Expressing deep concern and dismay over the purported violence that occurred at the Ganesh Nagar quarantine centre, the Western Sumi Hoho (WSH) has demanded thorough investigation into the matter so such incidents did not occur again.

Lamenting the behaviour of “some unruly youths” in the quarantine centres, the hoho has, however, questioned the quality of food supplied in some of the government run quarantine centres. WSH stated that the incidents could have been avoided had quality food been supplied and delivered to the inmates on time. It stated that catering company supplying stale food should be responsible.

According to WSH, several incidents of serving half cooked and stale food to the inmates have been doing rounds on social media raising questions on the credibility of caterers as “this has been found to be the root cause for all the incidents.”

Since enough funds had been provided, the hoho stated that at least proper cooked and fresh food be provided to the inmates. 

“It is rather disappointing in coming to learn that some kith of high profile officials who are engaged of the catering are not delivering as expected of them,” WSH stated.

Further, WSH also questioned why police had to resort to such violent form of controlling the inmates when the matter could have resolved through a more mature and better approach. “These inmates are all our own children and proper guidance, counselling and care should be taken instead of treating them like some hardened criminals,” the hoho remarked.

Meanwhile, WSH has warned that if any Sumi youth was found indulging in unwanted and rowdy behaviour at quarantine centres, strict action against them would be taken. It has also asked the parents and guardians to advise their children and wards to behave properly.
