Imphal,Sept.9: A delegate of Manipuri Youth Front Assam (MYFA) on Friday called on Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh and highlighted various issues faced by the Manipuris settling in Assam.
The MYFA delegation was led by its president Seram Herajit and secretary general Fanjoubam Lokenath.
During the meeting, Manipur chief minister  reportedly assured the team that a FM Radio station would be established in Jiribam soon.
The chief minister also assured to consider their demands regarding establishment of a cultural complex cum Library in Silchar to protect and promote Manipuri rich culture  and construction of a guest house in Imphal for the Manipuri visitors from outside to Imphal.
A memorandum was also submitted to the Manipur chief minister, seeking his help in resolving the grievances of the Manipuris settling outside.
MYFA, in its memorandum, urged the chief minister to  construct a Manipuri Bhavan at Rongpur, Silchar Assam without further delay.
“Despite the allotment of the land to the government of Manipur in Rongpur Silchar for the construction of Manipuri Bhavan, the land is yet to be utilized for the construction of the same since 2009. Construction of such a Bhavan is in utmost need in Silchar.
As many as 600 students, teachers, government employees, business men and women etc. are facing tremendous problems due to lack of convenient accommodation and hospitalities for the transit to meet their needs.
As the road from Imphal-Silchar-Imphal is in terrible condition, it takes a lot of time while passing through the national highway during rainy season, causing severe inconveniences to the travelers, particularly the woman and children who are pursuing their studies in Silchar and Imphal in terms of their accommodation and fooding,” MYFA president Seram Herajit said.
He informed that as many as 500 loaded trucks carrying livestock to Manpur are passing via Silchar. The drivers who are sacrificing their life to serve the people of Manipur are also facing hardships due to lack of accommodation for their Transit to Imphal.
The problem could be experienced on the side of the road mainly during economic blockade being called u[pon by different pressure groups in Manipur, he added.
He said, “ since we have been travelling Imphal being a Manipuri born outside, we face problems in Imphal due to lack of dedicated accommodation for the Manipuris residing outside.
The elders who are visiting Imphal to get blessing of Kangla, Koubru, Marjing, Shri Shri Govindaji temple face problems in terms of accommodation and fooding.
Since the Manipuri community residing outside consider Kangleipak as the ancestral land and origin of the Manipuris, sense of belongingness and attachment with the outside Manipuri community and Manipur need to be strengthened so as to maintain unity and integrity among the Manipuri community as a whole.
The body also demanded the chief minister to establish a full-fledged 24×7 Manipuri satellite channel so as the Manipuris residing across the globe can access to Manipuri programme.
