IMPHAL, Dec 3: Leaders of BJP Manipur Pradesh have been reportedly contemplating legal action against Kangleipakki Meira Editor W Shamjai for allegedly making derogatory remarks against the party’s general secretary (Administration) S Saratkumar and spokesman RK Shivchandra during a panel discussion programme of ISTV network about VIP culture on November 24.
Speaking to media persons at their Nityaipat Chuthek office today, K Saratkumar and RK Shivchandra said that W Shamjai referred to K Saratkumar as kwak (crow) Sarat during the panel discussion programme.
“The remark was defamatory and we condemn it”, they said.
They said that VIPs have their own protocol and allocation of security escorts to a man or woman is done by the Home Department after examining the degree of threats perceived.
None of the participants of the panel discussion programme are the authority to allocate security escorts.
“However if security escorts allocated to us are withdrawn on account of W Shamjai’s remarks, he should be held responsible for any untoward incident that might happen to us”, Saratkumar and Shivchandra said.
