Imphal, June 17 : Manipur Assembly today discussed and passed demands for grants for police amounting to Rs 941 cr, for vigilance department an amount of Rs 2.61 cr, for fire protection an amount of Rs 9.11 cr, for Jails Rs 15.29 cr for Home guards Rs 10.68 cr and for rehabilitation Rs 1.24 cr.
During the discussion opposition MLAs, Dr I Ibohalbi, Th Shyamkumar, Samuel Rison, Kh Joykishan, RK Imo, V Alexander Pao demanded major reforms to make police work efficiently. They alleged that indiscipline is growing within the police force, there is lack of expertise in framing charges.
They raised the issue of corruption, improper code of conduct, failure to investigate properly, shortage of forces. The actual need in the state is around 33, 500 police personnel and the available strength is 25,565 personnel. Dr Ibohalbi said there is no meeting point between people and police and he asked the government to make police take up works to reach out to the people. He said the ratio of police to the entire state employees is 40 percent.
Ibohalbi said Police is considered as the rulers’ brigade”, and their task seems to be protecting the ruling elite.
Dr Ibohalbi also raised a call attention regarding sale of reserved land to Assam Rifles. Th Debendra, Minister Revenue said about 160 acres of land at Chandel district was sold to Assam Rifles at Rs 60 lakhs. He said the said land is a reserved land and two officials identified as Ibohal and Ibomcha were suspended. It was also found that an Under Secretary of Tribal department identified as S Nengzhachian had also written a letter approving sale of the land. He said the government is examining if the official had written on his capacity or had taken approval from the concerned minister.
The land located near Kondong Lairembi complex, Moreh was sold to 24 Assam Rifles was a part of Yangoupokpi Lokchao Wildlife Sanctuary and was within the declared reserved forest of the Manipur government.
Devendra said that the land was a part of 184.88 square Km which the then king of Manipur declared as reserved forest area in 1946 after Manipur State Durbar adopted a resolution (No. 11) on April 3, 1946 to declare the same area as reserved forest area.
The area which was declared as reserved forest by the Manipur State Durbar was again declared a wildlife sanctuary by the Government of Manipur post Indian independence on October 2, 1991 under the Wildlife (Protection) Act 1972.
Yangoupokpi Lokchao Wildlife Sanctuary located along Indo-Myanmar
border is home to many species of wild animals including beer, wild pigs, Sambar, monkeys, Burmese peafowl etc., the opposition leader asserted and demanded government to table an action taken report on the matter.
K Sharat raised the issue of a fire that took place at Manipur State road Transport Corporation, Dimapur, Nagaland in which four quarters were gutted by fire. Kh Ratan, Minister Transport said during an enquiry it was found that those staying in the quarters were encroachers. Eviction process is going on however due to a case filed at Dimapur works all works have stopped. He said Manipur government has also cancelled a temporary arrangement to take care of the complex entrusted to two agencies as the matter was not taken up before Manipur Cabinet. Kh Ratan said the incident occured on June 5
As per the agreement with Nagaland government MSRTC complex could not be leased out which was violated by Manipur as it was leased out to two agencies , viz MS Northern enterprises and Achui Enterprises on August 1, 2007. After Manipur Chief Minister intervened Nagaland agreed to cancel allotments done to seven individuals however one of them had filed a case.
During question hour Phungzathang Tonsing, Minister Health informed that State Medical council will be formed soon. Nunghlung Victor was informed that estimated cost of 50-bedded hospital at Chandel Headquarters was revised and is expected to be completed by December 31 next year.

Bandh called to protest extortion at Dimapur

DIMAPUR, June 17 NNN : Unable to bear any longer on the rampant imposition of ‘taxations’ on the business community and also on the general public, the denizens of Dimapur, the commercial hub of Nagaland are all set to enforce bandh on June 18 from 6 am to 6 pm. The bandh has been called […]

DIMAPUR, June 17 NNN : Unable to bear any longer on the rampant imposition of ‘taxations’ on the business community and also on the general public, the denizens of Dimapur, the commercial hub of Nagaland are all set to enforce bandh on June 18 from 6 am to 6 pm.
The bandh has been called by the Action Committee Against Unabated Taxation (ACAUT), under the aegis of the Naga Council Dimapur.
Schools, colleges, shops, transport system, offices both government and private have been asked to close for the day by the ACAUT. In short, all the activities except the media, power and medical services, will come to a grinding halt tomorrow.
ACAUT wants that there should be only one tax payable to any one underground group. ACAUT also stated earlier that the ‘back-breaking’ multiple taxes on goods imposed by underground groups should be abolished immediately.
‘Irritants’ such as trade license tax, ID tax, registration tax, calendar donations, Christmas and New Year donations, etc. shall not be entertained anymore.
The ACAUT also wants that the yearly tax payable to different underground organisations should not be increased arbitrarily under any circumstances and therefore, amount payable shall be the same as in 2012.
The creation of the new system of ‘dealership’ by underground groups has been strongly condemned. For instance, it was pointed out that under this latest innovation to milk businesses dry, there is only one poultry dealer/supplier in the whole of Dimapur district and no poultry can be sold in the open market without the consent of this poultry dealer.
It can be noted here that the ACAUT had met the NSCN-IM, the NSCN-Khole/Kitovi and others on the issue.
Meanwhile, Dimapur Chamber of Commerce & Industry (DCCI), Dimapur Naga Students’ Union (DNSU) and Nagaland Medicine Dealers Association (NMDA), All Nagaland Taxi Association (ANTA) and All Nagaland Private Bus Union (ANPBU) have taken decisions to support the Dimapur bandh on Tuesday.
