The All Manipur Gorkha Students' Union (AMGSU) has urged the Gorkha community in the state to not use loudspeakers till the end of forthcoming Board of Secondary Education Manipur and Council of Higher Secondary Education Manipur examinations.
AMGSU publicity secretary Homnath Chapagain said that the student body has been receiving frequent complaints from the students and parents of different Gorkha inhabited villages about the use of loudspeakers in Puranas, birthday parties, marriage ceremonies, and other religious and non-religious occasions.
AMGSU is not against such religious programmes but using loudspeakers during examinations brings a negative impact on the society and community, especially among the student community, he said.
He also said that on many occasions, loudspeakers are used without obtaining permission from the authorities concerned.
AMGSU president L B Adhikari appealed to all AMGSU units and other local level clubs and women societies to monitor the use of unnecessary loudspeakers and informed the authorities concerned.
The student body also appealed to all the parents and guardians of the candidates who will be appearing in the forthcoming examinations to share such information about unwanted sounds to their respective AMGSU Units for an amicable solution.
Adhikari said that students are the pillar of the nation, and it is the primary responsibility of every individual and citizen to provide peaceful learning environment for the students by encouraging them to take bigger heights than their imagination
He also said that the upcoming exams will shape the future of the students, so one should not create any kind of environment by which they will be mentally distracted before or during the examinations. Hence, he appealed to all to create a peaceful and healthy atmosphere for the students during the examinations.
