Imphal, June 27: Hundreds of homeguard personnel took out a massive rally to highlight their demands but their march towards chief minister ’s of fice was disrupted midway as a strong team of City Police blocked them near BT Park and forcefully dispersed them. The homeguard personnel who had been agitating for a quite a long time commenced their rally from Manipur Homeguard Headquarter at Lamphel, Shija Hospital road, at around 11 am demanding increment on duty allowance as per the directives given by the Supreme Court. On Friday , they had observed a sit-in- protest at the same place to highlight their demand. Company commander Md Tombi said the association of homeguards has been demanding an increase in their duty allowances as per the directive of the Supreme Court on March 11, 2015 but neither the concerned department nor the state government have taken up any positive step. The personnel are given a meager Rs 5000 as their monthly salary which they rightly claim is insufficient in running their families and consequents they are encountering family crisis. The homeguards are performing their duties not less seriously than any other branch of the state police force, he said added that despite the number of agitation and protest rally , none of the concerned department or the state government have come up with any solution, Md Tombi complained. The homeguards had warned the administration of different forms of agitations if their demands are not heeded.
