The tripartite talk between the UNC and government representatives had ended on the expected line. In fact there was nothing to talk if the UNC wanted to dictate the agreement without any discussion. It was an  exercise in futility. What however, most disturbing is the presence of three Cabinet Ministers of the Manipur government in a meeting chaired by an official of the rank of a Joint Secretary of the union government.

After a thorough and passionate discussion with many experienced and thoughtful doctors, we find that most of the complaints from the medical fraternity stem from the fact that they are not given sufficient resources:

Mr Heikrujam Naba-shyam has naively posited in his letter to the editor under the banner “Imprudence of ATSUM” that the stance taken by ATSUM on the controversial demand of inclusion by the Meitei community into the Schedule Tribe of the constitution as ‘STUPID’. The semantic use of the word stupid to a monumental organization like ATSUM which holds sway over the whole tribal community residing in Manipur is rather callous and insensitive on the part of the writer who should have been more prudent before writing articles based on fallacious polemics.

The press statement of the All Tribal Students Union of Manipur (ATSUM) that came out in the media on Oct 5, 2017 saying that “ it will fight to the end against the inclusion of the Meiteis in the ST list ” of the Indian Constitution, is stupid.

Sir,
Kangpokpi is a very small town bounded by high hills around, abundant of trees releasing fresh air, flowing a very fresh water river through it, infact, it’s a hot spot of biodiversities and a healthy gift of nature to live. Different types of communities like Nagas, Kukis, Meities and Nepalese living together will sense u a true taste of secularism in the society. Commercially, economically, geographically, politically they are in touch with one another since decades.

Sir,
Reference is invited to the Letter to the Editor titled “Back door entry at MPSC” published in your esteemed newspaper of 2nd September.

It appears that the writer either does not know what he is talking about or has purposely provided half truths to bolster his contention.
