IMPHAL, January 11, 2018: Meitei Pangals- Manipuri Muslims residing in the border areas of Moreh has hauled the attention of the government to look into the plight of the community.
Md. Husssain, president of MMCM- Manipuri Muslims Council Moreh has claimed that there are about 3000 Manipuri Muslims unfurling over four leikais (colonies) in Moreh ward No. 5. But the Muslims minority over the years who have been neglected and are deprived of basic amenities including better roads and safe drinking water etc.
Hussain said that during rainy season none of the roads that run through the four leikais has got black topping giving a hard time for the residents to commute.
He continued that with no safe drinking water the residents have been depending on Khujairok and Lairok rivers as their main water source.
However, with the increase in human activities, both the water sources (rivers) have been polluted and the residents are at a risk of contracting contagious or water diseases.
He appealed the state government to intervene into the matter taking in consideration the plight of the minority community.
