“Protest social work” at CCpur’s Guite road draws support

From M Kaimuanthang
Lamka, Jan 9: The proposed "Mass Protest Social Work along Guite Road" to be organise by the Zomi Students Federation in collaboration with Civil Societies bodies based at Ccpur district demanding the handing over of Guite Road construction to the BRO/BRTF has received prompt response from the publics over and above government officials.
The minister Power , Hort & Soil Convtn, Sc & Tech has donated an amount of Rs 1 Lakhs for refreshment while the Singngat MLA T Hangkhanpau and Suanchinpau a contractor have agreed to arrange for 1 JCB and 1 Bulldozer each for preparation of the Tuivel river Bridge diversion which are now on the brink of collapse, and the issue of which has been publicised even in the Imphal Free Press apart from other newspapers.
The DSO / Ccpur, Guite Road Transport Cooperative Society Ltd, Lamka - Aizawl Sumo Service Assn, Ccpur Shatiman Owners Assn, Malwari Society, Bihari and Bengali Traders while declaring their fullest support decided not to rest at there by generously donating either in cash or in kind and in various other capacities.
Meanwhile talking to a number of drivers who have extended the support but refused to be name said inspite of the much talk about development on par with the hills and valleys roads at the hills are in such a deplorable state and such activities like the the protest mass social work is neccessary to be organised.
Where is the government and why such an important roads like the Guite Roads has not been maintained question another while pointing out it is the government which is supposed to take up steps for all this measures without demands being made by the people but inspite of persistent demands it is in this state.
It may be reiterated that apparently yielding to the pressures of the ZSF , CDSU along with many civil societies the Union government through the Ministry of Defence approved the construction of Guite Road with GS Funds but the Govt of Manipur has steadfastly obstructed the handing over of the road to BRO in compliance with the centres approval on flimsy grounds.
For Mass Protest vehicle owners will assemble their vehicles at Ebenezer Academy Campus and at Lamka Public grounds between 2 Pm of 9 and 5 PM of 10 and on the day all intending participants will assemble at the said two places and start moving towards towards the road stretch from 8 am.
The organiser further urged all shop owners to close their shops as a mark of protest of the govts negligence.
In the venture which are to be conducted on the 11th Jan next.(IFP)
