Harmless insects: Documentation process started

Source: The Sangai Express

Imphal, September 05: From among the available entomological wealth in the North East region including Manipur, Institute of Bioresource and Sustainable Development (IBSD) has started documentation of insects which are not harmful for human consumption or for using for dyeing and medical purposes.

The IBSD has been carrying out research to find out the insects with economic importance through proper documentation in a scientific manner from the multitudes of insects found in the region either in water or on trees or among the grasses which are being relished by the people of Manipur since ancient time.

In this connection, a team of scientists from the Institute led by Dr Tourangbam Shantibala today went to New Hengkot of Churachandpur district to collect the samples of Stingbug locally known as Thangthang for proper documentation and further research.

Stingbug, which swarmed New Hengkot area starting from the month of April is eaten or the oil extract of it used by the people of Churachandpur district in general.

The delicacy made from fried Stingbug mixed with ginger, chilly and salt is so popular that every household has stocked sacks and sacks of this insect after being fried to be eaten during lean season.

The popularity of the this insect is also such that it is being sold for Rs 5 to 10 per pau in the markets of Churachandpur.

Moreover, the oil extracted from Stingbug is also used in cooking like mustard oil.

Interacting with The Sangai Express, Dr Shantibala informed that so far the Institute has scientifically documented over 20 insects found in the North Eastern States more particularly in Manipur which are being consumed by the people.

The documentation also covered insects being used for dyeing and medicinal purposes.

Among the consumable insects, Hari Nongnang, Naosek, Chikchibri, Maikumbi, Khoingang, Kangchet, Koujeng, etc are included and among the insects used for medicinal purpose, fire fly or glowworm (Tandon) is included.

The main purpose of the research being carried out by the Institute is to propagate these useful insects with employment of modern technology and provide the benefit to the people, Dr Shantibala explained, while informing that the nutritional value of these insects is very high.

The sample of Stingbug collected from Churachandpur would be send to the Zoological Survey of Indian to examine and find out it fat content, Dr Shantibala informed.

Mongjang village gets a water reservoir

Imphal Free Press

IMPHAL, Sept 5: The PHED & tourism minister, TN Haokip today inaugurated a water reservoir built at Mongjang village in the Churachandpur district by the public health engineering department at a cost of Rs 14.17 crore sanctioned from the non-lapsable central pool of resources, NLCPR, of the NEC.

Expressing happiness over the installation of the water reservoir, the PHED minister said this will ensure that the villager in the area will now have access to clean piped drinking water.

However he cautioned against the short-sighted practice in Manipur whereby the public are given to rupturing steel pipes of the government department so as to tap water in unauthorised manner.

He said the villagers must ensure that such things do not happen and realise that preserving the reservoir and its supply system is in their own interest ultimately.

He said the contract culture in Manipur has also destroyed all quality control in government development work, and in preventing this, the cooperation of all is vital.

He said the reservoir is fed by two streams, Koite and Loklai, and the people in the area must ensure that their catchments are not destroyed through logging and deforestation. Should any of these streams dry up, the reservoir will be rendered useless, he added.

The minister also said that the request of the villagers that the reservoir should have a chowkidar and waterman to look after it, will be forwarded to the chief minister and efforts would be made to have it implemented.

Tribal development department chairman T Manga Vaiphei said the reservoir will make adequate clean drinking water available to 42,150 villagers, calling it a big achievement of the SPF government.

He also called on the people to treat the reservoir as their own property and take good care of it. The attitude the government property is different from private property must be put an end to, he said. Government property is the people’s property, he said.

The function was also attended by various officials and village authorities.

High level meeting to discuss enforcement of SoO ground rules

Imphal Free Press

IMPHAL, Sep 5: The Union home ministry will hold a high-level meeting next week with representatives of the state government and the Kuki National Organisation (KNO) and United People’s Front (UPF) to discuss the enforcement of ground rules under the suspension of operation, SoO signed with the two outfits on October 22, a report from New Delhi said.

The report quoting an official source from the Union home ministry said that the state government authorities were working towards setting up of designated camps for the militant groups.

The meeting will have representatives of the two organisations, officials of the Union ministry of home affairs, Manipur state government officials led by the principal secretary (home). The report, however, could not immediately confirm the date on which the meeting is to be held.

Mention may be made that a tripartite agreement between the Central government, state government and representatives of the two Kuki based militants groups, KNO (a body of 11 different militant groups) and UPF (another body of different militant groups of the same Kuki tribe) was signed on August 22 in New Delhi at a hotel.

On the next day, the Manipur government approved the agreement signed under the ground rules framed by the Manipur government with the state principal secretary home as signatory.

Even though the SoO agreements between the Indian Army and the constituents of KNO and UPF have been in force since August 1, 2005, the Manipur government did not recognize the same stating that it had no a clear-cut ground rules despite the Centre’s insistence.

Later, a meeting chaired by Union home secretary Madhukar Gupta last year suggested ways to reach a ceasefire with the Kuki based militant groups under the two umbrella organizations, KNO and UPF.

As the Manipur government was not party to the previous SoO, the talks between the Centre and the KNO and UPF remained without moving ahead despite the Centre’s reported eagerness to initiate peace talks with the tribal militant groups.

The fresh development has been considered to be a chance to gain some control over the rising activities of militant groups in the insurgency hit state, a media report in New Delhi quoted officials of the Union home ministry as saying.

After several rounds of tripartite meetings between the Central, state and representatives of the two umbrella organizations during last year and in the current year, finally with slight modifications to the ground rules, the agreement on SoO was signed last month.

As per the preamble of the ground rules of the SoO agreement, the militant outfits agreed to abide by the Constitution of India, the law of the land and the territorial integrity of Manipur.

Among others, the ground rules which were agreed to while signing the agreement included completely abjuring the path of violence by the constituent groups of the KNO and UPF and not to engage in violent or unlawful activities like killing, injuring, kidnapping, ambush, extortions, intimidations, carrying of arms in public and imposing of “tax” or “fines”.

In turn, the security forces (the army, paramilitary forces and the state police) would not launch operations against the group as long as they abide by the agreement, the preamble of the agreement which was later given approval by the state Cabinet stated, the source disclosed.

The cadres of the groups will stay in designated camps and responsibility of the administration would be in their hands under the ground rules but the location and numbers of the designated camps will be decided by a joint monitoring group, JMG to be constituted with the representatives of the Central, state and representatives of the KNO and UPF.

The designated camps will not be located close to populated areas and national highways, the approved agreement said, adding that these camps should be located at a reasonable distance from the international border as well as inter-state boundaries.

Environmental security of the camps will be provided by the security forces while cadres will protect their own camps under the approved agreement.

Issuance of identity cards to the underground cadres, providing of a complete list of the cadres to the IG, Special Branch, Manipur police, obtaining of prior approval from the nominated security forces or state police when cadres want to move out from its designated area are other norms to be followed by the underground under the SoO.

Cadres of outfits must also obtain prior permission while moving from one designated camp.

With regard to the weapons of the outfits, the approved agreement said that all weapons would be deposited at the camps central armoury of the outfit with double locking system, with one key with the group and other with the concerned security forces, and record of the same would be made available to the police and maintained at the armoury.

No permission to carry weapons by a cadres individually or as group and non-recruitment of any fresh cadres or raising additional military/civil outfits/frontal organizations or trying to run its own sovereign government, not to carry out offensive operations like ambush, raid, sniping and attacks leading to death/injury/damage or loss of property against the security forces, other groups and or the public are the conducts of cadres during the course of the SoO arrangements.

Even though the outfits can celebrate their raising day within the camp, they will not be allowed to construct memorials, hoist flags or carry out parades of armed cadres, it said adding that the cadres would also not be allowed to move with uniforms with or without arms in public places and they also would not extend support to any other outfits which are not included in the SoO agreement.

A joint monitoring group to oversee the implementation of the SoO would be set up and the same would be headed by the principal secretary, home department, government of Manipur and include the inspector general of police (intelligence), Manipur and representatives of ministry of home affairs, Central police organizations (CPOs) and army and the underground groups. The JMG will meet once in a month, it said.

In case of groups found violating the ground rules repeatedly, the state government on the recommendation of the joint monitoring group, JMG would be free to terminate the SoO arrangements and also take appropriate action including use of force against the group.

Monika's name not on list

The Sangai Express

Imphal, September 04: Launching a long term plan in weight-lifting for the Common Wealth Games to be hosted by India at New Delhi in 2010, the Indian Weight Lifting Federation has announced the names of 32 men weight lifters and 28 women weight lifters to undergo a long term camp from October 1, 2008 to October 31, 2010.Interestingly L Monika Devi is not amongst those named in the 28 women lifters list.

The storm over the last minute exclusion of L Monika from the Beijing squad on doping charges, which were later withdrawn by Sports Authority of India and Indian Olympic Association, is yet to blow over with many still demanding an unconditional apology for the alleged discrimination.

However nine girls from Manipur but representing other States and institutions have been named to undergo the strenuous two year camp.

The women from Manipur who have been named in the list are, A Sandhyarani Devi (Police), Sunibala Devi (Assam), G Laxmi (Karnataka), W Nandini Devi (Police), H Poireinganbi Chanu (Jharkhand), K Romi Devi (Delhi), A Janeshori Devi (Karnataka), Nansita Devi (Haryana) and Sumati Devi (Delhi).

Weight lifting coach of SAI, Manipur A Ranjan has also been appointed as the Programme Officer of the said camp.

The list will be whittled down to 20 men lifters and 16 women lifters in the last six months of the two years camp.

The camp will hold at different places including abroad.

In India the squad will train for 693 days with 50 days marked as holidays and the venues include Pune, SAI Bangalore while some other options have also been named.

The optional venues include Vizag, Manipur and Hyderabad.

There will be 10 coaches for the entire period of the camp including two women coaches, according to a circulation issued by the Indian Weight Lifting Federation.

The Coaching abroad include three for 28 lifters, five coaches and two officials; six weeks camp/competition in Australia (January 2009) for 36 lifters, six coaches and two officials; SAI coaching/training/competition with Pakistan/Sri Lanka/ Bangladesh/Nepal (January 10) and Bilateral training/competition with Indonesia/ Thailand (April 10). Other activities include two regional championships (SAF and Asian), one international championship (Commonwealth) and two educational seminars with foreign faculty.

It is not yet known why L Monika Devi has not been named in the squad to undergo the two year long camp even though SAI had earlier withdrawn the doping charges against her.

At the moment, former Chief Election Commissioner of India Krishnamurthy has been appointed to probe the issue and to come out with a finding soon.

The report of the Krishnamurthy investigation is yet to be tabled and the Co-ordinating Committee Against the Conspiracy to Exclude Monika from Beijing Olympics by the Government of India has been demanding that the probe report be submitted soon.

State Youth Affairs and Sports Minister N Biren had yesterday (September 3) assured that he would do his best to get an answer and assured that something will come out within three days time from September 3. Earlier, a public meeting held at Khuman Lampak Sports Complex had decided to boycott all National and international sports meet until justice is delivered and weeks camp at Hungary (November 2008) apologies tendered.

Manipur marching ahead with NHRM to achieve “Health for All” by 2010

Imphal Free Press

IMPHAL, Sep 4: Two district hospitals in Manipur, the Churachandpur and Bishnupur district hospitals, will be upgraded to the level of the Indian Public Health Centre under the National Rural Health Mission, NRHM. The process for these initiatives has already been launched, a DIPR statement said Wednesday.

The authorities are trying their best to implement the objectives of the mission in all the nine districts and 36 blocks through 917 healthcare centres including RIMS and JN Hospital.

A total of 917 health centres including Regional Institute of Medical Sciences and JN Hospital in Manipur have joined hands with authorities of the National Rural Health Mission, NRHM to achieve the target of “Health for all and all for health” by 2010.

Other healthcare centres include seven district hospitals, 16 community health centres, 72 primary health centres and 420 primary health sub-centres, according to the official data.

Out of the total, 90 percent of the works for upgradation of 13 of the 16 community health centres has been completed and upgradation of 20 primary health centres out of 72 has already been completed, the officials added.

Construction works of buildings of 65 sub-centres have also been completed so far and that of 35 others are under progress while repairs at 60 other buildings have also been completed.

For better performance and successful implementation of the scheme, the state government has also appointed 53 medical officers, 74 Ayush doctors, 84 staff nurses, 14 public health nurses, 463 NNM, 32 labour technicians, eight pharmacies, 32 radiographers on contract basis and posted at the community, primary health centres and sub-centres.

Out of the total of 3000, training has been imparted to 1243 Asha activists and the remaining are also under training.

A total of 5683 pregnant women got the benefit of delivering children at the delivery centres arranged under the mission during the year 2007-08 while 1629 women have been given the same benefit during the current year 2008-09 till June.

Even though NRHM programme was launched in the country on April 12, 2005, in Manipur it commenced after a delay of one and half months from November 9, 2006 after the constitution of the State Health Mission Society in April, 2006.

The society was registered as Manipur State Health Mission Society under the Manipur Society Registration Act. District health mission societies were also constituted and apart from this, a state level steering group headed by the Manipur chief minister has also been constituted.

Improvement in health and nutrition of the general masses, reducing the mortality rate, delivery and crude birth, crude death, infant mortality etc. due to malnutrition, improvement of infrastructure of the healthcare centres, protection from communicable diseases, awareness to the people specially women on health related hygiene are the objectives of the NRHM, officials of the mission society said.

The health mission also includes developing the AYUSH based health treatment system

Teacher's Day | September 5

It is the birthday of the second President of India, academic philosopher Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan. It is considered a "celebration" day, where teachers and students report to school as usual but the usual activities and classes are replaced by activities of celebration, thanks and remembrance. At some schools on this day, the responsibility of teaching is taken up by the senior students as an appreciation for their teachers.

Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan

One of the foremost scholars of comparative religion and philosophy, he built a bridge between Eastern and Western thought showing each to be comprehensible within the terms of the other. He introduced Western idealism into Indian philosophy and was the first scholar of importance to provide a comprehensive exegesis of India's religious and philosophical literature to English speaking people. His academic appointments included the King George V Chair of Mental and Moral Science at the University of Calcutta (1921-?) and Spalding Professor of Eastern Religions and Ethics at Oxford University (1936-1952).

He was the first Vice President of India (1952-1962), and the second President of India (1962-1967). His birthday is celebrated in India as Teacher's Day.

Life and career

Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan (Sarvepalli is his family name, and Radhakrishnan his given name) was born into a middle class Telugu Brahmin family at Tiruttani, a town in Tamil Nadu, India, 64 km to the northwest of Madras (now known as Chennai). His mother tongue was Telugu. His early years were spent in Tiruttani, Tiruvallur and Tirupati. His primary education was in Gowdie School, Tiruvallur, and higher school education in P.M.High School, Gajulamandyam, Renigunta. He married Sivakamamma in 1904 at age 16 in Vellore. They had five daughters and a son, Sarvepalli Gopal.[1] He graduated with a Master's degree in Philosophy from the prestigious Madras Christian College,being one of its most distinguished alumni.

In 1921, he was appointed as a philosophy professor to occupy the King George V Chair of Mental and Moral Science at the University of Calcutta. Radhakrishnan represented the University of Calcutta at the Congress of the Universities of the British Empire in June 1926 and the International Congress of Philosophy at Harvard University in September 1926. In 1929, Radhakrishnan was invited to take the post vacated by Principal J. Estlin Carpenter in Manchester College, Oxford. This gave him the opportunity to lecture to the students of the University of Oxford on Comparative Religion. He was knighted in 1931, but did not use the title in personal life. He was the Vice-Chancellor of Andhra University from 1931 to 1936. In 1936, Radhakrishnan was named Spalding Professor of Eastern Religions and Ethics at the University of Oxford, and was elected a Fellow of All Souls College. When India became independent in 1947, Radhakrishnan represented India at UNESCO, and was later India's first ambassador in Moscow. He was also elected to the Constituent Assembly of India.

Radhakrishnan was elected as the first Vice President of India in 1952.[2] In 1956, his wife Sivakamamma died. They were married for over 51 years.[3] He was elected as the second President of India (1962-1967). When he became President, some of his students and friends requested him to allow them to celebrate his birthday, September 5. He replied,

"Instead of celebrating my birthday, it would be my proud privilege if 5 September is observed as Teachers' Day."

His birthday has since been celebrated as Teachers' Day in India.[4]Radhakrishnan along with Ghanshyam Das Birla and few other Social Workers in pre independence era formed Krishnarpan Charity Trust.


Radhakrishnan argued that Western philosophers, despite all claims to objectivity, were biased by theological influences of their own culture.[5] He wrote books on Indian philosophy according to Western academic standards, and made Indian philosophy worthy of serious consideration in the West. In his book "Idealist View of Life" he has made a powerful case for the importance of intuitive thinking as opposed to purely intellectual forms of thought. He is well known for his commentaries on the Prasthana Trayi namely, the Bhagavadgita, the Upanishads and the Brahma Sutra.

He was elected as a Fellow of the British Academy in 1938. He was awarded the Bharat Ratna in 1954, and the Order of Merit in 1963. He received the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade in 1961, and the Templeton Prize in 1975, a few months before his death. He donated the entire Templeton Prize amount to Oxford University. In 1964 he declared that he was not truly a monist philosopher, for if he were, his father would not have given him this name, Radhakrishnan; subsequently, he became disciple in a Gaudiya Math branch.[6] The Oxford University instituted the Radhakrishnan Chevening Scholarships and the Radhakrishnan Memorial Award in his memory.

Mautam relief

The Sangai Express

Imphal, September 03: At a time when any form of Governmental relief is confined to a mere 4000 quintal of rice, Churches in Mautam affected district of Churachandpur have utilised more than two crores rupees in relief during the past eight months, reports our CCpur correspondent.

Against the backdrop of civil societies no longer approaching the Govern ment, a survey conducted by The Sangai Express in a handful of Churches today revealed that more than Rs 2 crores, mainly foreign grants have already been utilised by six parent Church bodies.

Topping on the chart, RPC-NEI has claimed that Rs 85 lakhs worth of rice have been distributed in the interior block of Vangai and Tipaimukh.

The Partnership Missions Society has dispatched 2000 qntls of rice and Rs 45 lakhs in cash through its 'food for work' programme.

Evangelical Baptist Convention has allocated Rs 8 lakhs for relief in its latest budget but spent more than 16 lakhs for the same.

PCI (R) and CBA have also set aside Rs 12 and 10 lakhs respectively for the Mautam affected populace.

The Independent churches of India, also one of the biggest relief suppliers was not sure of their share as the man in-charge was out of station but they have collected more than Rs 4 lakhs through its Churches.

NEICORD an NGO based in Shillong has provided rice and dal to 6561 families in Tipaimukh, Vangai and Henglep areas with the support of World Relief Canada/Canadian Foodgrains Bank.

The monetary worth of their packages is exactly unknown but it surely is worth multiples of crores.

With Churches concen trating on the most complex district in the State, relief materials distributed this year alone could have crossed Rs 10 lakhs as most the Churches have received foreign donation in this regard.

A small Church such as the Chin Baptist Association (CBA) with presence only in sixteen villages, contributing Rs 10 lakhs worth of rice in 54 villages of Singngat sub division tells the efforts and funds being contributed through the Church coffers.

The leaders, in-charge of the Church reliefs have all through maintained that more assistance was needed by the people.

If their claims were anything to go by, and the insistence of civil societies that the contribution of Churches were minimal, the looming famine could have claimed its toll anytime.

Each passing day the farmers were losing their standing crops to the avid rodents, and the government still assuming that 25kg of rodenticidc will be sufficient for the entire district Rs.45,000 worth in cash and 500 bags of rice collected by COMFA in their bid to fight the famine will vanish in thin air unless the Chief Minister made unassuming intervention during his sojourn with the committee when he comes here for it highly pitched concert event.

All-religion peace rally in Shillong

Shillong, Sept. 3: An all-religion peace rally will be held in Shillong on Monday to express solidarity with the people hit by communal violence in Orissa.

The president of the Catholic Association of Khasi Jaintia Hills, S.L. Marbaniang, said besides the Christians, people from all religious groups, including Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhists, will take part in the peace rally led by the Catholic association.

According to Marbaniang, the violence against Christians is on the rise in Orissa. He said the association was preparing a memorandum to be submitted to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and President Pratibha Patil.

The association urged chief minister Donkupar Roy to send a peace team to Orissa to assess the situation and offer a solution to end the unabated violence.

On August 29, the Catholic educational institutions in the state were closed in protest against the atrocities committed against Christians in Orissa. The Catholic churches in the state had also offered prayers on Sunday for the victims of communal clashes.

Several political parties in the state, such as the United Democratic Party, the state unit of the BJP and organisations like the Central Puja Committee and the Meghalaya Peoples Human Rights Council have expressed concern over the deteriorating law and order in Orissa.


KSU wants Northeast out of treaty

Shillong, Sept. 3: The Khasi Students Union (KSU) today urged the Centre to exempt Meghalaya and the rest of the Northeast from the purview of the 1950 Indo-Nepal treaty.

Taking exception to the frequent visits of central officials to Meghalaya only to discuss mining of uranium, KSU president Samuel Jyrwa today told The Telegraph that instead of taking up uranium mining which poses health hazards, the Centre should take up other important issues such as exemption of the Northeast from the 1950 Indo-Nepal Treaty, besides taking steps to check illegal migration from Bangladesh.

The students’ union also wants New Delhi to solve the long-pending inter-state and international border disputes.

According to the KSU, the influx of Nepali citizens to Meghalaya and the rest of the Northeast is a matter of concern as it is changing the demography of the region.

“Nepal’s Prime Minister Prachanda has suggested a review of the Indo-Nepal friendship treaty of 1950, but what we insist on is the exemption of the Northeast from the treaty,” Jyrwa said.

The KSU leaders have raised the issue during a recent meeting with Union cabinet secretary K.M. Chandrashekar in Shillong.

“We also discussed with him the need to adopt an effective mechansim to check largescale influx of migrants from Bangladesh,” Jyrwa said.

At the meeting, the KSU, however, made it clear to Chandrashekar and Anil Kakodkar, the chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission, that it would not allow uranium mining in the state.

“There is no change in our stand on uranium mining and the same will be communicated to any central official visiting the state,” Jyrwa said.

New Delhi is rushing principal secretary to the Atomic Energy Commission, V.P. Raja, to Shillong on September 22 to convince the NGOs to agree to uranium mining.

Asked whether the students’ union will meet Raja, Jyrwa said: “We will see. We will meet first and discuss it among ourselves.”

According to the KSU, the Centre should also intervene to find a solution to the long-pending boundary dispute with Assam and the state’s border problem with Bangladesh.

Just before the February Assembly elections in the state , the East Khasi Hills district administration dropped the names of several Nepali citizens from the list of voters for elections.


Students' stir in NE

By : Iboyaima Laithangbam

Some of the North Eastern states--Meghalaya, Manipur and Assam- have been reeling under the stir of the students' organisations on various issues. The state governments have been going out of the way to appease some of them with huge financial assistance in developmental projects and promise to concede to their demands partially. However the stir has been burgeoning as the students have spurned the stick and carrot appeasement policy.

In an unprecedented show of generosity a Rs 800 crore compensation package to develop the infrastructure in the villages of Meghalaya which will be affected by uranium mining in West Khasi Hills district was announced. The Khasi Students' Union (KSU) has been objecting to the plan for uranium mining by the Uranium Corportation of India Limited (UCIL). The KSU president Samuel Jyrwa says that the compensation package was nothing but a "bribe". He added that there is objection as the people will be exposed to health hazards once the mining starts. The Langrin Youth Welfare Association formed by representatives of 15 out of 50 villages to be affected by the uranium minings said that it will never allow the mining in the state in view of the health hazards. After the 1992 exploratory works many children were taken ill and fishes had died in the Kyanshi and the Rilang rivers. Once the mining is conducted in full swing the people and other living beings will be exposed to radiation, the representatives said. During the June 12,2007 public hearing on the uranium mining, it is pointed out, 85 per cent of the people rejected the proposal of the UCIL.

The KSU had also successfully stalled the conduct of the admission test for MBBS course held at Shillong on August 3. The newly constructed central medical college, North East Indira Gandhi Regional Institute of Health and Medical Sciences (NEIGRIHMS), Shillong, has 50 MBBS seats. Megahalay was allotted nine seats out of which two will be reserved for the children of staff and faculties. Contending that it is not enough the KSU has been demanding reservation of 15 seats out of 50 for the students of the state. The KSU activists disrupted the admission test. The Union Health Minister Abumani Ramadoss and other representatives agreed to increase five seats for the Meghalaya students immediately. Five seats will be added to Regional Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) and the two others adjusted elsewhere in the country. Out of 100 medical seats available in RIMS Meghalaya gets 19 seats .A source in RIMS said that it will be no easy thing to increase the seats for Meghalaya alone since other NE states will clamour for more seats for their students.Ramadoss has already agreed to increase the seats in RIMS to 150.It will be another story if Meghalaya is given the five seats out of the 50 seats earmarked for RIMS.However on the basis of the assurances given by Ramadoss and others the KSU has agreed to call off their agitation with the result that the NEIGRIHMS will be shortly conducting the admission test.

The Democratic Students' Alliance of Manipur (DESAM) has been giving sleepless nights to some Ministers,high officials and construction contractors in the state. The activists have been inspecting newly constructed school and college buildings.Since these constructions were found to be sub-standard the DESAM members have been demolishing the same. The contractors say that since they have to pay illegal tax to a number of outlawed underground organisations only a small percentage of the sanctioned amount is left for the actual construction works. However the DESAM is not listening to it and says that new quality constructions should be done immediately. Some students had also been hurt when portions of the newly constructed buildings had collapsed during office hours.In view of the frequent blockades,general strikes and other forms of agitations students get hardly 150 days of class and this is one of the major factors for mass failures in all examinations. At the behest of the DESAM now all educational institutes are free from all forms of agitations.Even during general strikes the students are attending classes.

The All Koch-Rajbonshi Students' Union has been a force to reckon with in Assam. It has imposed a 1000-hour blockade from July 21 demanding a separate state and scheduled tribe status. There was acute shortage of essential commodities during the blockade. On July 27 Bireswor Roy, one of the leaders was run over by a speeding car while escaping from the students. Traders and several organisations appealed to the students to call off the blockade since the people were hit below the belt.Announcing the temporary suspension of the blockade, Biswajit Roy, president of the students' organisation said that if the government does not fulfil the demands within one month the blockade would be resumed from September end.

The All Assam Students' Union (AASU) and other students' organisations in the NE states now reeling under untrammeled influx of foreigners from across the border have given final touches to revive the anti-foreigners' movement which was started in early 1980s. The students were propelled by the remark of a high court judge who said that the Bangladeshi national will soon become king makers in Assam. The students' organisations have been rounding up foreigners for handing over to police. This includes a Bangladeshi national who had contested elections several times in Assam. The Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi however has been playing down the gravity of the remark by the judge.

The Assam government says that during the period 2001-2008 as many as 3,00,000 suspected foreign nationals had been chargesheeted in comparison to around 50,000 during the Asom Gana Parishad government in 1996-2001. The term chargesheet means that a notice is given to the suspected foreigner by polcie and it can be contested in the Foreigners' Tribunal. However facts speak otherwise. During the peirod from 1985 to 2005 altogether 12,846 persons were chargesheeted. Out of them 1,547 foreigners were deported and 11,299 others were "missing". From July 2005 to March 2008 police chargesheeted 14,789 suspected foreigners. Just one of them was deported while others were reported "missing". Whenever the police and the AASU intensify the anti-foreigners' campaign these foreigners simply slip to other NE states to lie low till the dust settles down. In Assam there is a political dimension of the campaign as each political party is trying to make a political capital out of it. The Congress is attacking the BJP saying that it is targetting the Bangladeshi Muslims only while the Hindus are not harassed at all. But the HIndus are also foreigners , it was pointed out.

The Naga Students' Federation is not happy that the population of the foreigners in Nagaland is staggering notwithstanding the enforcement of the Inner Line Permit in the state and the Constitutional guarantee that the non-Nagas cannot own immovable properties in Nagaland. An outsider must obtain the permission for entering the state and must leave within the stipulated time.But many outsiders are running business in the names of some local residents.Sometimes the outsiders are round up and sent out of the state..But then the problem is far from solved.

In Manipur at least two members of the All Manipur Students' Union (AMSU) were shot dead during the anti-foreigners' movement. An official report said that out of 22,93,896 population (2001 census) in the state the non-tribals constitute 7,51,422 while tribals have a population of 6,70,782. As many as 7,04,488 are outsiders many of whom are suspected to be foreigners. They have outnumbered the tribals and it is projected that by 2020 the Manipuris will be swamped by outsiders as had happened in Tripura, another NE state. It is no accident that some armed persons have been killing every now and then the "economic migrants".

The students' organisations have geared up the anti-foreigners' campaign and the NE goverments may not find it easy to check it.


Assam flood situation critical, claims 15

Wednesday, September 03, 2008

Guwahati: The flood situation in Assam continued to be critical with Brahmaputra river and its tributaries creating havoc in the state claiming 15 lives, besides rendering several thousands homeless and snapping communication links.

Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi accompanied by senior officials made an aerial survey of Majuli, Asia s largest river island, whose condition is alarming with nearly the entire island under the flood waters, official sources said.

Gogoi directed the Jorhat district authorities to ensure adequate relief to the people with food scarcity looming large in the island as supply of essentials was hit by the rising water level.

The waist-deep flood waters engulfed 167 villages with a population of 1.5 lakh and was threatening fresh areas in the island, which houses several satras (Vaishnavite monasteries).

The authorities were forced to shift 34 prisoners from Goramur sub-divisional jail to Jorhat central jail following the inundation in Majuli, the sources said.

The situation in lower Assam s Rangiya sub-division too is critical following breaches in four embankments by Puthimari river.

With NH-31,the lifeline of the north east, still under flood water, road communication with the rest of the country is snapped for the fourth day today, the sources said.

Meghalaya govt to set up medical college

Shillong, Sep 3 : In order to address the shortage of trained medical professionals, the Meghalaya government has proposed to set up a medical institute under the Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) mode to meet the state's requirement.

The state is facing a major hurdle in health sector due to shortage of doctors to provide adequate healthcare facilities to the people.

''There is shortage of 400 doctors and we are facing a major challenge to meet the requirements of the people,'' state Health and Family Welfare Minister Dr Adviser Pariong said.

He also admitted that out of 103 Public Health Centres (PHCs), some of them were non-functional due to shortage of doctors to work in the PHCs.

Four months after taking over the helm of affairs, the Nationalist Congress Party-backed Meghalaya Progressive Alliance government invited Expressions of Interest to start the medical college.

''We have taken initiative to sort out this burgeoning issue by setting up a medical college to attract students to serve in the state,'' Dr Pariong said.

He added that five private institutions - Sikkim Manipal University, Max group, Martin Luther Christian University, KLE Kolkata and Industrial Leasing Finance Services (IFLS) - responded to the government's EOI.

''We will soon finalise the bids of these institutions and decide the location for setting up the first state-owned medical college,'' he said.

In fact, the Centre has already set up the North Eastern Indira Gandhi Regional Institute of Health and Medical Sciences (NEIGRIHMS), the region's lone postgraduate medical institute and the third in the country.

The Union Health Ministry had decided to start the MBBS course in the institute with the first intake of 50 students, including 24 students from those Northeastern states which do not have a medical college.

Hmar outfit suspected behind Mizoram ambush

Aizawl, Sep 3 : A Manipur-based Hmar underground outfit is suspected to be behind the ambush that killed four Mizo police in Mizoram’s Kolasib district yesterday.

”The Hmar People’s Convention(Democratic) or HPC(D) is suspected behind the ambush even though the outfit is yet to claim responsibility,” a police official told UNI here today.

The number of deaths had earlier been reported as six which was later revised to three.


HC tells Mizoram Government not to expel Plain people

Guwahati, Sep 3 : In what could be termed as temporary respite for non-Mizo settlers in Mizoram, the Gauhati High Court has instructed the Mizoram Government to allow the members of the North East Plain People Traders and Youth Federation (NEPPTYF) to continue their existing business in the State and not to expel them from the State till the process for verification of their citizenship is completed. The NEPPTYF has over two hundred members settled in Mizoram since long to earn their bread and butter, federation sources said.

The NEPPTYF had filed a public interest litigation (PIL) (No 19/2008) against the alleged harassment of non-Mizo traders settled in Mizoram during renewal and issuance of Inner Line Permit (ILP) and trade license. However, the federation has dropped its earlier appeal to repeal the Bengal Frontier Rule, which is in force in Mizoram, due to technical reasons, a legal source said, contradicting the Mizoram Home Secretary’s reported claim that the court has found no merit in the petition.

The division bench of the High Court comprising Justice BP Katakey and Justice Ranjan Gogoi has instructed the Silchar-based NEPPTYF to submit its list of members and all their relevant documents to the competent authorities under the Government of Mizoram for verification before issuance of trade licence and ILP in accordance with the Clause 8 of the administrative guideline issued on September 1, 2006 by the State authorities.

It will be desirable for the State of Mizoram to complete the process of verification as expeditiously as possible and allowing the petitioners to run their existing business, said the court. This interim exercise will be performed by the State of Mizoram on the basis of prima facie proof of the legitimacy of the entry of the person concerned into Mizoram and stay there for the purpose of conducting business, it added.

Senior advocates Abdul Muhib Mazumdar and AK Bhattacharjee stood in the court on behalf of the petitioner association, assisted by Abdul Kashim Talukdar, FKR Ahmed and S Islam, while the Advocate General of Mizoram stood in the court for the State of Mizoram.

Meanwhile, NEPPTYF president Apurba Kumar Paul, when contacted by The Sentinel, said the federation is also against entry of unscrupulous people in Mizoram which may endanger the age-old culture and socio-economic fabric of the State. “We just want justice for the original non-Mizo settlers who are in that State since long,” he added.


Mizoram to have 3 more districts

Aizawl, Sep 3 : The Mizoram Cabinet today decided to create three more districts in the State for administrative convenience.

While Hnahthial would come up by dissecting south Mizoram’s Lunglei district, Saitual district would be formed carving out parts of Aizawl.

Slicing off the Mizoram-Myanmar border district of Champhai would give rise to Khawzawl, a State Cabinet meeting decided last night.

Chief Secretary Haukhum Hauzel told PTI today that the demarcation of boundaries of the proposed three districts would be taken up later.

Hauzel said the Cabinet decided to divide Mizoram into two zones – North and South.

A senior IAS officer would be posted at Lunglei to look after southern districts like Lunglei, Saiha, Lawngtlai and the proposed Hnahthial districts.

“The Deputy Commissioners of the districts would have to communicate with the State Government through the Commissioner,” he said.
