Moreh By-Pass Eviction: ‘No relief for genuine households’

TMB Report

KANGPOKPI: A non SoO Kuki militant armed group, the Socialist Democratic Front of Kukiland (SDFK), has vehemently condemned the ‘forceful eviction works’ at Moreh International by-pass road claiming that it was much against the consent of the people who were not provided proper relief.

The outfit’s Information and Publicity Secretary, S. Kuki said that ICP Moreh By-pass road was jointly surveyed by Asian Development Bank (ADB) and Asian Highway and Development Corporation Limited to appropriately compensate affected victims in connection with the construction of the ICP Moreh by-pass road. 

However, Deputy Commissioner, Tengnoupal, Mayanglambam Rajkumar, and Benjamin Mate (BJP leader) in consultation with PS Haokip, President KNO, surreptitiously misappropriated the funds and allowed the start of the forced eviction works, he added.

He continued that despite the disbursement of compensation to the affected victims, Jangthang Mate, Chairman, Mate Tribe Union; Seijang Baite, Chairman Kuki Chief Association; Thangpao Touthang and Tongpao Haokip embezzled the funds, the resultant of which was the hue and cry of the helpless victims.

He further said that surprisingly few of the non-surveyed plots of 6 Lamkang households, 13 Tengnoupal village  households, 1 Chahmol village household, 5 Lokchao village households and few households around Moreh College which were never included in Moreh By-pass road construction were erroneously listed as affected victims and compensated ignoring the compensation of the genuine affected land victims, the statement claimed.

“It is therefore informed that the aforementioned names of person should duly clarified to the public the embezzlement of funds and cheating the public and ensured that those affected victims are appropriately compensated and rehabilitated at the earliest,” the outfit said and added that the repercussions for failing to heed the information would be the sole responsibility of the defaulters.
