From spark to arson

The way the Manipur government is dealing with the issue of the Manipur Police Constable (Male) recruitment appeared candidates for 2013 batch, is nothing but inviting another burden to the already loaded people of the state. From a spark it is now turning into arson with state BJP openly supporting the cause. A mere clarification which failed to prove the credential of the state government is not enough to extinguish the anger of 10,200 plus youths if the state that is at the verge of losing its whole career. Besides, the arrival of state assembly election appeared as a boon to the deprive candidates as, ‘the would be’ main opponent political party of the congress counterpart now openly support the cause by even joining the candidates in their protest.
It’s been long that the candidates have been demanding declaration of the result of the recruitment test which was completed a year back. Various forms of agitations including sit-in-protest demonstration, protest rally, bandh, blockade on High ways has been staged, But the government headed by chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh did not consider the kind of agitation as serious and left the matter ignored.
This is being said because the Honourable Chief Minister Mr. Okram Ibobi Singh had once said that bandh Blockade are coming happening in the state and there is nothing to worry. For mr. Okram Ibobi and his relatives, bandh blockade do not affect them so it might be just an event of interest to him as he can take leave from attending important public function. Same way his relatives who had been on security protection round the clock they have no problems and could not be affected as they could visit anywhere, anytime when desire.
But the common people, for example those living on hand to mouth, those women who support their family with the piece of products they sold in the market, bandh or blockade are a matter of serious concern.
One thing even more surprises is the clarification of the deputy Chief Minister Gaikhangam, which stated that the cancellation of the recruitment test was done as according to the finding of the enquiry committee conducted by the principal secretary to the state government. It was on Janmathami Day that Mr. Home Minister announced the clarification to prove that their government was doing the right thing by cancelling the recruitment test. The unfortunate part is the mental status of Mr. Home Minister at which he failed to see things that may arises as a result of the clarification where the act may be challenged and criticised.
If the government really felt that justice should be done to the people then it should be done in an unbiased manner. The findings mentioned about irregularities and foul play during the various stages of the recruitment test. But how could the government left aside those government departments who conducted the test and punished the candidates who only followed what was told to them. If justice should be done then before making any statement or before taking any hard decisions action should have been taken to those who are responsible in sabotaging the recruitment process.
The mental status of the Ibobi government which underestimated every public issues and who consider him as the master of handling public issue either by force or negotiation is not going to work this time. The BJP is already in. They have picked up something which is going to be an important strategy of the party in the upcoming election. Now it was little spark of fire that first started the issue but now this issue arises after the cancellation of the police constable candidate recruitment test is going to be an arson which might cinder the government into ashes by redrawing the State Assembly Election Scheduled to a date not less than six months if President took the power from the state government.
