Imphal, Feb 29: Whether the present government lead by Chief Minister N.Biren Singh have some concerns about the rights of the children in the state is not known as the government fails to act on the unwanted things happening in the Manipur Commission for Protect of Child Rights.
A case has been filed in the High Court over the appointment of the Chairperson identified as Sunitibala Ningthoujam. Interestingly Sunitibala Ningthoujam is a graduate in music.
On the other hand the statutory body which is established for protection of child rights has received complaints from a University for creating inconveniences to the girl students by its staffs. Following that a meeting convened by the members of the MCPCR decided to take up action against the said staff being complaint but the Chairman standing by the side of the employee hold back the action supposed to be taken against the staff.
Following that in February middle week the members of the MCPCR boycotted the Chairperson. Since then there is communication gap between the chairperson who have degree in music and those of the members. No commendable works for the protection of the child rights have been taken up.
On the other hand, on her certificate, the chairperson has been recorded as Lourembam  Sunitibala while the government order which appointed her as chairperson released the appointment order in the name of Sunitibala Ningthoujam.
