All Tribal Rights’ Protection Forum Manipur (ATRPFM) in a statement said that some tribal people residing at Checkon and Konung Mamang areas under Wangkhei Assembly constituency, Imphal East have been excluded from availing the rations and other essential commodities.
The statement said that Aadhar Cards were collected from the tribal tenants of the area but when the items are distributed, they were told it was only for card holders.  It is also learnt that in some areas like Dewlahland, tenants were left unattended and only householders are recognized for providing rations and other items, the statement added.
“Not any kind of assistance were given for these helpless tenants who are not voters except 2 koktas / rasgula tins of rice per head with some grams of dal availed by some tenants through Tribal Tenants Committee, Imphal by its own approached to the concerned authorities, otherwise even 2, 3 Kgs of rice might not have been given to the tenants which is a grave concern for us”, the statement issued by James Haokip, General Secy. of ATRPFM said.
The ATRPFM said that excluding the tenants in getting their share during crisis time on political ground is morally wrong and also inhumane on the part of the concerned authorities as disease epidemic has nothing to do with politics but it is purely a question of survival for all the inhabitants of the areas.
The ATRPFM appealed the Chief Minister and Minister (TA&Hills) and the Chief Secretary, Govt. of Manipur to make a separate arrangement for the tribal tenants who are residing in valley areas as a matter of compulsion and necessity, for these tenants have no any source of survival because they were left unattended by the system.
