Even though the present government has been claiming to focus on educational institution launching ‘School Fagathanshi Mission’ but is a complete failure at Jiribam.

Addressing in a press meet held at Manipur Press Club President of All Manipur Muslim Girl Students Union (AMMUGSU) Khuleibam Rukshar Choudhury said that during the overall field visit to Jiribam on March 9 by their organisation along with All Manipur Muslim Women Development Organisation focusing on the issue of education and development, they find that the state of education and development is a complete mess.

She said that the only way to communicate the people is through Bengali and added that there isn’t any teacher which teaches Meetei Mayek in schools. The students were taught Bengali as their MIL. She appealed the Education minister as well as the government to implement a policy where Meetei Mayek becomes a compulsory subject to teach from Lower Primary to High School. She feared that Manipuri which is the mother language will surely be extinct from the area.

She added that the school conditions are in deplorable state, students can’t attend school even because of the lack of capacity. She further said that as most of the people don’t have a fine income the people of Jiribam like to attend in government school more than the private school which is a complete contrast done in Imphal and other areas. There is a huge difference between the teacher and student ratio and the school doesn’t have a principal but administered under an in-charge, she added.

She also said that they have seen a peon taking the role from principal to the level of Chowkidar.

Regarding Jiribam College Rukshar said that the teacher completed hastily the syllabus of the semester which is to be taught in 6 months in just 3 months and make themselves free for the remaining 3 months. And many of the students drop out because of inability to afford the fees.

She further added that the people weren’t aware of the various scholarship facilities given to them and weren’t known about the details of various schemes.

Rukshar further said that the local leaders clarified regarding the viral clips in the social media during the renewal of election roll that as the people to be enrolled were accompanied by family members, it seemed to be a mammoth gathering. She further appealed the government as well as the CSO to identify the people whether indigenous or non-indigenous.

Due to the deplorable conditions of the road, various inconveniences have occurred to the people and also it increases the drop out from their education.

 She further appealed the Chief Minister, Education Minister and related authorities to visit Jiribam and oversee the most underdeveloped area of Manipur.

She further warned that if the concerned authorities don’t take up proper action to enhance the most under developed region than they are well prepared for an intense agitation.

It can be mentioned that the educational institution in the region are Gorchand high School, Lanpani High School, Kasimpur L.P School, Kasimpur Aided junior High School, Jiribam Higher Secondary and Jiribam College.
