BMFA for probe into large-scale malpractices

Special Correspondent

SILCHAR, Aug 17: Bishnupriya Manipuri Farmers’ Association (BMFA), Cachar district, has demanded inquiry into large scale malpractices involved in the selection of beneficiaries for distribution of government grant in aid provided to Bishnupriya Manipuri Development Council in a memorandum addressed to the Minister of WPT and BC, Guwahati, and submitted through the Deputy Commissioner of Cachar on Tuesday. The catalogue of allegations as detailed by the president Ranjit Sinha of the Association included the government fund to the council to take up socio-economic development works.

Besides, the memorandum alleges that under this grant in aid, beneficiaries were selected showing different schemes without making any announcement in this regard in the local media in accordance with the government guidelines. This violation of the norms deprived a large number of people belonging to below poverty line from availing themselves of the grant. The selection list, it further points out, includes persons of APL as eligible for the benefits. Considering the seriousness of the anomalies specified, the Association secretary Ajit Sinha has impressed upon the minister concerned to cause and inquiry through the Deputy Commissioners of Cachar, Karimganj, Hailakandi and Kamrup since similar irregularities have taken place in other districts under the jurisdiction of the Council.

In yet another memorandum to the Additional Deputy Commissioner, Development, Cachar, Bishnupriya Manipuri Farmers’ Association has alleged the apathy of the banks towards the disposal of kisan credit cards proposals for around 100 farmers sponsored by the district agriculture officer. The proposals have been lying without any consideration since the date of their submission with banks on August 1, 2011. The crop season is passing out, but the farmers are yet to get the kisan credit cards. The memorandum farther points out that the Government of India, RBI and NABARD have clear instructions to increase the KCC coverage to which the banks have taken a negative stand. It calls for immediate action and disposal of the credit card proposals.

       and sumitted a memorandum to Chief Minister. There is no such BMLMDC is existing in our BM society.
    2. Mr. Anil Krishna Rajkumar and Mr.Subal Sinha jointly submitted a memorandum on consensus on the formation of BMDC on the behalf of NBMSU and BMGSP respectively to DC of Cachar for the department of WPT and BC.They don't trust the gazette notified BMDC.
    3. On behalf of BMFA( Bishnupriya Manipuri Farmer Association) Mr. Ranjit/Mr.
        Ajit Sinha want probe in to large scale malpractices for which the submitted a
        memorandum to DC, Cachar. The name, BMFA has not been heard off.

    Too much of these BMSSPP, BMHFGYK, BMJHKGY, BMJKGFEED, BMNKGIOLP..., BMBMBM, BMNMBNH,BMDCDCDC,.. number of organisations are crossing the total population strength of the community as a whole. 

    It seems people are on a forum formation spree.. They think like .. form a group name it like BMDCPCFC.. submit a letter to the authority and Govt will reward with carton full of currencies to them.
    All the heads of these kind of forums are proven frauds and crooks except few in the parent organisations like Maha Sabha and Sahitya Sabha.

The 'Star' Krishankant Sinha of Space City Sigma

By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi It is a myth that the all-knowing Internet knows everything. One such myth relates to old television stuff aired on Doordarshan before 1990. Search in Google “Space City Sigma”, the search engine would throw up reminiscent results from the people who still long for those days. Those days were really golden days. Krishankant Sinha in the role of Captain Tara in Space City Singma For those who have watched Doordarshan some 15 to 20 years back, am sure they will have nostalgic memories of it. The days when possessing a now ubiquitous looking television set was a luxury. It was a neighbour’s envy product. It was a visual product to showoff, to flaunt that we have a television set . Those were the days when black and white, locked television was rarely found in homes. The days became immortal for teleserials like Ramayana, Mahabharata, Swami’s Malgudi Days (Ta-Na-Na-Na…), Ek-Do-Teen-Char (Title song: Ek do teen char, chaaro mil ke saath chale to

Sri Sri Bhubaneshwar Sadhu Thakur

By Ranita Sinha, Kolkata Sri Sri Bhubaneshwar Thakur, the great saint of the Bishnupriya Manipuri Community was born on 26th October, 1871, in a remote village of Cachar district called Baropua in the state of Assam. He was born to a Xatriya Manipuri family. His father Sri Sanatan Pandit was a Sanskrit teacher and mother Srimati Malati Devi, a house wife. Sadhu Baba from his childhood was indifferent to all worldly happenings. He was engrossed in chanting the name of Lord Krishna. Along with other students of his age, Sadhu Baba started taking lessons of grammar and other spiritual literature from his father. At a very young age he lost his mother but he was brought up with utmost love and care by his step mother. At the age of eighteen, Sadhu baba lost his father, so, to continue his spiritual education under the guidance of Rajpandit Mineshwas Swarbabhwam Bhattacherjee, he went to Tripura.
