Imphal, Aug 26: JAC against the Construction of Yairipok Aided High school said that the committee has filed a petition with the Manipur high court seeking justice regarding ‘unauthorised ‘declaration of holiday for three days by local MLA.
JAC convenor Ksh. Ito while talking to reporters at Manipur press club today said that students and guardians of the Yairipok aided high school have been protesting against the government move to construct a power substation inside the school campus for the last three months.
Altogether 15 students underwent fast unto death agitation. Eight students have been detained at juvenile home. Despite stiff opposition from the students and local people, government still continues to construct the power station under strict security deployment in the school campus by clamping 144 CrPc, he said.
The JAC convenor said that parliamentary secretary K Meghachandra who is also incumbent local MLA declared three days holiday for the school from July 20 to July 23 at his will so as to prevent any disruption while constructing the foundation of the power station. The power to declare school holiday lies with the ZEO or authority of education dept, not the legislature.
He said that a petition was filed with the court challenging the authority of MLA on declaration of holiday.
Rebutting the claim of MLA Meghachandra stating that the area where the proposed power substation would be constructed is a khasland area, the JAC convenor maintained that the proposed construction site falls under pattaland of the school. He alleged that the local MLA has misled the people through fabricated statements.
He asserted that JAC will continue its agitation until government rescinds its decision to construct power substation while reaffirming the stand to boycott the MLA and members of the school committee who signed the agreement.
