‘Fake Muslim residents are being enlisted as beneficiaries ’

The Loktak Lift Irrigation Farmers’ Development Committee maintained that the scheme must be made available to the deserving people.

The Loktak Lift Irrigation Farmers’ Development Committee has alleged that Fake Muslim residents are being enlisted as beneficiaries for the Prime Minister Kishan Kalyan Yojna in parts of Oinam and Bishnupur, and expressed strong condemnation against the matter.

A release stated that the Muslim community resides only in Ward No II of Moirang and Kumbi in Bishnupur but they have been found enlisted as beneficiaries for other areas. The fake Muslim residents were made up at Khoijuman in Oinam, Kwashiphai, Nachom, Potshangbam and Upokpi in Bishnupur, it added.

The information about the areas where Muslim community resides is known both by Administrator of Agriculture Department of Bishnupur and other related department, it stated. Yet, fake names were made which has caused disturbance in the community, it added.

The organisation appealed the authority concerned to investigate and take up necessary action. The scheme must be made available to the deserving people, it added.
