Illegal Panchayat Court Construction: Ringui VA seeks UADC’s stand

According to the village chief, the illegal construction was executed under certain fictitious expenditure head which the council administration identified as work done under the 14th Finance Commission of the UADC.

Raising strong objection to ‘illegal construction’ of a village court building for a non-existent Panchayat court at Ringui Ramhon locality, the Ringui Village Authority has sought clarification from the administration of Ukhrul Autonomous District Council (UADC).

In a representation made to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), UADC on 10 November, Ringui village Headman Atem A Shimray urged the former for initiating immediate rectification and necessary legal actions against the erring councillor or contractor responsible for the unauthorised construction.

He further sought clarification of the stand/position of the ADC Ukhrul regarding this illegal work, and apprised about the resolution adopted by the village authority on 26 October, 2020 which raised strong objection to the unauthorised construction works.

“Nowhere in the history of the village has there been two Panchayats or village chiefs,” he asserted, while adding that the mischievous manner in which the construction work was executed spoke volumes about the concerned ADC member.

While urging for a prompt response on the matter, he said that failure to do so on the part of the ADC administration would be taken as utter disrespect to the Ringui Panchayat and an attempt to cover up the gross misdeed of the perpetrator.

According to the village chief, the illegal construction was executed under certain fictitious expenditure head which the council administration identified as work done under the 14th Finance Commission of the UADC. “In your publication, it is mentioned that a certain Panchayat Court has been constructed at Ringui Ramhon at the cost at Rs. 10,00,000,” he pointed out.

He then contended that the act of constructing a Panchayat court building without any valid documents at a non-existent Panchayat amounts to illegal swindling of public money, while terming the same as an act of negating the very essence of administrative ordinances and rules of the state of Manipur, thereby cheating the public on the part of the ADC.

“The illegal construction of the fictitious Panchayat Court is not just an affront to the peaceful co-existence of the Ringui villagers but also a gross violation of the Tangkhul Naga cultural practices and ethos,” Shimray protested.
