Need to study LPG diversion Non-locals in subscribers list

There are just too many loose ends to be swept under the carpet with some excuses or ‘explanations.’ The non-local names that one finds in the list of Tousem Indane Gramin Vitrak, an LPG distributor based at Tousem, may be explained on the ground that these people stay at Tousem on a temporary basis and have availed the gas connection from the said distributor. This is however highly unlikely for some of the names mentioned are found to be actually staying at Imphal in some locality.

Cracking down on LPG hoarders Now go for the big fishes

It is obvious. The drive launched by the State police against LPG hoarders and seizing 686 LPG cylinders in the last two days perfectly complements the campaign launched by The Sangai Express under the caption, “WANTED : Cooking Gas, Not Laughing Gas”. This is what gives us a certain sense of satisfaction, after all as a newspaper we can only bring certain things to the notice of everyone while it is up to the Government to take it up from there and see what may be done. Cracking the whip, this is what the Government has done and this augurs well for everyone. Now that it is well known that certain elements have been hoarding cooking gas, it is only right that the State police try to find out how the hoarders managed to lay their hands on such a large number of gas cylinders in the first place. As IGP Soibam Ibocha revealed during a media conference on September 30 at the conference hall of the Imphal West SP, there is strong likelihood of some gas agencies working hands in gloves with the black marketers and it is only right that the State police get down to the task of cracking the case and unmask all those who have been milking the situation dry.

Since dead man tells no tale… Truth should be unearthed

Dead man tells no tale. So it is that the truth seems to have disappeared with the body of Pravis Chanam all suggesting that there may be a conspiracy in the decision to dispose the body, even though the fact remains that an FIR had been lodged with Knowledge Park police station. Definitely Pravis Chanam will not be back to tell his story, and this is all the more reason why the truth should be dug out. And there are reasons to believe that there could have been a conspiracy if one takes into account the incidents after Pravish disappeared.

Diverting filled cylinders from the hills Route to black market

The question is just how regularly do LPG consumers in the hill districts receive their quota of subsidised cooking gas ? This question is raised against the backdrop of the story published in The Sangai Express under the caption ‘Hill based LPG distributors diverting loads to Imphal ! ’.

Away from Imphal centric mindset Govt-Hills Bhai Bhai !

Moving away from the Imphal centric approach. Best exemplified by the Cabinet meeting held at Churachandpur some time back. Announcing that the Shirui Lily Festival will be upgraded to the level of the Sangai Festival. The attention focused on the Barak Festival held at Senapati not so long after the Shirui Lily Festival. Setting aside the 10th of every month as Hill Leaders’ Day wherein the Chief Minister and his Council of Ministers reserve the day to meet people from the hill districts ranging from Church leaders, NGO representatives and the village folks.
