CRF Peren demands action for Peren fiasco

DIMAPUR, JUL 9 (NPN) | Publish Date: 7/9/2020 12:56:00 PM IST

Contending that the entire Peren fiasco was a result of negligence and indifference of the minister in-charge and civil administration, Civil Rights Forum (CRF) Peren district has urged the state government to immediately look into the matter with seriousness and rectify the failings by taking punitive action against the minister and officials of the civil administration. 

The forum has also warned that failure to respond to the situation as expected could lead to mass non-cooperation movement against the government

Asking the government to take necessary action, CRF through its media cell alleged that mis-governance was manifesting itself, particularly in Peren district. It observed that people’s trust over the government was eroding quickly, evident in the recent public uprising. 

Pointing out how a responsible government would not disown responsibility but responsibly and honestly work out for justice in the fear of God and in the interest of people, the rights group reminded the government to have no party feeling or inclination and move ahead with a sense of justice as every citizen of the land was equal before the law.

CRF explained that it had been forced to raise the Peren fiasco issue and demand justice as there had been occasions when the government had failed to address the COVID-19 pandemic with honesty and sincerity. The forum alleged that negligence and indifferent attitude of the government towards Peren district was visible and the people had been raising voices against this in the form of representations, news briefing, protest rallies, press releases, agitations and ultimatum by civil society organisations. It regretted that despite all these, the government continued to remain deaf to the public grievances. 

Citing the instance of sending a COVID-19 positive patient along with 16 returnees to Peren and discharging 96 vulnerable returnees to respective home quarantine without proper retest, resulting in the spread of the virus in the community as some returnees later tested positive, CRF said the minister in-charge for the district and the civil administration had miserably failed to discharge their roles.
