By Our Staff Reporter
IMPHAL, Jul 9 : LJP Manipur has warned that defamation suit will be filed against Khurai AC MLA L Sushindro and the JAC, allegedly backed by him, if they continue to spread false rumours or blame CAF&PD Minister Karam Shyam.
Speaking to media persons at LJP Manipur office in Babupara, spokesperson of the party Ningombam Ibohal Meitei  has conveyed that blaming the Minister before investigating the issue of non-distribution of five month rice to the people of Khurai AC at a subsidised rate, is rather unfortunate and added that LJP is completely against the blame made to the Minister.
Notably, a bomb blast recently occurred near the residence of the MLA and a JAC was formed following the incident.
He denounced that several baseless rumours were allegedly made by the said JAC against the Minister even demanding Karam Shyam's resignation. He further questioned why such baseless allegations were made against the Minister on the non-distribution of rice quota without finding out the truth.
Appealing to the MLA and the JAC to take back its rumours and find out the truth first, he warned that defamation case will be filed against the MLA and the JAC if they continue to make notorious allegations against Karam Shyam.
A committee was formed under the directive of the Minister  and investigation is underway on the issue of non distribution of the rice quota, Ibohal informed.
