Caught in a dire dilemma over the Naga peace framework agreement with the Centre, the Manipur People’s Party (MPP) on Tuesday took on both BJP and Congress accusing them of downplaying the interest of the state.
Eating war against both the parties on Tuesday in his address at the party’s golden jubilee function in Imphal, newly elected party president Oinam Jugindro said,”MPP feels strange what the Congress and BJP have been showing to the people over the issue of territorial integrity of Manipur,”
“Their thought is something else while their action is false. MPP condemns it,” Jugindro further said.
Recently, MPP organisation plunged into uncertainty after it faced a growing tension over appointment of party president after N Sovakiran was removed from the post in May 2017, accusing him of misusing huge party fund, besides indulging in anti-party and anti-social activities.
MPP was set up in 1968 by a group of dissidents from the Indian National Congress (INC). The party ruled Manipur for two terms. In the 2007 assembly polls, the MPP secured 5 out of the 60 Assembly constituencies in Manipur.
