Imphal, May 20:

Amidst criticism over loopholes in receiving the returned stranded Manipuris from outside the state in the backdrop of the nationwide lockdown measures taken up to contain the spread of the COVID -19 Pandemic, family members of the stranded Manipuris who have returned to the state expressed dissatisfaction with the way that officials are managing the reception of the returnees.

A family member said that her son who returned from Mumbai and reached Imphal today have to go here and there for around 6 hours as the authority failed to give them accommodation at any of the quarantine centers. He said 10 persons who reached Imphal today at around 9.30 am have to wait till 2 pm today without food as they were not accommodated at any quarantine center.

Ten people – 6 from Imphal west, 2 from Imphal East, 1 from Thoubal and another from Bishnupur boarded a vehicle from Bandra in Mumbai of Maharashtra, four days back and reached Mao at around 3 am today. After being screened at Mao gate by the state government authority at around 6 am they then proceeded towards Imphal and reached Model College quarantine center at around 9 am. They were reportedly made to wait for hours without giving them any food besides informing that they haven’t had a full meal for four days when they were on the journey. Inspite of listening to them they were reportedly taken to UNACCO School where a community quarantine center has been opened. What irked the family members is that, after reaching the UNACCO school quarantine center, they were again told to wait as there were no rooms available there too. At around 1.30 pm they remained waiting for the authority to arrange accommodation at any quarantine center without food.

Family members of the returnees questioned the authority over the management in receiving the returned stranded Manipuris to the state from outside the state.
