Unemployed Youth Association for dissolution of Bishnupriya Manipuri Development Council

From our Special Correspondent

SILCHAR, July 1: Bishnupriya Manipuri Unemployed Youth Association based here has demanded dissolution of the committee of Bishnupriya Manipuri Development Council and its reconstitution with 25 members to be nominated afresh by the people of the community. In a memorandum addressed to the Chief Minister of Assam, Tarun Gogoi, with a copy to the Deputy Commissioners of Cachar, Karimganj, Hailakandi and Kamrup (metro), the Association has stated that through an RTI, it has come to know that the development council was instructed by the department concerned to distribute auto rickshaws to unemployed youths of the community. But, the beneficiaries were from ex servicemen and affluent families and the unemployed youths were deprived.

The Association took up the cases of these neglected and deprived youths several times with the department concerned and also through representations, but nothing tangible happened. It was alleged that the committee collected lakhs of rupees from the beneficiaries to provide them auto rickshaws. According to their information, each beneficiary was made to pay Rs 30,000 to 40,000 as commission. The Association demanded an inquiry into it by the vigilance cell of the Chief Minister.

Even in the distribution of sewing machines, the beneficiaries again were rich families, sidetracking the unemployed youths for their self employment. Specific instances have been cited by the Association. Runu Sinha, wife of lecturer of Maibong College, and Purna Lakshmi Sinha, wife of a bank employee, got the benefit of sewing machines, depriving the unemployed women. With regard to the distribution of financial assistance to clubs and self help groups, it has been further alleged that fake names of such clubs and SHGs have figured on the list and each of them received the financial help to the tune of Rs 8.24 lakh.

In view of these anomalies and irregularities, Bishnupriya Manipuri Unemployed Youth Association has demanded closure of the office of the Bishnupriya Manipuri Development Council and its reconstitution with new members elected by the people of the community. While the Chief Minister of Assam has been urged upon to conduct through investigation into the allegations levelled against the Council and the Deputy Commissioners of the the areas concerned have been impressed upon to take action against the members of the community for their alleged corrupt practices and issue necessary proclamation to close down the office of the Council. A note of caution has been given. If the demands are not responded positively, the Association will be left with no option than to take resort to agitional course of action.

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
