Imphal, Nov 4: The United Naga Council opposes state government move to establish Sports University by acquiring homestead and prime agricultural lands of Koijam Maring amd Laiching Minou Maring Villages. In a press statement issued by the Publicity Wing of the UNC, the decision is termed a form of deprivation from the means of livelihood on the pretext of setting up Sports University. The statement further said that the UNC does not oppose any initiatives to bring development and infrastructure by any agencies. However the acquisition of the agricultural and homestead land will lead to rendering the villagers homeless and landless, and therefore without the only means of livelihood. When there are so many other suitable sites for a sport university, insisting on the said area land in spite of protest by the people, both in written and civil actions, is a reflection of an ulterior and anti people motive on the part of the State Government, the statement added.   

Meanwhile, land owners of Yaithibi Loukon too organised a press conference denouncing the government decision to acquire land at the proposed site for construction of the Sports University. The matter has been drawn attention of the Prime Minister by sending a memorandum. It said that the state government is trying to acquire the 642 acres of land for establishment of the Sports University without following the procedures of land acquisition. In the press conference held today at Manipur Press Club President of the  44- Yaithibi Loukon Land Owners’ Association, MD Allimuddin said that the association will resort to serious form of agitation against the decision. Earlier the association had called 48 hour bandh along the National Highway 102 from 6 pm November 5 till 6 pm of November 7. MD Allimuddin said that there is no change to the bandh called as government has not given any positive response to the demand of the people.
