Thingpui villagers yet to receive promised rice
IMPHAL, 12th Apr: Villagers of Thingpui, also known as Laimanai, in Churachandpur district are yet to get a single grain of the rice allocated by the government to ease the suffering of the people due to the ongoing lockdown.
According to a statement issued by DESAM assistant general secretary Somorjit Luwang, villagers were deprived of their share of the allocated rice as they failed to submit some documents to the MLA.
Denouncing the failure of distributing the rice to the poor people on account of non-ability to comply official protocols, Somorjit made it clear that the allocated rice should be made available to the villagers in the next distribution along with the previous share.
He also informed that Grievance Cell COVID-19 of AIMS, DESAM and ANSAM distributed edible items to the people of Laimanai.
