Imphal, August 08: National Students� Union of India, Ukhrul district has appealed to Chief Minister O Ibobi Singh for taking up necessary action to redress the grievances of the people of Ukhrul district.

In a memorandum submitted to the Chief Minister, the students� body lamented that the repeated requests made to the Government to solve the problem of shortage of school/college teachers and doctors has fallen on deaf ears.

The deplorable condition of the road particularly at Ukhrul town is also well-known to the Government, but so far not a single improvement work has been so far.

With the shadow of drought looming large due to shortage of rainfall this year, there is no one to care and listen to the woes of the poor farmers of the district, the memorandum pointed out.

The memorandum further informed that the all the Government offices in Ukhrul district are remaining almost defunct after the unfortunate non-cooperation movement launched by ANSAM and the subsequent July 9 incident in which many of the offices are burnt down.

Complaining against the attitude of the Deputy Commissioner of the district, the memorandum said it is acting like rubbing salt into the wound of the people.

The July 9 incident could have also been prevented had he intervene in time tactfully, the memorandum said, while demanding transferring of the said officer from Ukhrul.

Reminiscing Mahatma Gandhi�s dream of India �to feed the million hungry mouths and to mould a society and national based on non-violence, truth and justice�, the students� body said �today we are ashamed to say that he was an Indian and a torch bearer of the Congress�.
