BJP national spokesperson Prakash Javedkar raised the issue during zero hour of Parliament around 12; 30 pm.

He informed that the party’s vice president Najma Heptullah, who was in Manipur on a three-day visit, was attacked by Congress workers.

They threatened the lives of Heptullah and her supporters during a public meeting at Thoubal, the home constituency of Chief Minister Ibobi.

Javedkar, who was backed by party’s leader Alluwalia, strongly demanded imposition of President’s Rule in Manipur.

He urged the house to initiate a CBI inquiry into the incident so that a free and fair poll could be conducted in the State, Shantikumar added. CBI enquiry and a report is awaited.
