Imphal, July 22: Democratic Students Alliance of Manipur (DESAM) has appealed All Manipur Written Test Successful Candidate of Police Constable Male, 2013 to withdraw its proposed 24-hour bandh called from the midnight of July 23 to midnight of July 24 in view of the upcoming AIPMT (All India Pre-Medical Test)/ NEET (National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test)-2 scheduled to be held on July 24 across the country.
Speaking to media persons, General Secretary of DESAM Head Office, Nameirakpam Edison during a press meet held today at its Keishampat office, said that around 5000 candidates from the state would be taking the medical entrance test at around 10 centers spread across Manipur.
When the bandh affected the examination, who will take the responsibility of the students who could not attend the all India Medical Entrance examination owing to the proposed bandh, asked the General Secretary of DESAM.
He also reiterated that DESAM has been demanding to stop imposing bandh and creating public awareness consistently on the negative aspects of bandh to public specially the working class and student’s community.
Despite of repeated appeals and efforts to restrain bandh, various bodies are persistently imposing bandh, general strike and public curfew in order to achieve their demand. The statistics shows the tendencies of the people’s mindset and opting bandh as the last resort to attain their goals. Unfortunately, different JACs and bodies have called bandh across the state this year almost in a daily basis affecting the student’s community at large, Edison said, while expressing concern of DESAM over the prevailing dreadful trend of bandh culture even for trifling issues.
In a bid to control bandh, the General Secretary of the students’ body said that after all its efforts to bring bandh under control turned futile, DESAM has decided to file PIL against imposing bandh by any individual and bodies in the state of Manipur for any reason.
While, he also demanded the state government to formulate an anti-bandh regulation to make Manipur a bandh free state.
