CPI to keep tabs on Cong Govt in Manipur

By Sobhapati Samom

IMPHAL, April 8 � Though it failed to return a single candidate in the January 28 elections to the 10th Manipur Legislative Assembly, the Communist Party of India (CPI) is all set to play a major role of the Opposition from outside.

Stating this, CPI State secretary Dr M Nara of the Manipur State Council recalled that the CPI had been going along with the Congress for the last 10 years as a partner in the Congress-led Secular Progressive Front Government and had tried its level best to solve various issues in the interest of the people.

However, the Congress did everything at its own discretion and never consulted the CPI. So, the efforts made by the CPI to ameliorate the sufferings of the people suffered a serious setback. The CPI leader said, �In spite of our failure to elect a single member to the State Assembly, the party will still observe each move of the ruling Congress party from outside.�

The party will also try to mend its mistakes and go along with the people on all issues, he added. The CPI will also take on the Congress �for misusing the funds sanctioned for various developmental works.� It will also highlight the issues of the State as well as the country and rectify the faults in the system along with the support of the people.

Analysing the reasons behind the downfall of the party in the recent elections to the State Legislative Assembly, Dr M Nara, who had contested from the Wangjing-Tentha seat, alleged that it was due to the use of muscle and money power by the Congress. On the alleged report of manipulation of the EVMs in the Manipur elections, he added that the CPI is trying to analyse the motive behind the use of EVMs in the elections when most technologically advanced nations in the world have done away with the EVMs. The use of EVMs is against the spirit of democracy, he maintained. He also said that his party stands for lifting of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act and preservation of the integrity of Manipur.
