IMPHAL, October 27: Minority Sagei Apunba Lup Lilong has today come out strongly against the
local MLA Md Abdul Nasir, alleging negligence on the part of the MLA to develop his constituency.
A team of the organisation today accompanied by media persons inspected several Inter Village Roads of the constituency.
Speaking in the sidelines of the tour, general secretary of the organisation Md Nasir Ali said the IVRs in the entire Lilong Assembly Constituency could be compared to those in Afghanistan.
This is a symbol of massive negligence on the part of the local MLA, he lamented.
During the inspection, the roads were found to be covered in dust even as the locals continue to face the deplorable road conditions in silence.
The general secretary said the roads had not been repaired for the past four years since Abdul Nasir the present minister of Agriculture and Fishery in the State government was elected as the local representative.
The minister`™s arrogant nature, misuse of his Local Area Development Funds has been reflected by the lack of developmental work in Lilong during the past four years, he claimed.
He further alleged the local MLA of collecting huge sums from several families of the constituency with the promise of appointment in the recent recruitment of Manipur Police constables which has been halted now.
Now, MSAL has decided to raise voice against the local MLA in the near future, he told media persons.
MSAL will also launch various forms of agitations against the MLA if he fails to come clean on the use of MLA funds and others meant for the minority people, take up repairing of the roads and avail the MOBC benefits sponsored by both the State and Central governments at the earliest, he continued.
He further alleged the minister of siphoning the funds meant for the construction of the Industrial Training Institute in Lilong which was inaugurated recently by the Chief Minister.
The ITI was brought to Lilong by the Late minister Md Allaudin Khan for the uplift of minority Muslims of the State, he said.
It is also a platform for the people of Manipur and especially those of Lilong to gain job oriented trainings, he said.
Although PDS items for Lilong have not been distributed for more than four months now, the local MLA in trying to hoodwink the local populace once distributed a few quantities of PDS items to the people free of cost, he claimed.
Such exercises have led Lilong to become one of the most under-developed constituencies in the State today, he said.
Lilong Haorei College was a gift from former State Chief Minister Alimuddin to the people of the State, however, it has been reduced to a mere namesake of a college today, he rued.
Development of the college has been hampered after several supporters of the MLA interfered, he said.
He further claimed Nasir of using money and muscle power to buy the local voters.
