    Congress leaders meet EC, seek free and fair election in Manipur

    Alleging that militant outfits are intimidating voters and influencing the ongoing assembly polls in Manipur, the Congress on Friday urged the Election Commission to maintain a level-playing field and ensure free and fair polling exercise. A Congress delegation met the commission and also raised the issue of the BJP-led state government releasing funds to militant groups under the suspension of operation agreement, despite the model code of conduct being in force. The party said that these issues have "far-reaching consequences" for the conduct of free and fair elections. The delegation of All India Congress Committee (AICC) senior observer for Manipur Jairam Ramesh and party leader Salman Khurshid met the chief election commissioner and two election commissioners. The Congress apprised them of "the BJP's 'goondagardi' tactics that have made a mockery of the phase-1 polls in Manipur. We urged them to intervene to ensure free and fair polls in phase two tomorrow," Ramesh said after the meeting. "What kind of democracy is this? I feel in Manipur, for the BJP it is not Manipur but 'money-pur'," he said, citing the release on bail of the murder accused brother of a BJP MLA on the day the home minister went to the state. The Congress raised the issue of release of funds- Rs 15.70 crore on February 1 and Rs 92.65 lakh on March 1- to banned militant groups by the state government, according to a memorandum submitted by it.
