Influential persons attempt to occupy portion of land allotted to RIMS at Lamphel

Imphal, July 30,

Some influential persons are making all attempts to occupy a portion of land measuring 33.78 acres inside the premises of Regional Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) Imphal.

The matter came to light after one Imphal-based newspaper reported about the presence of a pond inside RIMS complex. When a team of Imphal Times grill the matter as follow-up story, almost all the report seems true except the fact that it was not the RIMS authority that has been digging the pond, but a group of influential persons who are members of an NGO called The Popular Pisciculture Association that has been trying to occupy the land belonging to RIMS.

On the morning of July 23, the Director of RIMS along with all the Head of Departments met Chief Minister N. Biren Singh to discuss over the issue.

Some members of the PPA were also present on the occasion the source from the Chief Minister’s office added.

The details of the conversation that took place in the presence of the Chief Minister could not be known.

However, as per source, the members of the PPA drew the attention of the Chief Minister and tried to convince him that the 33.78 acres of land inside the RIMS belong to them by showing some documents and presenting a slide show.

But then the Director of RIMS flatly rejected the claim saying that the state government had allotted 108.384 acres of land already in the occupation of RIMS and another 93.46 acres of state land (including 65.64 acres of Pattaland of Mechanised Farm) in favour of the Director RIMS for upgradation to the status of AIIMS, New Delhi in 2007.

The Chief Minister and other officials of the government departments seem to understand the problem with the issue raised by the RIMS team.

RIMS, at present,  is under the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and no land can be acquired without proper order from the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
