MSF Jiribam intensifies stir
IMPHAL, Jun 26: As a subsequent step of its movement to provide the basic infrastructure of Jiribam Community Health Centre and in response to the indifference of the authority concerned despite several protest movements like picketing of Government offices in Jiribam, the Manipuri Students’ Federation (MSF) Jiri Branch has intensified its stir.
A statement issued by the Jiri Branch of MSF disclosed that it has kept under lock the ADC office of Jiribam which was earlier left untouched. Moreover for defying its restrictions on the office of Jiribam Block Congress Committee (I), the office was again re-locked today while all the other State offices are still kept locked.
As of now, the ZEO office of Jiribam is kept bey- ond the purview of the protest movement as it is dir- ectly responsible for sch-ool education in Jiribam, mentioned the statement while cautioning that if the deficiencies of the Jiribam Community Health Centre are not fulfilled immediately , ZEO office might face the same fate as other offices.
The student body further claimed that all the State machinery in the Jiribam sub-division have been totally paralysed.
It noted that the Jiribam CHC does not serve only the people of Manipur but also people of many other neighbouring villages including the Manipuris of Barak valley, Assam.
The student further maintained that all its written complaints and appeals are not to decorate the tables of officers concerned and its protest movements are not meant to entertain the authority concerned.
If the demands of the Jiribam people are not met by June 30, MSF would impose a 24 hour general strike at Jiribam with effect from 4 am of July 1, warned the student body.
