The Naga Chiefs/Chairmen Association, 42 – Tengnoupal Assembly Constituency warned to impose bandh along a section of Imphal – Moreh Highway if the concerned authority fails to provide the misappropriated National Food Security Act (NSFA) rice within October 15.
In a Press Statement signed by its General Secretary SK Angshel and President L. Moshil Maring, the Naga Chiefs/Chairmen Association 42 – Tengnoupal  A/C stated that  as several complaints were received  from the beneficiaries of NFSA particularly from Machi and Tengnoupal Block, the Association enquired thoroughly and found that huge quantities of rice were misappropriated since 2016.
In 2016, rice for 4 months only were distributed to the beneficiaries and the remaining were misappropriated by the agents. Likewise, rice for 5 months each in 2017 & 2018 and only for 6 months were distributed during 2019.
Misappropriation of rice was done by two FPS agents of Machi – M. Mosingam and Tengnoupal Block – T. Angkhul in collaboration with DSO Chandel – Halim, Store Keeper – Mohendro Singh and contractors concerned, the Association alleged.
The association further stated that 06 truckloads of rice for the beneficiaries of the said two block were released every month from FCI/FCS godown located at Sangaiprou,Imphal. But such huge quantities of rice were missing in between Imphal – Kakching Lamkhai and Tuishimi Village where it was unloaded for distribution to each Sub-Centres.
While urging the concerned authority to provide the misappropriated quotas of rice within 15th October 2019, the Naga Chiefs/Chairmen Association also warned to launch agitation by imposing bandh along NH 102 (Imphal-Moreh road) with the support of all card holders/beneficiaries of NFSA.
