Ms Mamata Banerjee to campaign for Trinamool in Manipur
Manipur, January 25: Trinamool Chairperson and West Bengal Chief Minister Ms. Mamata Banerjee would campaign for party candidates in Manipur. She would address a meeting in Imphal on January 25
UPA ally Trinamool Congress which takes on the ruling Congress in Manipur for the January 28 assembly polls there on Tuesday slammed the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSA) in the state saying the party would raise it in parliament, if necessary.
He said that Trinamool Congress which has a lone member in the outgoing assembly would contest in 48 of the 60 seats in Manipur.
“We are confident that Trinamool will do well in the polls. The Trinamool Congress wants that there should be a pro-people and transparent government in Manipur,” Roy, the Union Minister of State for Shipping, said.
State Trinamool Chief Kim Gangte calls out for ‘paribartan’ (change) and deliverance from the “long, dark years under this corrupt government”, just like Ms. Mamata Banerjee did in Bengal.
