Lack of vote-bank mars demand of Bishnupriya Manipuri teachers


The lives of 149 Bishnupriya Manipuri teachers are in stake and they need support and encouragement from the whole community, the Government of Assam is dilly-dallying the whole issue as the community doesn’t make a vote-bank, is what oganisations supporting the hunger strike starting from June 5, 2009, said when they were contacted.

The Government of Assam is completely neglecting the plight of Bishnupriya Manipuri teachers as the community itself doesn’t fall in the vote-bank politics, said Anil Rajkumar, the President of Bishnupriya Manipuri Students Association.

Despite all procedural measures being taken for the appointment of the Bishnupriya Manipuri teachers in the last 9 years, the fate of 149 Bishnupriya Manipuri teachers are in limbo, said Samir Sinha of Bishnupriya Manipuri Gana Sangram Parishad.

To meet their demands, the 149 Bishnupriya Manipuri teachers had earlier resorted to similar strikes, but nothing came out concrete from their attempts. “But this time it is different and will be successful,” said Samir Sinha.
