Imphal, September 24 2011:
Blocking of NHs in pursuit of a particular demand by a section of a society is prevalent only in the state of Manipur and nowhere else in the world and this particular act is very unfortunate for all, said Gaikhangam, President, MPCC.
Speaking at the State convention held at GM Hall organised by the Kishan Khet Majdoor Congress, Gaikha-ngam said that in Manipur the people at large is bent on destruction rather than on constructive activity which will lead to development.
As such no development process can take place.
He further appealed to the general public to prevent all unwanted things from happening.
We should all abstain from doing whatever comes into our mind.
The current economic blockade and counter economic blockade should be lifted once and for all.
He further went on to say that a country can develop only after the farmers' community is developed.
As a result the Congress is doing its level best for the upliftment of the farming community and has set up a farmers' cell.
There are many farmers who are still ignorant about the various schemes taken up by the government exclusively for the farmers.
They need to be made aware of the different benefits given by the state as well as the centre.
The benefits should reach the farmers.
Or else there can be no development at all.
Speaking on the occasion, Abinash Katgali, Secretary Kishan Khet Majdoor Congress, AICC said that the central government has taken up many steps and has established the farmers' cell as a platform to give the farmers a helping hand.
The schemes taken up by the central government should reach the farmers of the state.
The function was attended by other state Majdoor officials, office bearers of MPCC and ADC members.
