Imphal, Dec 3
Expressing strong condemnation to the action of M Binota, who is the Chairperson of Manipur State Commission for Women at which she allegedly forced a lady to sign a divorce deed on November 26, the Youth’s Forum for Protection of Human Rights (YFPHR) had submitted memorandums to the Governor, Chief Minister and Social Welfare Minister of Manipur for termination of the lady from the post of the Chairperson.
In a press communiqué the YFPHR said that the action of the Chairperson of of Manipur State Commission for Women, M Binota is actually not empowered under the powers and function of the Hon’ble Commission.
“ We condemn the action of acting like a Family Court by the Chairperson of MSCW and highly suspect that the Chairperson was acting on her vested interest but not as per the principles of the Commission”, the statement said.
The statement of the YFPHR said that the Commission has been established for the upliftment and welfare of women who are deprived of their rights in the state of Manipur, however, series of action since the 26th of November, 2019 until yesterday by the Chairperson is been observed to demoralise, victimise and to suppress the woman without addressing the root causes.
“We fear that if such action by the Chairperson is continued than the general masses will not trust the highest institution of women of the state, therefore, we appeal the Governor, Chief Minster and Social Welfare Minister to Terminate the Chairperson for her incompetency to discharge its duty, and be terminated under the Section 4 (3) of the Gazette of Government of Manipur after the enactment of “The National Commission for Women Act, 1990” by exercising the Power of the State Government”, the statement added.
