Imphal, April 21 2020: Social worker cum secretary of Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee, Pangeijam Saratchandra has kick-started distribution of edibles today to alleviate the shortage of edible items in Heingang Assembly Constituency amid the lockdown.

Saratchandra took off his noble campaign today at the office of Heingang Mayai Leikai Sports and Development Committee by visiting households in Heingang Mayai Leikai and distributing potatoes, edible oil, onions, salts and pepper.

The same work will be continued till the entire Constituency is covered, the social worker said while appealing all to follow guidelines issued by health authorities.

He also urged all to use face masks in case of venturing out and maintain a safe distance to avoid the transmission of the disease.

He also expressed relief on learning that there is no COVID-19 cases in the State with two individuals being completely cured from the disease.

He, however, expressed concern for those State natives stranded at various parts of India.

The social worker then went on to denounce the recent acts of discrimination meted out to the North East people at various places of mainland India and urged authorities concerned to take up necessary measures so that such discrimination does not happen in the future.

Distribution of edible items, water and other sanitary items were carried out in various places across the State today.

Thoubal
In a very gratifying gesture, 2010 batch students of Progressive English School has presented edibles including rice, potatoes, oil, pulses etc as a token of love to their teachers during such a hard time.

Bamon Leikai Youth Club, Yairipok has also paid tributes to the Police personnel, health workers, medical staff and chemist shop workers carrying out their duties in and around Yairipok Bazar, by presenting refreshments.

Former footballer Phanjoubam Ibomcha also came out to offer packaged drinking water and breakfast to Police personnel posted at Ushoipokpi, Thoubal Melaground, Wangjing and Khongjom.

Edibles and water were also distributed at Lamding Cherapur, Heirok Part II, Tekcham, Nepra, Thoubal Khunou, Lilong Atoukhong and various locations under Thoubal district by different individuals, social workers, clubs, organisations and political fronts.

Hand sanitizers prepared by Red Cross Society were also handed out to vegetable vendors and public at market places in Thoubal and Kakching districts by the volunteers of Red Cross Society Manipur Branch and Thoubal branch today.

Kakching
A team of Legal Aid Clinic opened up by Library and Information Centre Kakching has also handed out 30 hand sanitizers, and cotton clothes to prepare face masks for the Police personnel through Kakching's Superindentant of Police, Victoria Yengkhom.

One Elangbam Chinglenkhomba of Keirak Makha Leikai also came out to help differently abled persons living within Keirak Gram Panchayat with edibles, apart from handing out the same to the residents of the Mantak Village.

Meanwhile, on the eve of its 22nd foundation day and on account of the upcoming Khongjom Day, Thoubal District United Women's Development Organization (Thoubal Ima) helped lockdown affected inmates at Mission Blind School Heikakpokpi; IRDO Wangbal's Old Age Home Rural Voluntary Services, Iramdam Ningol Sanglen, Wangbal and Children Home at Charangpat Maning Leikai by distributing food items.

Chandel
D Ringo Lamkang, Chairman of Chandel Autonomous District Council continued to reach out to people under his Aihang District Council Constituency, with relief materials and financial aids.

As a part of his continuous effort, he handed out Rs 5,000 each to the village chiefs of Angkhel Chayang,Charangching Khullen, Charangching Khunou, Charangching Khunkha, P Ralringkhu, Betuk and M Seljong villages for procurement of essential commodities for the respective villagers, at the residence of Robert Leivongi at Charangching Khunkha in Chandel district.

D Ringo Lamkang, on the occasion also claimed his relief effort is purely made at his own expense and there is no separate fund from ADC Chandel.

Thus he could concentrate his relief work only in his constituency, he said while saying that other 24 members in the ADC are too working for the welfare of the people at their capacities.

He also highlighted that he had proposed other members of the ADC to join hand and work together.

Differently abled persons extends aid
With a view to reduce the hardships face by differently abled persons in the state during the lockdown, members of Disabled Development Association Manipur (DDAM) and The Wheelchair Basketball Association Manipur (WBAM) have come out to extend essential commodities to 50 selected differently abled persons, having done the same yesterday.

The two associations have no separate adequate funds but the help is being extended from the contributions of its members, said a press release issued by DDAM.

While stating that they could not cover all the differently abled persons in the State due to limited resources, the associations sought help from all concerned and philanthropists to support the differently abled persons who are daily wage earners.

UCM continues to extend support
United Committee Manipur (UCM) also continued their charitable work on account of the lockdown by distributing edibles to the stranded students, labourers and destitutes.

Rice, potatoes, onions, pulses, salt, edible oil and other items were handed out today to the students and non local labourers living on rented accommodations at Keishampat Leimajam Leikai UCM today apart from a Tripuri student residing at Wangkhei Thangjam Leikai, said a statement.

UCM in its statement also appealed all to follow the advisories issued by concerned authorities.

UCM also urged the State to make an special arrangement to extend relief materials to stranded non local students and labourers, who have been left out by concerned MLAs and DCs.
