UNC alleges SHDDC of coercion [Hueiyen Lanpao]

Imphal, October 25: The United Naga Council (UNC) alleged that supporters of the Sadar Hills District Demand Committee (SHDDC) are forcing educational institutions, Naga villages and other non Kuki villages in Sadar Hills and Saitu sub-division to participate in rallies, economic blockade and other programme for demanding Sadar Hills district against their wishes and desires.
“It has therefore become necessary to advise the concerned individuals/organizations to desist from such acts of coercion which has no place in democracy. Such unacceptable acts would only create greater rift on communal lines. We also strongly urge the targeted institutions and villages to be vigilant and to firmly oppose such forcible impositions and refrain from participating in any such communally designed programmes, UNC said.
It then stated that while condemning “the short sighted and selfish actions” of some sections under Chingai and Phaibung District Council Constituency which  was engineered to dampen the people’s movement for securing an alternative arrangement for the Nagas in Manipur, the United Naga Council would like to acknowledge those villagers  in two constituencies who had  heeded to the call of the Naga people under the aegis of the United Naga Council and abstained from the election process that has been declared ” null and void” on July 1, 2010 Naga People’s Convention. “Their resolute stand in upholding the peoples’ decision  in spite of the use of money power and muscle power and their resistance to the forcible imposition of the ADC  by election has been most  laudable and inspiring,” the UNC stated.

Just 19 days work since the inception of MGNREGS to Keirao Makting locals [Hueiyen Lanpao]

Maisnam Karnajit


Imphal, October 25:
In what could be term as a total failure of MGNREGS in the state, the MGNREGS job card holders of Keirao constituency has been deprived of their rightful work with only 19 days work given to their credit since the inception of the scheme in the state.

Inspite of the MGNREGS act providing for 100 days work to the rural poor of India, the job card holders of Keirao Makting gram panchayat, ward number 7, which coincidentally happens to be under the assembly constituency of Rural Development and Panchayati Raj Minister, Md Allaudin Khan, have been given only 19 days work, since its inception.

The fact came to light when this reporter met with the job card holders of Keirao Makting recently. Md Hafajuddin, a job card holder, who is also the General Secretary of Universal Progressive Welfare Association, Urup Khunnou said that with the inception of NREGS in the year 2008, residents of Keirao Makting gram panchayat under Pradhan Rajima and member Mohamud Anwar of Keirao Makting gram panchayat of ward number 7, were given work for 19 days. After that no people of this constituency were ever given any work further. As such their right to work for 100 days in a year has been deprived. Above this, the workers are never given their bank passbooks and job cards although all requirements for the same have been already fulfilled.

He further went on to say that since the Pradhan and the member of the gram panchayat have deprived them of their works; there are also apprehensions that the duo might have misused their rightful wages and also the unemployment allowances.

In relation with the incident, the workers of Keirao have approached the Block Development Officer, Imphal West II, Keirao Bitra and Panchayat Secretary to highlight the workers muster roll and their work register, but it was flatly denied. As such the workers will be filling a complaint to the Ombudsman, MGNREGS, Imphal East very soon, he said.

It may be rightly mentioned that 100 days work is being provided to every job card holder under the MGNREGS. If in case, work cannot be provided to them then they should be receiving non employment allowance for the number of days not worked.
