Imphal: Accusing the Ibobi-led Congress party of working against the 'liberation movement' and the people, the Coordination Committee (CorCom) of KCP, KYKL, PREPAK, PREPAK (Pro), RPF, UNLF and UPPK has decided to ban Congress party indefinitely.

A press release issued by the committee informed that no individual should work as Congress member or supporter.

It also announced a number of prohibitions such as; "No one should contest the elections as Congress candidates", "No election camp for Congress party should be opened", "No election rally or grand feast should be organised for Congress party", "No election meeting should be organised for Congress party", "No Congress flag should be hoisted in any household", "No individuals or transport association should lend out vehicles to Congress candidates" etc.

It further warned that befitting punishment would be awarded if any one defies the prohibitions.

In line with the warning issued, a spokesman of CorCom claimed today evening that it had engineered a series of blasts across the place.

A hand grenade was lobbed and exploded at a polling camp of Congress party opened at Singjamei Mayengbam Leikai tonight.

According to a police source, a polling camp opened at the residential camp of one Sagolsem Tombi at Singjamei Mayengbam Leikai was attacked with a hand grenade at about 8.30 pm.

The polling camp was opened yesterday in support of Speaker I Hemochandra who is contesting the polls in Singjamei AC.

The camp was adorned with photographs of Chief Minister O Ibobi and Hemochandra in addition to Congress party's flags.

Except for a little damage done to a car (Santro) parked nearby, no one was injured because of the explosion.

Hemochandra came to the spot and made an enquiry.

He remarked that the grenade attack was a challenge to democracy.

Conceding there were certain security lapses, the Speaker stated that he would not like such incidents to repeat again.

On the other hand, a Congress office opened at Kwakeithel Akham Leikai was set ablaze at around 3 this morning.

The fire was, however, put off before it could cause any major damage except to the main door.

Health Minister Jayanta-kumar came to the spot and assessed the situation.

Stating that the act of arson was politically motivated, Jayantakumar appealed to all concerned not to repeat such attacks in future.

Further, one hand grenade was also hurled at the residence of a staunch Congress supporter at Thangmeiband at about 10 pm yesterday.

Details about the incident could not obtained as yet.

A spokesman of CorCom later claimed that all the bomb attacks were carried out by them.
