The Voice of the People Party (VPP) has decided to hold two public meetings in the city to create awareness about its demands regarding the Lokayukta issue.
The first public meeting will be held tomorrow at Mawlai Nongkwar (Petrol Pump) at 6 pm. It will be followed by another meeting on January 25 at YMCA point, Mawkhar.
VPP spokesperson Batskhem Myrboh said that his party wanted the MDA government to stop interfering in the functioning of the Lokayukta and to reinstate the services of the three officers who were “illegally and unceremoniously removed by the government with an objective to stall the ongoing investigation into the corruption cases presently being handled by the Lokayukta.”
Urging the public to attend the meetings, Myrboh said that “conscious and socially active citizens are the assets to the State”.
