Open letter to the Chief Minister of Manipur

Respected Sir,

Delhi Manipuri society (DeMaS) would like to convey its sincere gratitude for your timely actions in the fight against COVID 19, which have, reassuringly, enabled the State to be free from the dreaded pandemic. DeMaS has also been making its best efforts to supplement Government initiatives in alleviating the difficulties, many Manipuris in Delhi-NCR have faced. Affected nurses in the line of duty are provided financial assistance to encourage their morale. Some Relief dry rations are handed over to Manipur Bhavan, Delhi for onward distribution to needy people. With its dedicated executives and volunteers, we are also directly distributing daily essentials to those who could not be reached by other helplines.
We also applaud your timely intervention to bring back the stranded Manipuris, spread across the Country through rail and road transport.
In this regard, DeMaS would like to state that, among those stranded in the Delhi-NCR, there are many who are infirm, aged and small kids. Some of them may find it risky to travel by road or rail, for a distance more than two thousand kilometres, including unfavourable terrain to reach Imphal, which may last upto 4/5 days.
It has also been learnt from the Media that Government of Manipur has requested the Central Government to permit airlifting of stranded Manipuris. DeMas is very thankful for such a move and request the Government to make such an arrangement possible at the earliest. The persons opting for air travel to return their homeland may be considered to charge a reasonable/concessional fare if the financial burden on the State is huge.

With warm regards
N. Shyamkishwor Singh
