Imphal, January 27 2022: Following the announcement made by Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) on Thursday to not to field any party candidate in Khurai assembly constituency in the 12th Manipur Legislative Assembly Election, the intending candidate of Congress Khuraijam Ratankumar has declared immediate dissolution of Khurai Block Congress Committee (KBCC) and his intention to join another national party.
Addressing a press meet held at his residence at Kangla Sangomsang in the presence of KBCC presi-dent Kumabam Sanajaoba on Thursday evening, Kh Ratankumar stated that he was taken back by the sudden announcement made by MPCC president on Thursday to not to field a Congress candidate, but instead extend support the CPI candidate with the for-mation of an alliance with CPI.After confirming the report, he has sent his resig-nation from the primary membership of Congress as well as from the post of MPCC secretary to the president, he added.
Kh Ratankumar continued that it is very unfortunate that his seven-eight years of work for the party in the Khurai AC was over-looked during the decision making of MPCC.
But, seeing the support extended by his workers who are asking not to brush aside his past endeavours, he has decided to contest the upcoming election from another party, he announced.
Confiding that other national parties have approached him, Ratankumar informed that the final decision to join which party will be declared after consulting with his workers on Fri-day.
Though he still loves the Congress and will keep the party’s flag safely, he is hurt by the conspiracy hatched against him by some people, he said and opined that Congress will remain ineffective for some time.
KBCC president K Sanajaoba also conveyed that after a lot of hard work Congress was getting stronger in the constituency with a candidate ready to contest the election.
But the decision of some office sitters has ruined the prospects of the party in the AC which is very heart-breaking.
Considering this, it has been decided to dissolve the KBCC immediately, he further proclaimed.
