Imphal, January 21: Fielding those individuals who have already been rejected by the people because of their corrupt nature as candidates by the political parties would not help in bringing good governance in Manipur, vice president of NCP State unit N Radhakanta has stated.

Addressing a press conference at his Uripok Ningthoukhongjam Leikai residence today, Radhakanta who is also the spokesperson of the party said although all the political parties expressed their commitment to bringing about a good governance, they are selecting those individuals who have already been rejected by the people because of their corrupt nature as official candidates to contest in the election.

So the commitment of the such political parties on a good governance is doubtful, he said.

It should be the responsibility of the people to teach a lesson to such corrupt individuals in the upcoming election, he exhorted.

Radhakanta, who would be contesting in the election from Uripok Assembly Constituency as NCP candidate further said the people of Manipur today want peace and development.

But the leaders of various political parties seem to not understand this point.

The manner in which they are attacking each other and the political rhetoric made in public meetings give the impression that they care nothing for the unity and integrity of Manipur, he alleged.

Leaders of the regional political party based at Imphal have been saying whatever they like to evoke the sentiments of the people without thinking about the future of Manipur.

Such political rhetoric would only led to further disintegration of Manipur, he said, adding that foundation of a new resurgent Manipur cannot be laid by trying to mislead the people and tarnishing th image of the national parties.

Radhakanta expressed surprise that the Congress and the MPP have fielded those persons who have been involved in the scandal related to implementation of Mid-Day Meal scheme in Uripok as well as those responsible for abolition of the Food Processing factory as their candidates for the upcoming election.

So whether such persons should be elected or those who would work for their welfare is in their hands, he added.
