School amalgamation: Locals poise to impose bandh on NH

Our Correspondent
Thoubal, Feb 12: Denouncing a notice of the Government to merge the Khangabok Maisnam Leikai Upper Primary School with another school, the locals have taken several resolutions Monday and said they may resort to imposing bandh on Imphal-Moreh road if the decision/notice is not revoked at the earliest.
The locals, parents along with the school development committee members, Khangabok Part -II Gram Panchayat Up-Pradhan and Ward Members had held a meeting at the school Monday.
Warning of intense agitation to 'save' the school, the meeting strongly condemned the Government notice to amalgamate it with Khangabok Awang Leikai Upper Primary School.
The meeting also decided to approach the Thoubal Zone-III ZEO for appraisal to the Government and authority concerned to act on the memorandum submitted by the parents, guardians and the school development committee July last year.
