Proscribed group Revolutionary People’s Front (RPF), which is waging war against the government of India today showed serious concern to some individuals who always think of making profit even during the time of crisis.
A statement by Roben Khuman, Secretary Publicity, RPF, said that at a time when the people of the state are confined to their home to make sure that the chain of the dreaded coronavirus is contained, Manipur government has been doing extraordinary work to make sure that people do not suffer during lockdown period. Health workers, Manipur Police, CSOs, Students bodies etc. have been rendering service to help the government in containing the spread of the COVID-19.
The RPF salute medical staff for bringing back to normalcy to the first COVID-19 affected 23 year old girl and the party expressed full faith to the medical fraternity in curing the second positive patient. The outfit, however, said that when all the people have been working hard to contain the virus and when the state is in need of medicines and equipments (PPEs), masks and other essential daily needs some individuals who only think of making money are transporting betel leaves by hiring Cargo flight.
The RPF taking the matter with extreme seriousness appealed the traders not to repeat such act in the future. The outfit also appealed to the truck drivers who are transporting non-indigenous people from outside the state to immediately stop bringing them to Manipur. Issuing of ILPS has been suspended and that those non-local whom they smuggled may create a catastrophe in the state as they may turn out to be carrier of the virus.
The state also appreciated the government in its effort to protect the state from the dreaded virus when most developed countries are facing extreme difficulties in controlling the disease.
When a country like Spain, Italy USA have risen the number of the positive case, the state of Manipur have reported only two cases at which one had been cured. The RPF thank the government for taking up such precautionary measures.
