Through your esteem daily, I’m to bring to the notice of the general public and the concerned authority as well about the problem associated with the constitution of the management committee of the Tribal Market, New Lambulane, Imphal.
That ever since the tribal market, New Lambulane starts one problem that has always affects its smooth functioning is matter relating to its management committee. Many times, the matter has been brought to the notice of the concerned authority, but no solution has been brought out till date. The latest one being the order no. 34/20/2017 TA(T/MKT) dated 26 Oct, 2017 issued by the deputy secretary wherein it was stated the 9 (nine) vendor representative be nominated by the government. Accordingly 9 (nine) vendor representative were selected from amongst the member irrespective of tribe, caste or locality affiliated and the same was forwarded to the principal secretary (TA &Hills) government of Manipur on dated 16/11/2017 for nomination. But much to the surprise of all, it was learnt from reliable sources, that the minister of the concerned department has stated that he would nominate 9 (nine) vendor representatives as per his wish and not necessarily from the list supplied by the vendor association.
His verbal statement is being viewed with suspicious and is very unbecoming of a democratically elected people’s representative.
As a follow-up action, the vendor association stage a sit in protest recently on 22nd Jan, 2018 at the complex itself demanding an early settlement of the issue. The Vendor association has also decided to oppose tooth and nail in case a management committee is constituted by nominating any other person other than from the list supplied by the vendor association.
The vendor association further resolve to agitate and fight to the last until settlement is arrived, otherwise different modes of agitation and protest would be launched which could disturb the peace and tranquility of the neighbourhood.
Any untowards incident hence shall be the sole responsibility of the government.
Secretary, Tribal Market Vendor Association
