New Delhi, Nov 22 (UNI): Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday claimed that the law and order improved in Manipur under the current dispensation.
“We had promised that there will not be any hartal, bandh or blockade in the state. In the last five years under the BJP regime neither hartal, nor bandh or blockade have happened. Law and order situation improved in Manipur. The kind of law and order situation we thought, the same has been delivered by Biren Singh,” said Shah, as he heaped praises on Chief Minister N Biren Singh for carrying out continuous development in poll-bound Manipur.
Shah expressed confidence that people of Manipur will once again bring the BJP back to power given the kind of law and order that has been maintained by the Biren Singh government.
“CM Biren Singhji under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modiji has fulfilled all the promises made by BJP in Manipur. Various development works are being carried out by the ruling BJP government in the last five years.
“I am hopeful that next mandate would be given to the BJP government in Manipur,” said Shah after virtually laying the foundation stone for setting up of the Rani Gaidinliu Tribal Freedom Fighters Museum, named after renowned freedom fighter at Luangkao village in Tamenglong district of Manipur.
In a veiled attack at the previous Congress government led by Okram Ibobi Singh, Shah said, “Everyone took their votes but did not think about their development. On one side, 70 years of development of Manipur and on the other Narendra Modiji and N Biren Singhji’s development carried out in the state. If we look into it, I am confident that our five years will have an upper edge.”
Assembly elections in Manipur are likely to be held early next year.
