IMPHAL: Considering the grievances facing by the villagers of Purum Likli, the Protection and Preservation Committee Manipur (PPCM) has distributed edibles items on Sunday.
In a press release of PPCM it is said that Purum Likli village is at a distance of just 27 kilometres away from the heart of Imphal city and located under Saikul Assembly constituency.
The Convenor of PPCM Jitendra Ningombam in its release said that Purum Likli is one among the oldest tribe in Manipur with less population recognized by the state government. It is said that the village is divided into two parts namely Purum Khullen and Purum Khunou with around five hundred people in population.
In order to build and bring development in Manipur state, we need to preserve the Purum Likli community culture tradition and customs but unfortunately instead of protecting and safeguarding them, the larger community are trying to swallow the small community.
The state government should take up a measures with the aim of equal development, equal treatment and equal rights at the earliest because in this village there are lots of shortages in various sectors and infrastructures namely health, education, water, road and transportation etc. Still the villages are yet to get many proper facilities and infrastructure at this hour.
As a reason of Covid-19, India government has announced provision of the various needs of the people and the same must be translated into action at the earliest. He said that the government should not perform any work with a partial view while hoping that their visit will bring good relationship among the various communities in the state.
