IMPHAL: The Manipur Legislative Assembly on Thursday passed the Lokayukta Bill 2011.

Chief Minister O Ibobi Singh moved the Manipur Lokayukta Bill 2011. Opposition Leader Radhabinod Koijam and opposition members O Joy, R K Anand, Dr Ibohalbi appealed to the House to consider full discussions on the matter, however, Mr Singh pressed for quick decision on the matter.

Mr O Joy said,”the Lokayukta can not initiate investigation against the Chief Minister without approval of the Assembly. For this two third majority is required and such pre-requisite will be hard to be achieved.”

The Chief Minister has to take the decision regarding probe against a minister. In spite of the opposition, the matter was taken up and pased by the House passed. A branch of NPF was opened in Manipur and Manipur government informed the EC that as per constitution of the NPF, it shall be constituted by the state of Nagaland with 60 Assembly constituencies.

Mr Singh said the opening of NPF in Manipur appears to be ‘violation of the Constitution of the NPF.’ (UNI)
