Imphal, Oct. 28,
The Thadou Students’ Association, General Headquarters (TSA-GHQ) and Rongmei Naga Students’ Association, North East India (RNSO-NEI) expressed strong displeasure with the recent imbroglio over Eklavya Model Residential School (EMRS) in the state. In the consultative meeting held yesterday at Manipur Press Club, Imphal and after deliberate discussion, both the TSA and RNSO came to learn that the recent crisis over financial lapses for EMRSs was due to disagreement between the School Management Committee of the three EMRSs, Tribal Affairs and Hills Department and Finance Department of the state government. While the School Management Committee of the three EMRSs in the state should have not threatened to shut down the schools to the panic of student bodies and parents, the government authorities should have done the needful in a timely manner to avoid any inconvenience to the functioning of the schools. The meeting resolved the need for a permanent solution. “There is urgent need for a direct direct funding of the EMRS by the Union Ministry of Tribal Affairs because there is no state share in the funding, which is purely a grant-in-aid to the state government as per article 275(1) of the Indian constitution by the Government of India. As such, we urge the Ministry of Tribal Affairs to look into the matter immediately for a permanent solution”, Th e meeting resolved.
