“BJP has misled the people of Manipur. The state government is using renamed versions of programmes taken up by the Congress government, which have been incorporated in the 100 days programme,” MPCC spokesperson Kh Joykishan said at a press meet in Congress Bhavan on Sunday.
“We’re indeed thankful to the government when it comes to delivering of development but we just cannot accept its attempt to take credit of the former government’s programmes,” reiterated the Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) spokesperson.
“The BJP has created confusion to the people of the state with regard to its development efforts. We found that the government has been inaugurating development schemes earlier completed by Congress,” Joykishan said.
Congress MLA N Loken Singh said the previous government had completed the 10th phase of the ongoing Pradan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) in the state. He said project report for the 11thphase of the PMGSY work was also submitted to the Centre by then Congress government.
The Nambol MLA claimed that the issues of the United Naga Council (UNC) and Churachandpur district could plague the BJP government again in the coming two-three months because of political agenda.
Party MLA K Ranjit said that he wished the BJP government would not become a “paper tiger.” The Sugnoo MLA and MPCC spokesperson however, hailed the BJP for its efforts in sorting out several issues and termed it a remarkable accomplishment.
