The Centre for Women and Social Upliftment (CWSU) on Sunday alleged the chairperson of the Manipur State Commission for Women (MSCW) Binota Meinam of “violating” the commission’s power in more than two incidents and condemned her for allegedly exercising autocratic principals.

On November 26, 2019 Binota forced a woman to sign a ‘Deed of Divorce’ which was beyond the powers and function of the commission, and the recent case No 42 of 2021 of MSCW which was suspended by the High Court of Manipur, stated a release from CWSU.

The deliberate misuse of power will lead to further victimising the victims of various forms of violence against women in the state if Binota remains as the chairperson of the commission, CWSU stated.  

The commission was constituted on September 15, 2006 as a statutory body at the state level to safeguard the interests of women and its mandate is wide, covering almost all aspects of women’s development, it mentioned.

And if such a person who is in charge of the women commission continues to exercise her power beyond the commission’s Act then the question will arise on what will be the future of women rights in Manipur, it added.    

CWSU further stated that for the welfare of the women victims and for the future of women of Manipur, it demands the government of Manipur to terminate chairperson Binota Meinam from her post at the earliest.
