All India Trinamool Congress on Friday assured that it will resolve issues plaguing Manipur if its candidates were sent to the Parliament.

 AITC observer for Manipur Bishwajit Deb observed, for a small state like Manipur, there was the need to send candidates from a strong political party who can  draw the attention of the Parliament to issues arising in the state from time to time.

Hinting at AITC fielding its candidates in both the Parliamentary seats from Manipur, he said, “I, on behalf of AICC and Mamata Banerjee will ensure that candidates of AITC are elected in the ensuing Parliament elections so that Trinamool Congress can give you a better Manipur, a developed Manipur in all respect.”

The AITC leader was talking to reporters on the sideline of a ‘one-day workers conference’ of Manipur Pradesh Trinamool Congress held in Imphal on Friday.

He alleged that issues of Manipur were not focussed upon in Parliament till date citing  absence of backing from the party to the Parliamentarians they were affiliated coupled with lack of political will of the Parliamentarians from the state as the reason.

Deb added that for a small state like Manipur, there was the need for sending well-qualified representatives having affiliation with strong party so that issues of the state can be highlighted in the Parliament. Manipur is plagued with various issues which need attention of the Central government and the Parliament is the appropriate forum to draw the attention of the Central government, Deb stated, while observing the need to highlight  issues in the state arising from time to time.

He revealed how  despite its big size, issues from West Bengal were unable to reach the ear of the Central government until Trinamool Congress came to power in the state. 

It was only after the Trinamool Congress came to power in the state (West Bengal) that Centre started focussing on the state, he claimed. Deb further highlighted all-round changes that were brought about in West Bengal in the past seven years, claiming that it was possible because of AITC under the leadership of Mamata Banerjee.

The one-day workers conference held at GM Hall, Imphal was organised by Manipur Trinamool Congress with the objective of bringing together all its split workers and supporters to revive the party.

The Manipur unit of the party was very popular at the initial stage winning eight seats by securing 10% of the total votes in the 2012 state Assembly elections. The party was the only opposition party in the Manipur Legislative Assembly.
