He also condemned the quit notice served to Meiteis by Naga Crusaders.
It would be in the best interest of all concerned to stop conspiring for devastation of the whole State as if there is conflict between the hill people and plain people who have been living together for centuries, he stated.
It would be best appreciated if the Naga and Kuki armed groups as well as those operating in the valley concentrate on seeking ways and means to strengthen mutual love and cordiality among different communities.
Conflict and confrontation are manifestation of shunning development and progress, he asserted.
If one has to name the oldest and biggest political party in the country, it is obviously Congress, the seasoned politician claimed.
He went on to claim that the same party has been safeguarding the integrity of both India and Manipur.
Being a big party, there may be tainted individuals/politicians within the party. Such tainted individuals should be expelled from the party and strengthen the party.
Those serving the people should understand that development and prosperity of the society would secure their own welfare, he asserted.

MPCC vice-president and president of the Vidyalaya Sagolsem Achouba said that he would put in his best efforts to establish a college for the Vidyalaya.
