Manipur: BJP government has made Manipur India’s export gateway: PM | India News


IMPHAL: Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah spoke at separate campaign rallies in Thubal, the home district of Congress strongman and former Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh on Tuesday, days before the second phase of Assembly elections in Manipur.
Of Thoubal’s six seats, three are represented by Congress.
As Modi addressed a virtual campaign rally at Khangabok headquarters, Shah flew to Manipur and addressed a massive party meeting in Heirok constituency.
Khangabok is represented by the son of Ibobi MP Okram Surjakumar Singh, who is also the party’s candidate. Khangabok borders Ibobi territory, Thoubal.
The second phase, covering 22 assembly seats in 10 districts, including Thoubal, will be held on Saturday.
Addressing the virtual rally, Modi accused the Congress of failing to undertake major development programs and said the BJP would once again form the government in Manipur. “With the arrival of the BJP-led government in Manipur, the state has become the country’s gateway for exports and global trade,” Modi said.
Addressing the Heirok gathering, Shah said he feels peace in his heart whenever he visits Manipur. He pledged to solve the problem of insurgency in the state if the BJP comes to power.
