IMPHAL, Jan 15: Attempt to fragment the territory of Manipur to create political boundary like Nagalim or Kukiland is not a good sign and such attempts would only flare up communal tension, MLA RK Anand of MPP has stated.

Along with reviewing the developmental works taken up in Naoriya Pakhanglakpa Assembly Constituency, a discussion session on other developmental works to be taken up was facilitated at the Kwakeithel Akham Leikai residence of MLA Anand today.

Attended by representatives, advisors, social workers and sympathizers from all the 32 polling stations of the Constituency, progress report of the developmental works that have been implemented successfully as well as those to be taken up in future were also presented to the people at the occasion.

Addressing the gathering, MLA RK Anand observed that while there is apprehension over communal tension in the North Eastern region as a fallout of faulty policies of the Government of   Government of India, attempt to fragment the territory of Manipur and create different community based political boundaries like Nagalim, Kukiland, etc is really unfortunate.

With some sections of the people trying to create political boundaries based on communities and the UGs in valley area of Manipur opposing to any attempt on disintegrating the existing territorial boundary, there is the need for all the communities to sit together without any precondition to talk and understand each other, MLA Anand pointed out.

He went on to say that even though he is representing MPP, various issues of the State including threat on the territorial boundary have been taken up for discussion and resolution on the floor of the Assembly.

The MLA said that when a candidate who is opposed to the territorial integrity of Manipur was proposed in the election of Rajya Sabha member, he alone had not given the vote while rest of the 59 MLAs in the 60-member House voted in favor of the said candidate.

‘˜’˜I had not given the vote in consideration of the aspiration of the people of Naoriya Pakhanglakpa Assembly Constituency”, he added.

For setting up a political forum of the North Eastern States, a joint meeting of all the community leaders is essential. All the sitting MLAs and those who aspire to become MLAs should understand this fact, the MLA further added.

In connection with developmental works to be taken up, MLA Anand informed that setting up of a water supply scheme under NLCPR in the Constituency has been approved. Once this scheme is taken up, problem of water scarcity being faced by the people would be solved.

Along with dredging the Waishel Maril drainage system, efforts are also being made for construction of a mini-barrage for irrigational purpose, the MLA informed the gathering.
