Expressing disappointment to the state government for delaying the service regularisation process, the association warns of democratic forms of agitations if the state government fails to pay heed to the demands of the association.

A release issued by publicity secretary of the association Meeltan on Saturday stated that the state government should be held responsible for any consequences if the demand of the association is not fulfilled.

The association has been running from pillar to posts demanding regularisation of service wherein memorandum and representations had also been submitted to the authority, it stated. But there is no concrete solution till date. The grievances of the poor MGNREGS employees (contractual) in remote hill districts remain untold, the release stated.

The state government regularised the valley district MGNREGS employees in 2016 but the hill district employees are still left out, it added.

 It further stated that the scheme, MGNREGS was first launched during the UPA government in 2006 by incorporating 100 rural districts of India. In Manipur, the scheme was first launched in hill districts and Tamenglong district was the first district selected for implementation of MGNREGS in the year 2006.
