The plantation drive was initiated as part of the arrangements for the 3rd death anniversary observance of Sapam Robindhood which falls on July 8.
JCILPS office secretary Jitendra Ningombam said that as per the written agreement on August 31, 2015, the State Government had assured to renovate the memorial site of Robinhood.
“The Government is yet to initiate any positive step regarding the assurance to renovate the memorial site. This shows that the State Government does not respect Sapam Robinhood who sacrificed his life during a movement to safeguard the indigenous people of Manipur,” he added.
