Kangpokpi is not a dustbin to dump non-locals: KYU
KANGPOKPI | May 16 : Wingers playing along Dimapur to Imphal continued to leave its passengers at Kangpokpi in fear of JCILPS at Imphal.
Earlier, 14 non-locals were left in front of TL Plaza of Kangpokpi bazar.
Today, two non-local passengers boarding from Dimapur in a Winger van were left again at the same previous location where 14 passengers were left on Monday morning.
On learning the incident, the local youths under the aegis of Kangpokpi Youth Union (KYU) immediately intervened and inquired the driver of the vehicle about leaving out passengers in the district and asked him to find them.
However, the two passengers were out of sight. But the roadside sugarcane juice vendor reported to have seen the two passengers boarding in a Kangpokpi-Imphal passenger bus.
The driver of the passenger van who hesitated to disclose the destination of the two passengers said that the duo booked the ticket at Dimapur counter and boarded the vehicle. The driver failed to respond positively when the youth inquired as to why they have been left at Kangpokpi district.
A minute later, another Winger van was seen attempting to stop at the same location. Members of KYU immediately followed the vehicle while the driver was seen checking the Aadhaar card and documents of some passengers.
The driver was attempting to unload some of the passengers but one of the KYU members asked the driver not to do such act. He also asked the passengers not to comply in case the driver asked them to get down till they reach their destination.
Yet another passenger Winger van from Golden Express Winger Service stopped at the same location and an aged non-Manipuri man was seen stepping down from the vehicle. The elderly man said that he booked the ticket for Imphal at Dimapur counter but hesitated to disclose as to why the driver dropped down at Kangpokpi.
Enraged with the situation, KYU summoned the driver and on being asked the reason for leaving his passengers, the driver disclosed that their concerned counter asked him to unload the passengers despite of booking the ticket till Imphal. Later, the KYU member asked the driver to take the aged man till Imphal and sent them away.
Meanwhile, considering the alleged mischievous intention of the passenger van service providers, KYU asked the concerned counters and service providers not to repeat such act in future within Kangpokpi district and its surrounding areas.
“Kangpokpi is not a dustbin or a dumping centre of non-local people” said KYU while cautioning that KYU will not be responsible for any untoward incident in case the Winger drivers continue their mischievous act.
