Imphal: Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh who filed his nomination paper today said that the election manifesto for the BJP is nearing completion and will be released on a convenient day.
“In our manifesto, we will not make promises which will not be able to translate into action,” he said, while saying that there are lots of promises which will not be able to translate into action in a manifesto released by a political on Friday.
The chief minister seemed to be referring to the Congress manifesto released on Friday evening. In the manifesto of the Congress, the party set 11 goals while making 37 pledges.
“We will not bluff the people. We will make no promises that cannot be converted into reality”, Biren said.
He also said that the BJP will give main emphasis on the employment of youths, empowering of social sectors, improving and setting up of higher education sector, modernization of the sports infrastructures, agriculture and horticulture among others.

“BJP will secure more than 40 seats. Most of the sitting MLAs will get re-elected,” he added.
Meanwhile, the chief minister appealed to the people to shun violence during the election campaign.
Biren Singh said that he was unhappy with the clashes among the workers of rival candidates reported almost every day.
“Let’s make the election a peaceful, free and fair one. Let the voters be allowed to elect the candidates of their choice fearlessly”, he added.
