Imphal, June 17: The 14 Sikh Regiment has approached the state Government through the DC of Tamenglong for utilization of school structure as their camp. A reliable input from our source informed Imphal Times that in a letter No. 3033/14-SIKH/Q dated 21/4/16 from the Commanding Officer, 14 Sikh Regiment requested the Deputy Commissioner Tamenglong for utilization of Jawahar Bal Bhavan at Awangkhul, Tamenglong District. In this regard, a senior officer of the state government wrote to the DC seeking his comments. It may be mentioned that Tamenglong District in Manipur is one of the most backward districts with very poor road connectivity and absence of public amenities especially infrastructures such as schools and educational institutions. Also, the district is infested by militants particularly ZUF, NSCM-IM, NSCM-K etc with frequent encounters between the rival groups and also with the security forces. The present approach of the Sikh Regiment is observed as a decision to re-establish its presence and strengthen the position of the Indian security forces for the sake of security and an effort to bring tranquility and peace. However, there has been an increasing outcry over the security forces occupying educational institutions and converting the school structures as their camp depriving the children of the area from getting their education.
