IMPHAL, Jan 15 - Union Human Resources Development Minister Prakash Javadekar, who is BJP election in- charge for Manipur, along with party�s NE in-charge and MP Prahlad Patel arrived here today on a two-day visit to the State to monitor and take up party�s plan of attack in the ensuing crucial Assembly elections.
A victory in last year�s Assembly polls in neighbouring Assam has boosted BJP�s confidence to overthrow Congress rule and grab power for the first time in Manipur. After the party came to power in his State, Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu also recently said that BJP would succeed in forming the government in Manipur.
�Our (poll) plank is unite and develop while their (Congress) plank is divide and rule,� Javadekar claimed. �People (here) want a change and change is what we will deliver�, he added.
On the issue of indefinite economic blockade in the State, the Union Minister said, �Centre has provided adequate security to open the blockade but Chief Minister Ibobi did not use it. If he can�t remove the blockade he should resign�, he demanded.
