Imphal, July 19:

The must talk about ‘battle for power’ between the Ministers and MLAs of the state amidst terrible time due to COVID-19 pandemic has angered the Khwairamband Keithel woman.

Talking to reporters today afternoon at Khwairamband Keithel here in Imphal Th. Shanti, President of the Khwairamband Nupi Keithel Sinpham Amadi Saktam Kanba Lup, a body of the largest women market,  warns peoples’ uprising if the elected representatives do not stop their selfish act of fighting for power.

“These elected representatives should not forget that people may rise if they continue their selfish act for power when people are facing extreme suffering”, Shanti said.

The Khwairamband Keithel, which is perhaps the largest women’s market in the country, known for its uniqueness, has been shut down since March 2nd week following the COVID-19 pandemic as precautionary measures.

“Over six thousand vendor ladies who have been feeding their families are facing extreme suffering due to the shutting of the Keithel in the last 4 months”, Shanti said and added that when people across the state fear about the spread of the coronavirus at community level after frontline workers including health workers and police personnel have been tested positive, those elected representatives have gone hidden despite helping the people.

Shanti warned the elected representatives to immediately stop fighting for power among the representative by asking them to divert their mind to find solution for serving the people during this difficult time. She further said that the government should rather think about the suffering of the vendor ladies and think of a solution to open Khwairamband keithel which have been shut down for around 4 months.

While lambasting the representatives terming the act as irresponsible, the body of the Khwairamband keithel vendor ladies said that whoever involved in the drug smuggling case in the state should not be let free.
