Imphal, Jan 15:
Youth’s Forum for Protection of Human Rights (YFPHR) has appealed Manipur State Commission for Women to postpone the Public Hearing on the Draft Gender Policy and Budgeting which is scheduled on the January 16 this year.
In a statement the YFPHR while appreciating the Manipur State Commission for Women for developing a Gender Policy and Budgeting which was submitted to the Government of Manipur in September, 2020, the CSOs and NGOs have not been given opportunity to express suggestions and objection as the web portal platform have been down and the commission did not provide the draft copy when sought for analysis.
The Commission had called for Suggestion/Objections and Views and Opinions from the NGOs, CSOs, Individuals and Intellectuals working in the field of Gender on the Public hearing on the Draft on Gender Policy and Budgeting which is scheduled on January, 16, 2021 at Institute of Cooperative Management Conference hall at 11:00 am.
“It was informed through a local daily January 11, 2021 that the draft policy will be available at the website of the Commission, however, the website remained down until today as a result the duration provided to the CSOs and NGOs for analyzing the Draft Policy was very short. Besides representatives of the YFPHR visited the office of the Hon’ble Commission, we were not provided a copy of the said Draft Policy”, Phajaton , the president of the organization said.
The Forum urged the Commission to extend the said hearing scheduled on the January 16, 2020 and provide a minimum of 10 days for analyzing the said Draft Policy to make a comprehensive and effective Policy for the state of Manipur.
