Imphal, March 13: In place of one L Iboyaima of Singjamei Waikhom Leikai recommended for the post of Procurement Officer in MACS by the DPC conducted in connection with it, another person was appointed to the post in secret flouting all established rules and norms.

This was disclosed by MLA I Hemochandra during zero hour of today's assembly session.

He added that Iboyaima is at present working in Manipur AIDS Control Society (MACS) as Administrative Assistant.

Hemochandra opined that such mockery of DPCs would not be in the interest of people and established rules.

Taking advantage of zero hour, MLA Ibomcha observed that the death toll on account of dog bites have been increasing at an alarming rate and drew the attention of Veterinary Minister to avail sufficient quantity of anti-rabies vaccines through the Veterinary Department.

MLA BD Behring presented a suo motto statement regarding the shoot out among his escort personnel belonging to 8 MR yesterday.

While sharing the grief and loss felt by the families of the deceased personnel, he noted that such indiscipline among security personnel poses a serious threat to the VIPs and VVIPs.

Behring's elder brother Thangsel injured in yesterday's incident was admitted to RIMS for medical treatment but he was later shifted to Shija hospital to remove one bullet now lodged in his leg.

However, the victim could not be operated upon yesterday because of his high blood pressure.

The operation might be conducted today, disclosed Behring.

Behring opined that if he were allotted a Government quarter, yesterday's incident might not have occurred but no Government quarter has been allotted to him even though he has been pursuing it for a long time.

Even as the Deputy Labour Commissioner has recently instructed under Shops and Business Establishment Act to close all business establishment on every Sunday, some businessmen are openly defying the instruction, observed MLA Th Tomba while appealing to the State Government to look into the matter.
