand success”, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar said that BJP will emerge as the single largest party and it will win 40 seats in the upcoming Manipur elections. The two-phase state Assembly elections are scheduled on March 4 and March 8.
