The secretariat of Manipur Legislative Assembly on Monday gave a local daily 24-hour time to explain its position regarding publication of “misleading” news.

In its June 9 edition, Imphal Times, an evening daily published a news item on members of the Committee on Internal Resource and Central Assistance of the Bihar Legislative Assembly enjoying “sexy dance” at border town Moreh with local girls during their study tour to Manipur last week.

The report alleged that MLA Yaduwanch Kumar Yadav of RJD, who represents Pipra (Supaul) assembly constituency and is also the chairman of the Committee, and other MLAs were caught in camera while dancing with local girls during their visit to the border town on June 1.

“Yes those MLA are caught in camera while enjoying sexy dance with teenage girls in a room in the border town on Myanmar side,” the daily reported while informing that the video clip of the event is available in Imphal Times youtube channel.

PRO of the Manipur Legislative Assembly secretariat while making a clarification on the news item published under the caption “Caught in camera, Bihar MLAs enjoy sexy dance with local girls in Indo-Myanmar border town” said that it was a “misleading” news.

Similar news were also published in some other local papers, the PRO said while denying that the persons caught in the camera were neither MLAs from Bihar or officials of Bihar Legislative Assembly who visited the state from May 31 to June 3 on official tour. “The news item is misleading and was aimed at tarnishing the image of the visiting VIPs as well as the Manipur Legislative Assembly,” the PRO stated.

It further clarified that officials of the Manipur Legislative Assembly secretariat, who accompanied the visiting committee, provided only the protocol assistance to the visiting MLAs and was not involved in any activity as was reported in the media. In the news report, it was alleged that the visiting Bihar MLAs were guided by staff of the Manipur State Legislative Assembly.
