Imphal, June 7,
Armed rebel group Maoist Communist Party Manipur in a statement said that the earlier warning against the conduct of Housie has been misinterpreted.
“Most of the leaders of the Maoist have their background from running local clubs or organizations and the Maoist knows that charity show of Courtyard play, organizing live concert and conducting housei are some means to collect fund for organizations like clubs and other civil society bodies”, the Maoist statement signed by Kyonghan Mangang,, Coordinator, Standing Committee, Maoist Communist Party-Manipur said.
The statement however said that, the outfit only warns unfair means to the conduct of housie by cheating the public.
After the ban on such has been announced, many local clubs, organizations and other individuals had approached the outfit to restrain such decision to ban housie as it is the means for fund drive of local clubs or organization which has been doing work for upliftment of the society.
The statement further said that fund drive for the club for taking up good work of the locality either by organizing housie or by organizing courtyard play or live concert by selling ticket will be supported by the outfit as long as the said do not use unfair means and cheat the people. It further added that the party had not imposed any ban on housie by local clubs or organizing concert or courtyard play for fund drive.
