Langei Scheme is like a savings scheme where the members contribute Rs 100 to Rs 200 weekly and the first four phases of the scheme had already been completed successfully. However the payment from fifth to seventh schemes has not been made and the eight phase has just begun, she added.
She said that the group, Langei Scheme Group, was formed to address and bring to the public domain the issue at hand as they have been pressured by their relatives who were made to join the scheme under their assurance. She appealed to the Government and all the CSOs to co-operate in bringing justice to the people who have invested in the scheme.
Responding to queries from the media, L Ibeyaima said the payment of Rs 10,500/- each for 15,000 members for fifth phase; Rs 10,500/- each for 13,000 members in sixth phase and Rs 7,500/- each for 10,000 members in the seventh phase are pending. This amount to about Rs 35 crore, which she alleged has been taken by Telem Arunkumar.
The group had also submitted a written request to the local clubs and Meira Paibi of Nongok Sanjenbam in Imphal East district where Telem Arunkumar had established a model village under the name of 'Langei Village', but the group was told that he is currently not in the village.
She also told the press that the website of Langei International is also not working.
