Imphal, Sept 14: Man has reached the moon and successfully returned back, India has been sent numerous satellites in the space spending billions of money but fails to focus on eradicating poverty and development of remote villages and old aged persons of the country.
Likewise, Tanrui (Leisan) a remote village under Ukhrul District, Manpiur, many elderly persons have been left far aside, unknown to today’s government who sought for developing the remote places and providing all kinds of facilities to the elderly persons only in mouth but when it comes to work, none.
Born in the midst of winter and summer of 1914, As Fashang, a 105 years old elder person waits for support from state government.
As Fashang, who is now so old that he has not received any facilities from the government side. Many concern persons have come to him promising to avail all kinds of government ads and programs but none have turn up so far realizing him not to trust and proceed from such cocks and bulls promises.
During the youth days, As Fashang witness the horrific WW2 battle during fought between Japanese troops and allied forces in the year 1944 which occurred in Manipur.
As Fashang once a resident of Champhung Village, now settle with his elder grandson who lives with his wife and five children of his elders’ son at Tanrui also known as Leisan since 1953.
As Fashang, who barely walks with a support of a walking stick and hardly hears had five sons and three daughters.
Only to wait for a miracle to happen for As Fashang is the only hope for his family.
We have heard and knows that “the Department of Social Welfare under the State government has taken up various welfare programmes in the social welfare sector especially for the weaker sections of the society which also provides welfare programmes for persons with disabilities, integrated child protection schemes, women and child development including supplementary nutrition programmes and other development schemes including Manipur Old Age Pension Scheme under which old persons are given monthly pension.”
Are this very facilities and schemes of the Social welfare, does it really implement to the remote villages, elderly persons of the state?
Hardly few might avail the scheme but how about the rest?
Never the late, it is time to seek for the rights of the elderly people of the state who still reside at the remote parts of the state whose rights to avail the government ads and schemes have been desecrated with fake promises.
It is not the first and last of such true story……
