Imphal, June 11 2010: Nationalist Congress Party Manipur State Unit celebrated the 12th foundation day of the party at its office at Thangmeiband yesterday.

Speaking at the occasion, Opposition leader and party MLA Radhabinod Koijam said that it was strange that seven Naga MLAs submitted their resignation papers on the issue of NSCN (IM) General Secretary Th Muivah's proposed visit.

Maintaining that all the communities have to maintain harmony in order to protect the territorial integrity of Manipur, the Opposition leader promised that NCP would try its best to protect the wholeness of the State.

Radhabinod said that even though Central Government has asked Th Muivah not to enter Manipur, the Centre has not taken up any concrete step to bar Muivah from entering Manipur.

Saying that ADC Bill has been enacted as an Act after thorough discussion in the State Assembly, he asked the agitators why they did not raise question when the issue was repeatedly discussed by Hill Areas Committee.

Maintaining that the stand of NSCN (IM) is not right, Radhabinod alleged that there is also still an ambiguity with the stand of the SPF Government regarding the issue.

Saying that the ongoing fast unto death campaign of MPP is in favour people's interest, he pledged support with the agitation of MPP.

Radhabinod also said that people must support the campaign to make it successful.
