3 opposition MLAs today raised amendment to the motion of thanks to the Governor’s address moved by Congress MLA T. Mangibabu and MLA Ng. Bjoy Singh on the 2nd day of the 13th session of the 10th Manipur Legislative Assembly.
BJP MLA Khumukcham Joykishan while raising amendment to the motion of thanks called the governor speech as incomplete as it failed to address about the prevailing law and order of the Hill areas as well about the Scheduled Tribes community among others.
“Nothing about the Hill area of Manipur is mentioned in the governor address”, said Joykishan and further added that the certain issues like developmental issues of the Fishery department, health sector and inter village road has been left out besides wrongly mentioning the present address of RBI (temporary office) as Chingmeirong when it should be Thangmeiband .
Trinamool Congress MLA, I Ibohalbi while saying that governor address on the first day of the Assembly session of the house is the mirror of the government called the governor address as one of the ‘shortest’ address.
“We know the government is doing something but when one goes through the speech of the governor one will certainly felt that the government is doing nothing”, Ibohalbi said.
he said the ‘address’ failed to mention about the relief measures provided to the victims of the January 4 earthquake occurred with epicenter in Tamenglong district of Manipur.
“As many as 9 peoples were killed, over hundreds were injured and various properties including public and private building were damaged  in the earthquake and it is unfortunate that nothing about it is mentioned in the governor address”, Ibohalbi said.
The trinamool MLA further added that when the world community is worrying about global warming  nothing about the protection of the wetland and environment has been reflected to the governor’s address.
“people are facing acute shortage of water, tankers are seen at every roads and people are spending their saved money in buying drinking water, but the governor address has failed to mentioned the issue and the measures being taken up by the government o solve it”, Ibohalbi pointed out.
He said that there is no vision to improve the agriculture and the horticulture sector.
Except for the Sangai festival nothing has been mentioned about the improvement of the tourism sector as well as achievement of the sportspersons has not been mentioned.
NCP MLA L Ibomcha while pointing out the deficiency of commitment to the governor speech said that the governor’s address has failed to mention about the reconstitution of the Manipur Human Rights Commission, Manipur Information Commission and Manipur Public Service Commission.
He said even as the state now has a retired acting chief justice, the government has not taken up any measures to reconstitute the MHRC. On the other hand required member of the Manipur Information Commission as well as the MPSC has not been filled.
Ibomcha also raised amendment to the motion of thanks to the governor address on the ground that it failed to mention about the present law and order condition of Churachandpur district.
Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh, who is also the leader of the house while clarifying the MLAs said that as it would be time consuming to include all the matters to the governor address only those which is felt necessary has been included in the speech. he said those at which the MLAs felt left out can be discussed in the coming days.
