Imphal, July 26: Character and integrity of Chief Minister O Ibobi Singh will be known on the basis of his decision following the pressure exerted by ANSAM to revoke the June 18 declaration, said president of State unit's Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) W Nipamacha Singh.

Interacting with media-persons at the Babupara office premise of RJD today, the former Chief Minister asserted that O Ibobi should take moral responsibility for putting the people under duress adding that in case the CM retracts from his earlier decision, he shouild resign.

Also expressing strong objection to ANSAM dictating terms of talks venue and asking to CM to negotiate with ANSAM only at the State capital, nipamacha demanded that every effort should be made to ensure adequate availability of food-stock.

Recalling documented history of Manipur's existence and undisputable boundary demarcation since merger with India in 1949 Nipamacha asserted that for the sake of Naga integration Manipur's territorial should not be compromised.

It would be more appropriate if person/s advocating naga Integration cause settle in Nagaland like patriotic zeal exhibited by Indian-born Pakistani President pervez Musharraf for the people of pakistan and LK Advani committed to India's cause despite being born in Pakistan soil, explained Nipamacha.

Coming down heavily on Rajya Sabha MP Rishang Keishing, the former CM said political experiences gained by Rishang Keishing are being fully utilised today by humming �Hamara Bharat� at Delhi, playing �hill-valley brotherhood' tune at imphal and relying on �Naga Integration' chorus in the hill districts.

Reacting to MP Mani Charenamei's conduct W Nipamacha reminded the Naga leader that substantial kuki and voters of valley areas had contributed in showing the parliament door to the MP.

RJD MLA S Natum, vice president Chungsei Haokip and General Secretary Ngursanglur, who also shared their views during the press briefing strongly advocated upholding unity of manipur at any cost and called upon politicians to divert their energy in developmental matter.
