NBMM hits out at Singha Gautam, says BMSS has no legal footing

By our Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, June 18: The Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Mahasabha (NBMM) lashed out at Bishnupriya Manipuri Surakha Samiti (BMSS) president Anil Singha Gautam for the latter’s statement given to the media stating that the BMSS had stripped NBMM president Dr Devendra Kumar Sinha of all powers, except convening NBMM sessions, that too, not without consulting the BMSS.

Reacting to the news item published on the June 5, 2011 issue of The Sentinel under the deadline “BMSS strips NBMM president of all powers”, NBMM general secretary Krishnadas Sinha said that the very meeting that had formed the BMSS was not legal as it had no approval of the NBMM, the constitution of which had no provision for convening any “national convention”. Since the convention had no legal footing, the BMSS formed at the convention and the resolutions taken thereof were totally “void ab initio”, Sinha said, and added: “ is also a distressing matter that there is no similarity between the report published and the actual resolutions taken at the so-called convention. In a leaflet that contains the resolutions taken at the convention there is no mention that the powers of the president of the NBMM have been stripped of. The resolutions taken speak about the activities of the NBMM president who has been requested not to interfere directly or indirectly in the affairs of the Bishnupriya Manipuri Development Council (BMDC)... Anil Singha Gautam, who had sent the report to The Sentinel, didn’t even hesitate to take to falsehood in maligning the image of NBMM president Dr Debendra Kumar Sinha purely out personal vendetta. This is reprehensible, and needs condemnation.”

Sinha further said that for anti-Mahasabha activities, Anil Singha Gautam had been suspended from the Mahasabha, and the irony was that such a “tainted person” had been made the president of the “so-called BMSS”. “A suspended person has no legal basis to say anything about the affairs of the Mahasabha. Singha Gautam is warned not to indulge in anti-Mahasabha activities in the future,” he added.

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
