Initiate legal action against BJYM members: Mnp Congress

Correspondent

Opposition Congress member K Ranjit urged Manipur chief minister to check the excessive and illegal activities of members of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), on Friday on the floor of the house of state Assembly during the ongoing monsoon session.
If BJYM members were set free to do such excessive things, Congress workers may cross their tolerable limit and it may trigger a war like situation between the workers of the two parties, he cautioned the chief minister during the zero hour of today’s sitting.
On Thursday, a group of BJYM Manipur Pradesh members led by its president Barish Sharma held a violent protest at the gate of the MPCC office in the heart of the capital city. While torching the effigy of Sonia Gandhi at the gate, they also threatened security guards of the MPCC office at the gate with sticks and shouted various slogans against the Congress.
The protest was related to a recent derogatory remark of Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on President Droupadi Murmu.
The Congress member accused the BJYM members of using unparliamentary words against the Congress party and its leaders during the protest.
He said that any form of peaceful protest is allowed in democracy. However, violent protests like yesterday’s were unwarranted.
Their activities were illegal and against the rule of law. It was not the first time. Earlier, BJYM members attacked the MPCC office in January last.
They were doing so taking undue advantage of their parent party (BJP) in power. If they are allowed to do whatever they wished, it would bring no good, he observed and drew the attention of chief minister N Biren Singh who is not only the leader of the house but also in-charge of home portfolio.
The state government must show that there is rule of law by initiating legal action against them (BJYM) members, Ranjit demanded.
Earlier, MPCC had also lodged a complaint with the City police station in connection with the violent protest at MPCC office.
After lodging the complaint, MPCC leaders warned to knock at the door of court of law if no action is initiated against the BJYM members involved in the violent protest within 24 hours.
