I have to endorse upon the view of the above commentator. It looks like its a way of pleasing a community named Tangkhul. Sometimes, listening more than enough, is also a sign of weakness of the policy makers of the Govt. I mean we should do the development activities concerning all the tribes and community of Manipur, in the way it has been doing earlier, not more to one comunity or not less to another. Tangkhul themselves understands that they are getting every kind of facilities and reservations in the past and present also. But it is not the responsiblity of the Govt. to go and build their houses or make them pass if they failed in the exams. They cant keep on blaming everything to the Govt. and Govt. cant keep on acting everything just to please them. Govt. should not waste extra money and time in unnecessary things. What is the specific requirement for the Tangkhul information centre, and how far it differs if it is Manipur Information centre and what kind of new information they can collect from Tangkhul so and so Centre. Are we going to make Kabui Information Centre, Kuki Information Centre, Maring Information Centre. Huinao macha challaga leiton lekkani kannadabada.
Why only tangkhul information centre??
I can’t understand this politics..
why not kom, paite, maring, anal, kuki…??
and even for meiteis residing in Kwakta ….
Again, opeining a centre in imphal won’t be the solution…. if possible, information centre should be opened in respective villages and assist local people sincerely.
A village boy who need assistance will find it difficult to visit the said centre located in imphal just for the sake of seeking information. SO, this plan is useless.
My suggestion would be, open “Information Centre” where employement news are updated in real time (not a big deal since internate is there but I am not aware of the situation in manipur) where villagers can seek information anytime without the need to spend time and money. Goverment can open a Student Guest house or Student lodging facility where user can stay during the time of exam or interview at nominal/free of cost.
STudent, by producing require documents such as amid card, ID, exam centre etc. call letter, etc can book a bed or room from his own village before coming to Imphal.
The cost of running such centres will not be that high.
