MGEL – Is it still valid?

Desperate times calls for desperate measures. It would only be fooling ourselves to think otherwise. Despite the rosy pictures and the recent indication of the Government finally waking up to the realities ,we still have a long way to trudge along and uncountable promises to be kept before we can truly call ours a stable and well-governed society- a common knowledge yet to be acknowledged by those who matters. What is still beyond comprehension and logical reasoning are some of the most baffling questions on the minds of all the thinking public- baffling as to why the problems- if one could ever term them as such- are allowed to exist in the first place. Instances likeIncreasing transparency in governance: the bitter truth can be sampled if one has the patience of a saint- to try and access information of various departments through the numerous obsolete official websites launched with much fanfare and reams being written about, updated every decade with unerring accuracy.
MGEL (Manipur Government Employee’s List): is it still valid? What is the current position of the project?  Teachers not in the list still get their pay. Relevance of such protracted exercise? If authentication and verification of employees of the Government is the target, why couldn’t it constitute a separate and dedicated body to do the work? Has the department heads and employees been apprised of the procedures and workings of PIS and EIN? Is the NIC handling the technical support as efficiently and regularly as they should?
Drugs: why haven’t any breakthrough been achieved till date regarding the source, the supply route and the people behind such mammoth hauls- a cartel that obviously enjoys the support and collusion of those in the highest echelon of power and influence? Pulling up and shoving a few pawns up our faces to earn few brownie points does not impress anyone. Everybody knows of the existence of a virus that is spreading  the vicious disease- apparently behind a wall of immunity and protection.
Sewage project: what exactly was the purpose of the whole project? When is the completion period, after factoring in the delays in funding and others? Who will be the beneficiaries? How are the sewage from private residences be connected to the main pipe- is there any provision for it at all? How about the drainage system along the roadsides that sits way above the roads seeping water down in the middle of the road and flooding stretches of otherwise perfectly good roads?
PDS (Public Distribution System) Translation- a system conjured up to efficiently distribute Government largesse and benefits amongst the people elected by the public.
Terrorism and Militancy: the most prospective and fastest growing commercial venture in the region, with the armed personnel of the State Government proving to be great catalysts (read- more armed personnel being caught posing as militants and extorting money and terrorizing the public)
Just a few of the realities facing the society today. Bottomline- it’s high time to take the velvet gloves off and deal with the issues as they should be. Things can change, and for that to happen, people entrusted with making the changes must start acting their part without further delay- or else they need to be changed.
