Silchar, Nov 19: Bishnupriya Manipuri organizations at a joint meeting held under the presidentship of Subal Sinha, former chairman of Bishnupriya Manipuri Ganasangram Parishad on Thursday took serious exception to the allegations of Amar Sinha against Gopidas Sinha, former executive member of Bishnupriya Manipuri Development Council, accusing the latter of fraud and cheating some members of the community in the name of giving appointment for the post of Bishnupriya Manipuri language teachers.

A complaint in this regard was submitted to the Inspector General of Police, Criminal Investigation Department, Ulubari, Guwahati, which was sent back to the DSP, headquarters here for further inquiry and punitive measures, if called for.

The matter was published in The Sentinel issue of November 12 on the basis of the written submission of Amar Sinha supported by relevant documents. The meeting of the Bishnupriya Manipuri organizations taking serious exception to the report condemned it as a designed and malicious move to tarnish the image of Gopidas Sinha whom they described as an important social worker dedicated to the services of the community for the last 35 years. The organizations dubbed the allegations as false and fabricated and an attempt to protect his personal interests.

Earlier also, the organizations said such false allegations were brought by Amar Sinha and his cohorts to defame Dr. Debendra Kumar Sinha, president of the Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Mahasabha, and 15 other social activists. The leaders of the organizations called it a sort of ‘social terrorism’ in order to foment conflict among the members of the community and also misunderstanding between different organizations. It was urged upon the home department of the Chief Minister to investigate the background of the persons engaged in malicious propaganda against social activists. After due scrutiny of all the papers placed by Gopidas Sinha, the joint meeting found nothing wrong against him.

The complainants Amar Sinha and his wife Nanda Sinha long with others were rather found to be on the wrong side and it was not clear why they should have unfair design against an established social worker like Gopidas Sinha. Considering the seriousness of the entire episode, the joint meeting attended by Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Students’ Union, Bishnupriya Manipuri Ganasangram Parishad, Bishnupriya Manipuri Women Organization, Bishnupriya Manipuri Ex-Servicemen Association and Bishnupriya Manipuri Language Teaching-Training Diploma Holders’ Association unanimously decided to hold an extended meeting on December 4 to call both the complainants to examine their grievances. Both the complainants, Amar Sinha and Gopidas Sinha were advised to attend the meeting in the greater interest of the community.
