In comparison with other states of India, Manipur is nothing and so the propose visit of Union Home Secretary G.K. Pillai triggers questions in the minds of the people. He visited Manipur several times as a Joint Secretary Home at different situations but had not taken up satisfactory development works. At the issue of brutal murder of Rabina and Sanjit, for instance, being in Home Department he took up no necessary steps to investigate the brutal killings, instead visited Moirang INA, and intervenes over the development programmed of Bishnupur and Senapati D.C. Office and other unrelated works with Home Department.
His four days proposed visit of Manipur raise questions in people’s heart whether he is coming with the genuine feelings of love for Manipur people. People would have welcomed him wholeheartedly if he visits Manipur with the plan of development of whole Manipur and not of only Imphal East and Ukhrul district.
G.K. Pillar is well known of the law and order situation in Manipur yet he seems to be apparently neglecting away from his responsibilities. For example DIG Range – I of Imphal West District and two each DIG Range II of Churchandpur and Bishnupur District are lying vacant for the last three years in Manipur Police Department. DIG armed police – I and DIG CID are also lying vacant for three years: 1G – I the protector of Law and order of Imphal East and Imphal West and IG – III the protector of Law and order of Thoubal District, Chandel District, Ukhrul District and Senapati District arc lying vacant for more than three years. Thus the law and order situation of the State is in chaos. The state is ruled by the commandos, SF’s & ASF’s. The clear visible example is the brutal murder of Rabina and Sanjit in broad daylight by some handful commandos.
Instead of taking up development works of some district people would appreciate it more if development work of Manipur as a whole is taken up. This is a humble suggestion from a humble citizen through the door of the Editors, I hope I will not be traced for my humble suggestion. We the citizens of Manipur, take our steps in the beats of the Home Department and so have written the letter with great fear in the heart.
