Condemning the government’s action of acquiring the play field of Lairenpat Sport’s Complex to build Electricity Go-down the JAC against the acquisition of Lairenpat Sport’s Complex today boycott MLA, Amin Shah and Manipur Congress Party.
Addressing a press conference today at Manipur Press Club, Imphal, President of the JAC, Sougrakpam Khogen said that the land of Lairenpat Sport’s Complex which lies between Vamon Kampu Awang Leikai and Naharup Huirem Leikai has been an important land to the locals since a long time. Without giving prior notification workers of the government came and measured the land to build Electricity Go-down. He said that they had submitted a memorandum to Amin Shah, MLA, Khetrigao constituency on 30th Sep, 2014 against the government action and to hand over the land back to the people. He added that the locals were given assurance by Amin Shah to make an alternate arrangement of land on 03rd Nov, since then they could not have a word with him. Hence the JAC has decided to intensify agitation and starting from today the MLA, Amin Shah and Manipur Congress Party have been boycotted, added Khogen.
The matter was put up for discussion by MLA Shyamkumar during the state Assembly session today as a matter of public interest. Shyamkumar said the government needs to revoke the order of allotment of land for construction of storeroom and offices of MSPCL/PWD Mechanical Division at Lairenpat playground in Kshetrigao Assembly Constituency on the ground that the play ground is the only play field of the surroundings.
Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh while replying the matter said that there is turning back of the government decision to construct the go-down but said that he be happy if the MLA co-operate the government in looking after another play field of the of locality as the decision has already be taken. Chief Minister further said that the field is a low area and government machinery had thoroughly checked about any objection which may be raised. He said there was no objection at first and it came only after the procedure has been completed. He said the present go-down at JNIMS campus need to be shifted as the MCI is inspecting it in the month of January or February. If the go-down at JNIMS complex has not been shifted there is likely that the Medical Council of India may cancel its recognition.
