MPP's internal feud
IMPHAL, Sep 22 : The Manipur People's Party (MPP) working president (organisation) Ningombam Ojit has said that a group of people trying to depict the party in a bad light was disappointing.
Briefing the media at its office near Mapal Kangjeibung today, N Ojit continued that Ch Sanjoy was appointed as the president of MPP on April 16, 2022 after holding an election as per the directive of the High Court of Manipur.
"Under the leadership of Sanjoy, MPP has been striving to regain its strength and become an active political party," he said and claimed that a group of people under the leadership of Y Priyokumar who identified himself as a member of the MPP central committee have been trying to mislead the people and depict the MPP in a bad light.
He further said that the statement given by Y Priyokumar on matters pertaining to convening of a requisition meeting was all false and unfounded.
Saying that a meeting of MPP central committee was held on June 23 last at its office after informing all its members in advance through the media and posting the schedule of the meeting on its notice board, Ojit asked under whose authority is Priyokumar going to convene another meeting to take actions against the party president on October 20.
"It is very disappointing that some people from outside have been constantly trying to tarnish the image of MPP," he said and appealed to the people to not believe any words on matters pertaining to MPP by the group.
Y Priyokumar accusing the office bearers of MPP of misappropriating the party fund was also a false narrative, he said and added that MPP has all the documents for utilisation of its funds and people who want to verify it can come to the party office.
