Thoubal Sept. 12: Reacting to a recent statement during a public meeting by the MLA of Wangjing Tentha Kendra that almost all rural roads within Wangjing area have been widened upto 20 feet and are black-topped, Dynamic Youth Development Front-(DYDF)- an association of youths from Wangjing and Kairembikhok have strongly denied the claim, cautioning the MLA to refrain from deceiving the public as the association claims that so far only 2 out of 37 rural roads have been black-topped.  During a press meet organized by Dynamic Youth Development Front-(DYDF)Wangjing yesterday, Secretary Chongtham Suranjoy disclosed that Wangjing Tentha Kendra MLA Paonam Brojen recently claimed that almost all the roads and lanes around Wangjing have been widened upto 20 feet and are black-topped, adding that those lanes which is not ready to be widened will not be developed. Suranjoy also states that except for Wangjing Laikol leirak in which the residence of the MLA is located and another lane, none of the rural roads or lanes has been black-topped so far. Terming the statement of the representative of the people as deceiving and unfortunate, the spokesperson urged the immediate implementation of the claim made by the MLA so that the long-suffered public of the area can find relief.
Suranjoy also said that the ongoing road-repairing work around Wangjing Lamding Munipal Council Area after PDA sanctioned Rs16.66 crore should be looked into as the number of roads mentioned in the plan differed greatly with the actual number of lanes and rural roads in the area with additional raods being added to the list, saying that the money sanctioned for the additional roads be utilized for the benefit of the public. 
The Secretary of DYDF also disclosed that the MLA has indulged in unfair practices while dealing with distribution of food grains under NFSA. The scheme which was launched to ensure availability of 5kgs of rice for every members of a household above the age of 5 has been disregarded, instead distributing the allotted rice according to the Voter list. The Govt appointed Agents were not allowed to carry out the distribution work, instead handing over the job to the dear and near ones of the MLA. The spokesperson concluded that if the distribution of rice is not carried out according to the norms of the NFSA, DYDF will take up various forms of agitation with the support of the public.
