BMUYA raises questions against activities of BMDC



From our Correspondent
SILCHAR, June 24: The members of the Bishnupriya Manipuri Unemployed Youth Association (BMUYA) raised questions on the activities of the Bishnupriya Manipuri Development Council (BMDC), as they alleged that the funds allocated for the unemployed youths of Bishnupriya Manipuri in 2010-11 were not utilized properly.

Gopesh Sinha, president of Bishnupriya Manipuri Unemployed Youth Association, said that the Council had recently distributed 62 auto-rickshaws in the name of unemployed youths in which large irregularities were found as those who received the vehicle maximum of them are employed.

He added to say that the Committee received a huge sum in return to the distribution of auto-rickshaws to rich and well settled families. He pointed that the BMDC had taken a sum of Rs 30,000 from a youth of Karimganj, Rs 30000 from one of Nityanagar village of Hailakandi district and from another who live in Kachudaram area of Cachar, but they are yet to get their vehicles.

 According to him, the BMDC also looted the money in the scheme of distributing sewing machines to the unemployed ladies. He further raised the question that how Ranu Sinha, wife of a college teacher and Pramila Rani Sinha, who is the wife of a bank employee, received the machines.

Gopidas Sinha, members of All Assam Linguistic Minority Development Board, said that he would launch a movement against the misdeed of BMDC. He pointed out, “The numbers of unemployed youth are rising day by day, and subsequently the government has also initiated scores of schemes. But the way the BMDC has betrayed the poor unemployed youths, is very shameful and I will not tolerate this.” He further advised the members of Bishnupriya Manipuri Unemployed Youth Association to launch a mass agitation against the BMDC. He further assured his presence in the ensuing activities of the association.

However, in order to launch the movement against the betrayal, a new organization ‘Bishnupriya Manipuri Unemployed Youth Association’ was formed recently.

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
