Congress legislature, Rajkumar Imo Singh has slammed the mainstream media for its bias attitude towards Northeast and failure to report the massive earthquake in Manipur that jolted on Monday morning.
Many lives have been lost in Manipur and other Northeastern states of India due to the natural calamity, the MLA of Sagolband Assembly Constituency told exclusively to NeLive.in while visiting different quake-hit places under his Assembly Constituency on Monday.
“We the people of Northeast India wish that, apart from giving full coverage there (Pathankot airbase attack), the Indian mainstream media shows some concern to the earthquakes affected in Manipur and other Northeastern states,” said RK Imo.
While stating that the people of Northeast are deeply concerned with the recent attacks at Pathankot airbase by terrorists and pray for the lives lost, the MLA appealed the mainstream media specially TV News channels to give bit more overage in detail to what has happened in Manipur and other Northeastern states of this country, where many lives have been lost and so many properties have been destroyed due the worst earthquake.
This is a time of grief for all and should stand united together and help each other side by side. There should be any political dram by blaming at such time of grief, as this a natural calamity and no one could stop this force of nature now or in future, the MLA appealed to all, and he said, “Manipur will emerge stronger than ever before this earthquake.”
The earthquake that jolted at 6.8 Richter scale affected some dwelling houses at Wahengbam Leikai, Moirang Leirak Machin and other parts of Sagolband Assembly Constituency in Imphal West district. During the visit, the MLA assured the affected families of Wahengbam Leikai to extend all possible help personally from his side as well as from the government through concerned authorities.
Meeting the locals of Moirang Leirak, Imo also assured to rebuild the temple situated at Moirang Leirak Machin, which was badly damaged by the earthquake, and affected portions of Community Hall of Moirang Leirak Chawungbam Mapa.
