Imphal, Aug 26
The illegal survey currently conducting in Kharungpat of Kakching since 23rd of this month by Niranjoy, who calls himself as S.O. Kakching, should be immediately stopped. This was stated by the Citizens’ Association for Rural Development, an apex body of 12 clubs in Wabagai.
A statement signed by M. Manishwar, Secretary CARD, said that there has been continuous struggle for years with the government to keep Kharungpat as a lake and as a wetland to preserve water.
Even now, the lake is included in the shortlisting of lake preservation. Various memorandums have also been submitted to the concerned minister, Karam Shayam, and Chief Minister, N. Biren. Therefore, S.O. Niranjoy is trying to collect money by cheating on some people.
CARD Wabagai said that there is no village called Kharungpat and no attempt can be made to build a village on the lake.
The statement further said that not even an inch can be taken from the area of 1600 acres. In case anything happens against the wishes of CARD Wabagai and the people, CARD Wabagai is all prepared to take up various steps along with the people. It also draws the attention of the Chief Minister of Manipur to look into the matter.
