Non availability of textbooks prescribed by Board of Secondary Education, Manipur, (BOSEM,) despite commencement of academic sessions, which has been a recurring issue in the State in the past few years has been highlighted in the state assembly on Thursday.

Rajkumar Imo, opposition and Congress MLA during the zero hour in the assembly informed the house that it is most unfortunate and is a big failure even after most of the Government schools have commenced sessions for around a month and majority of the private schools have conducted around 3 weeks back of its academic session. But the issue of non availability of school textbooks remains unchanged.
On the other hand, various outfits in the state have also drawn the attention of the concerned authorities within this purview for the past many weeks.
“Manipur is in deals with shortage of text book,” president of the All Manipur Students’ Union (AMSU) Manjit Sarangthem warned the authorities concerned of launching various forms of agitation because of failure to provide the prescribed textbooks for elementary school level upto the High School level. He threatened that the students’ body will launch stir if the books in demands are not made available in the markets within the next February end.
