Enhanced security measure is being considered in the back drop of series of bomb blasts and killing of migrant workers in the state capital. So far nobody has claimed responsibility for all that been perpetuated. Why these incidents happened? That needs to be discussed. Such type of incidents will continue to happen no matter whether security is strengthened or not. Even the Indian Parliament was attacked by the Mujahideen. Instances are not lacking. The perpetrators of such type of crime will always find the loopholes and strike at their sweet will. What is now required is making attempt to win the confidence and trust of the masses. No common men will go to police station and let out what they have in mind because they are apprehensive at the end they themselves will become the victims. The press fraternity is at the receiving end. Even the hawkers were threatened. Though no life attempt was made confusion prevails. Why should such type of incidents continue to happen? Manipur needs leaders with strong will power to cleanse the messes that have piled up everywhere. Such campaign should start from the top level. Fraudulent show of money power by the top level officials in grabbing land and also in constructing palatial buildings is the root cause of mushrooming of evils in the society. They give damn to the law of the land and indulge in doing what they think is beneficial to them. Even the elected representatives complain albeit secretly that they cannot face the haughtiness of top level bureaucrats. Bureaucrats flatly deny their request for extension of help to the needy people. All these bomb plants, killing of migrant workers reflect the angst and frustration of the youths. Highly educated and intelligent youths cannot dream of becoming a Government employee in Manipur. If they cannot garner up a few millions of rupees to fill the coffer of influential men their chances of stepping into Government is remote. Many sold away agricultural land to become SI or Jamadar. What can we expect from those who got the job through back door? No meaningful contribution will be made by them. When they are asked to remain vigilant, they will waste time dozing off. Therefore foot patrolling or enhanced security measure will yield no better result. What we need is transparency. Show it.
