Biren ridicules MPP for alleging govt would compromise territorial integrity


IMPHAL, Dec 5: The SPF Government regretted what it called the unprincipled act of the president of a political party for creating misunderstanding in the media against the tripartite talk held at Senapati between the GOI, the state Government and representatives of Naga capex bodies, said YAS, IFCD minister and spokesperson of the SPF, N. Biren Singh.
