The shattered NSU

Written By: / Editorial / Saturday, 30 January 2021 17:51

The dream project, which is a blessing not only for the sports lovers of the state but also for the entire people of the country, is in state of catastrophe. The series of incident that has been taking place to the establishment of the National Sports University, particularly yesterday’s violent incident indicated that someone, or some vested interested people want to sabotage the dream of the state , which is known as the powerhouse of sports in the country.
After everything has been completed for the construction of the infrastructures by completing formal procedures like demarcation for the land for the construction of the sports university, why there emerges an issue for ownership of the land contributed. What is the hidden agenda of claiming the land that has to be use for the people of the state? Why trouble water to the dream project? Are some people deliberately attempting to shift the NSU to other state or is it because that some pseudo intellectuals are creating the chaos for some personal political benefits. There are lot that can be speculated, because everyone knows that once the National Sports University has been constructed there will be no legal provision of trespassing the campus by any individuals no matter how close they settled. No matter who donate the land it will be for the NSU to provide more opportunity in the development of sports field and infrastructures , besides providing more opportunity for the sports person in exposing their talent. This University is not for any single community of the state neither it is the asset of Manipuri alone but for all the sportpersons across the country.
The recent spurt of violence at the NSU construction site can be interpreted as an attempt to foil the dream of India government to make India becoming a sports house in the world.
Now, the matter is politicised. This is being stated as people witnessing the scene are no fools. Some showed their intention of sabotaging the construction of NSU and some are curious in speedy construction of the NSU as it will also decide the fate of the Manipur Sports.
With the kind of development the deployment of state police seem to be no use for safeguarding the construction site. It is time the state government request the Union government to deploy either paramilitary force like CRPF or Assam Rifles or even the Indian army to safeguard the construction site so that no persons or community disturbed the construction of the National Asset.
