While attending the flag hoisting ceremony of BJP candidate Yamthong Haokip in Saikul constituency of Kangpokpi district, CM Biren Singh urged the people to come out and vote without any fear. Haokip is a former Congress MLA and had switched his party allegiance to the BJP along with RK Imo Singh, another Congress leader, in November last year in Delhi.

Taking to his Twitter handle, Singh said “I had the opportunity to address the people of Saikul constituency today and highlighted some of the major achievements of the BJP-led Govt in Manipur, especially in the hill districts.”

The government of India will not remain silent on any form of intimidation by militant groups to suppress the electoral process, added the chief minister.

On Tuesday, the National People’s Party (NPP) had alleged that several militant groups in Manipur are openly campaigning for the BJP and Naga People’s Front (NPF) for the upcoming state elections, and urged the authorities to put all underground groups under Suspension of Operation (SoO) agreement and seize all arms from them for a free and fair election.

The NPP had also demanded adequate security cover for its candidates in the ensuing February 27 and March 3 election.
