Police have arrested Manipur Congress spokesperson Advocate Sanaojam Shyamacharan Singh on the charge of using derogatory words against Union Home Minister Amit Shah during a TV discussion program.

The Congress spokesperson was reportedly arrested by a team of Imphal Police Station on Tuesday midnight at about 1 AM based on a complaint lodged with the police station by Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) Manipur Pradesh President M Barish Sharma for taking up against the Congress spokesperson in connection with his derogatory words used against the Union Home Minister during a TV discussion program on Impact TV broadcasted on April 9. Imphal Police Station transferred the case to City Police Station as the place of occurrence falls under the jurisdiction of the City PS.

Advocate Sanaojam Samachoron has been slapped with FIR No.0(4) 2022 IPS u/s 124A/295A/505 IPC (sedition, deliberate malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings or any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs, making statements conducing to public mischief).

The TV discussion on the topic ‘Hindi: Unification or Imposition Debate’ was participated by State BJP spokesperson Soubam Nongpoknganba Meitei, IPSA Vice-President Khuraijam Athouba and MPCC spokesperson Sanoujam Shyamacharan with Impact TV executive editor Raj Nongthombam as the anchor.

BJYM President M Barish Sharma in his complaint alleged that the Congress spokesperson, during the Impact TV panel discussion aired on April 9 not only abused the mainland Indians but also used foul and derogatory language against Union Home Minister Amit Shah. He deliberately and maliciously humiliated and belittled the Hindus of mainland India by even terming them as animal, apart from using derogatory language, thereby hurting the racial and religious feelings of the entire India which amounts to sedition despite the other panellists restraining him not to do so.

The very act of the Congress spokesperson is deliberate and malicious which bring into hatred, contempt and excites the innocent public against the Government established by law and intended to outrage religious feelings of religious belief of Hindus of mainland India including Manipuri Hindus, the BJYM President stated, demanding the police to investigate into the matter by booking and arresting the accused and punishing him as per law of the land.

Meanwhile, BJP Manipur Pradesh President A Sharda Devi has strongly condemned the Congress spokesperson for his alleged derogatory remarks against Union Home Minister Amit Shah.

The statement made by the Congress spokesperson sounds like a strong sense of racism. The grand old party is gradually declining in the country because of its racism and failure in how to speak and behave towards the Indians. The BJP is such a party that always advocates for mutual respect among the mankind and the communities, Sharda said while briefing reporters at Thambal Shanglen on Monday.

Replying to a media query on imposition of Hindi in the Northeast States, the State BJP President said that even as the Union Home Minister made a statement with regard to making Hindi as A compulsory subject up to Class 10 in schools in the Northeast, the Centre has not given any directive to the State Government to implement it till date.

Even if the Centre happens to give a directive, party leaders in the State will discuss the matter thoroughly and consult with all the concerned stakeholders. BJP Manipur Pradesh will always work in the interest of the State, Sharda said.
