Imphal, March 9: Armed rebel group Maoist Communist Party Manipur has warned the Catholic schools in the state for their stand against the indigenous people of the state.
In a statement, the outfit said that the Catholic schools are trying to avoid participation of the indigenous people in the school administration so that the administration can be done by the non-Manipuris. Maoist said such a stand is against the interest of the indigenous people of the state.
It said, the Maoist never interfere to the religious activities of the Catholic missionaries but cannot accept administration of the Catholic Schools without the participation of the indigenous people.
The rebel group also blamed the Nirmalabas, Little Flower and St. Joshep Schools in Imphal for collecting huge amount of money in the name of admission.
“These 3 schools (Nirmalabas, LFS and St. Joshep) selected only about 100 students on lottery for new admission and allowed other 200 on quotas to CSOs  and others who came through the Bishop. The CSOs were allowed only 2 seat each”, the statement said.  
On the other hand the Maoist statement said that admission fee for the Catholic School Canchipur is only Rs. 3600 but Nirmalabas, LFS and St. Joshep took nearly Rs. 6000 as admission fee per student.
The Maoist said that it had already warned regarding the rampant corruption on admission and also negligence to indigenous people 10 days back. As no positive response is being received from the school authority the outfit will take a decision in consultation with the indigenous people of the state on what action should be taken up. The outfit further said any unwanted consequences should be the responsibility of the Bishops who had come from outside the state.
