Bishnupur: President of Bishnupur Block Congress Committee Ch. Ibotombi and Chairperson Ningthoukhong Municipal Council under the supervision of MLA Bishnupur A/C Govindas Konthoujam has flagged off vehicles to bring back those persons from Bishnupur A/C who are at present stranded in different neighbouring states due to Covid-19 lockdown. The flagging off was conducted at Ningthoukhong Bazar on Wednesday.
The vehicles included a bus which is bound to evacuate 31 persons stranded at Guwahati, one Tata Sumo to pick up 11 persons stranded at Silchar, and a Tata Winger van to rescue 9 persons stranded at Dimapur.
Ch. Ibotombi maintained that as the state government had failed to provide any assistance to bring back those stranded persons from Manipur in outside states who are currently facing a hard time due to Covid-19 lockdown, Ningthoukhong Municipal Council and Pradhans of 3 Gram Panchayat jointly discussed about the stranded persons from Bishnupur A/C and formed a committee that coordinated to make the arrangement to bring them back.
Ch. Ibotombi further maintained that further arrangement will be made to bring back those remaining persons stranded at different states.
