Due to influence of some vested individuals, the AWAS has become more of a profit earning company and failed to compel the guidelines of NHDC, alleged secretary of Dying and Weaving Cooperative Society Ngambam Nungshi while speaking to the media at Manipur Press Club in Imphal on behalf of all the societies.

She said as a result, various welfare schemes for handicrafts artisans have already been cut off from implementation. If the present trend continues, the schemes for the handloom weavers will also be cut off soon, she added.
