Communist Party of India (CPI), Manipur state council on Monday demanded amendment of Indian Constitution for federal polity in the country. The state CPI asserted that the constitution is more unitary in nature and felt the need to amend it.
Addressing a press conference on Monday at Imphal, CPI Manipur state secretary Langol Iboyaima demanded reformation of economic policy so that each state in the country could stand on its own. “Manipur state which is backward in every fields should be kept in the ‘Special Status’ category state so that her economy, social status could be improved” Langol stated.
The demand is one of the five-point political resolutions passed in the three-day 20th conference of CPI, Manipur Council which concluded on Sunday in the presence of central party leaders.
Asserting that Manipur is a state having the second highest number of pending cases in northeastern region, the first being Assam, the conference also decided to urge the Centre to set up a separate high court for the state at the earliest.
The conference also resolved that Centre should set up Highway Protection Force without delay and also to hand over the maintenance work of NH-53 (now NH-37) to state PWD.
Former minister, M Nara Singh who has been elected as new state CPI state council secretary justified that CPI inclusion as partner of Congress led SPF government has ended the era of one party rule. He felt that a strong coalition government is a must for solving problems in Manipur.
