Congress accuses BJP of abducting independent MLA in Manipur
The Congress on Sunday accused BJP of "playing a dangerous game of subverting democracy" and abducting an independent MLA from Manipur by misusing the CISF at Imphal airport.
"BJP is now misusing CISF and airport authorities to detain and abduct independent MLA Asabuddin at Imphal airport and take him to Calcutta (Kolkata)," Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala tweeted.
"Modi government is playing a dangerous game of subverting democracy and abducting MLAs by misusing CISF at Imphal airport despite electoral loss," he added.
Surjewala also said: "Independent MLA Asabuddin is travelling with minister Sh. Nasir (A. Nasir). Federalism and rule of law being murdered in broad daylight by Modi government."
The ruling Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party have secured 28 and 21 seats, respectively, in the hung assembly that emerged after the recent elections in Manipur.
