IMPHAL | Feb 16

The High Court of Manipur today directed the India Oil Corporation (IOC) through Advocate General Th Ibohal to submit a report on February 22 on whether all the petrol pump outlets in the state will able to make an open sale daily.

As directed on the last hearing by the full bench of the high court comprising Chief Justice Rakesh Ranjan Prasad, Justice N Kotiswar Singh and Jusitce Kh Nobin Singh, IOC, today submitted before the court a report on the inflow of petroleum products in the state before the court.

The report states that IOC was able to bring 114 trucks of petrol, 142 tankers of diesel and 103 trucks of LPG cylinder in a week.

The full bench was satisfied with the report submitted by IOC as they were able to bring in petroleum products in the state more than the quantity asked by the court.

Advocate A Romenkumar charged that the state government has not done anything to check price hike in the state due by the economic blockade.

The advocate general countered that government decides the prices of the commodities under Public Distribution System. He, however, said the government does not determine the market prices.

He claimed prices of essential commodities have come down and there is no scarcity of food items in the state.

After hearing from both sides the court directed the counsel to submit a report on February 22 on the changes in the price rates of essential commodities starting from September of last year till today to verify whether there is only a slight change in the market rate as stated by the advocate general.

In the last hearing the court summoned eight United Naga Council (UNC) office bearers through registered post and daily local English newspapers including UNC president Gaidon Kamei and information secretary Sangkhil Stephen who are currently in judicial custody to appear before the court on February 22.
