‘Dr Sinha has no moral right to hold NBMM chief post’

By our Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, June 20: In their sharp reaction to the news item published on the June 11, 2011 issue of The Sentinel under the headline “Sahitya Parishad pooh-poohs Singha Gautam”, Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Sahitya Parishad (NBMSP) secretary Hareswar Sinha Manab and Bishnupriya Manipuri Suraksha Samiti (BMSS) secretary Rajkumar Sinha squarely questioned the extent of knowledge of NBMSP’s Assam State committee vice-president Raja Parag Jyoti Sinha (Shimu) about the power of “mass convention”. They also said that Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Mahasabha (NBMM) president Dr Debendra Kumar Sinha had no moral right to hold the top NBMM post.

Shimu had gone on record saying that “every individual has the right to form/float an organization with like-minded people, but that doesn’t entitle him/her to make irresponsible comments like stripping of the power of the duly elected president of the Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Mahasabha (NBMM), Dr Debendra Kumar Sinha”. Terming Singha Gautam’s outburst as “histrionic’, Shimu had said that the statement made by Singha Gautam “has been an appalling one for the Bishnupriya Manipuri community. The content of the writing, it appears, is penned out of sheer frustration by Singha Gautam.”.

In their reaction, Sinha Manab and Rajkumar Sinha said: “Raja Parag Jyoti (Shimu) is ignorant of the power of mass convention.” They reminded Shimu that the electoral college that had elected Dr Debendra Sinha as the NBMM president comprised the primary members of the Mahasabha. They also held Shimu of being “ungrateful” about the creation of the Bishnupriya Manipuri Development Council (BMDC) and that he was blindly supporting NBMM president Dr Debendra Sinha “without knowing the conspiracy” he had hatched during past three adhivesans (conventions). “Not only that, violating the social decorum, Dr Sinha wants to establish his despotism and monopoly in the society,” they said, and added that Dr Sinha had not been able to construct an office of the NBMM in his consecutive terms. “He and his followers failed to publish the report, circulate the lists of executive committee of the last session and the latest amended copy of the NBMM constitution.”

“Perhaps, Shimu is not aware of the fact that the deliberations of the recent Bishnupriya Manipuri Suraksha Samiti (BMSS) mass convention at Patharkandi in Karimganj district were highlighted by BMSS president Anil Singha Gautam so as to prevent Dr Sinha from putting hurdles in the BMDC affairs and progress of the Bishnupriya Manipuri community. “Till today, none of the primary members of the Mahasabha knows the rules and regulations of the NBMM constitution. So, Dr Sinha has no moral right to occupy the chair of the NBMM... Shimu has no base, and he is unknown to most of the primary members of the Mahasabha,” they said.
