Imphal: On the eve of Manipur Assembly Election, Governor Najima Heptullah has appealed to all the citizens of the state to exercise their "democratic right in a free and fair manner and without fear as it is the very essence of our democratic system."
"The General Elections to the 11th Manipur Legislative Assembly will be held in two phases on 4 March and 8 March respectively. India is a big democratic country and every citizen of this great country has the right to vote and elect his own leader. This right of franchise is enshrined in the Indian Constitution and it is a precious tool in the hands of the people through which they can decide their own fate for the next five years. Every citizen should feel proud of this right," the Governor said in a statement.
The Governor also appealed to all concerned, particularly to those picketing the Government offices in the Naga dominated areas in the hill districts to avoid any kind of violent activities or obstruction to enable holding a free and fair election. "Everybody should contribute for a smooth and peaceful democratic process and no citizen should be deprived of his democratic right," he said.
