Lack of sincerity to the part of the representatives of the local MLAs is lifting more burdens to the volunteers running the relief camps opened at various places of the state following the violence that erupted since May 3.
Displaced people due to the ongoing conflict presently taking shelter at Laisoi Relief Camp opened at Takmu Regional Water Sports Complex still have not received any essential items including food, and other items including daily usage material from the side of the government. The inmates however thank individuals and organizations like People’s Resource Development Association (PRDA) and the Action Aid Associations for conducting health camp and also for distributing essential commodities to the inmates. However, they are not happy with the representatives of the local MLAs who have been assigned for looking into the matter. Some says that assured essential items by the government that are supposed to be distributed are not reaching the inmates.
Official statement by a Cabinet Minister of Manipur Government had stated that over 50,000 people have been displaced during the violence and these displaced people are taking refuge at 349 relief camps opened across the state. Recently Chief Minister N. Biren Singh while taking stock of the condition of the people staying at relief camp felt that those people need some pocket money and started distributing a sum of Rs. 1000/- each to all inmates staying at relief camps. Besides, all district administration has been directed for distribution of the same amount to all the inmates staying at the relief camps. In addition the government has also assured essential items like foods, water, medicines and of course all require items a person needs for day today activities.
At the Laisoi Relief Camp opened at Takmu Regional Water Sports Complex there are 240 inmates. Of this 65 are under the age of 12 years and the remaining are adult including lactating mothers.
The managing committee of the relief camp drew the attention of the government to look into the problem and grievances of the inmates taking shelter at the relief camp.
