Representatives of the Youth’s Forum for Protection of Human Rights (YFPHR), Youth’s Action Committee for Protection of Indigenous Peoples (YACPIP), Young People for Social Reform (YPSR), Khangabok Development and Students’ Union (KDASU), Chandonpokpi Youth Forum (CYF), Sunushiphai Youth Welfare Association (SYWA) were reportedly detent by police near Sanjenthong area yesterday while coming towards the Chief Minister office for submitting memorandum in connection with the price hike of fuel.
The said organization after discussing the matter at the conference hall of Human Rights Initiative, Imphal East marched towards the CMO for submission of the memorandum. The memorandum urged government to urgently to cut down the prices of the essential commodities and that of the petroleum product immediately
It also urged to recognize the suffering of the poor and respect their right to life.
A statement of the organizations said that the unbearable price hike directly burdens the poor section of the society who earns for their living for a day such as rickshaw pullers, vegetable vendors, school van drivers, auto drivers, small shops and hotels owners, domestic workers, potters, etc. In order to overcome the same, ones borrow money from the money lenders at high-interest rate which further leads to many unwanted social activities due to unable to repay, unwanted activities such as domestic violence, drug abuse, illegal drug or arms transportation, flesh trade etc. which is a sad reality.
On the other hand due to hike in fuel price the fare of the public transportation also increases as a result the students and many others are also suffering due to not able to bear the fare and failed to meet their destination for earning and educational institutions. Many people who are dependent on the public transportation suffers huge as they bear double the price in every intervals to reach their destination.
Learning from the scenario as cited above, the main reason for the price hike of the essential commodities is due to the increase in transportation charges as the price of the petroleum products have sky rocketed.
