Even though the tragic incident at Twilong (Barak) river in Manipur’s Tamenglong District on May 29, which claimed three lives and rendered six siblings orphaned, touched every hearts, yet it failed to touch the heart of the Government with reason best known to them paving way for the public voluntarily contribution which has already raised more than Rs. 4 lakhs thus far.

The people’s hope is that the poor six siblings in such pathetic condition are not avoided owing to the hearsay’s growing dissent in the BJP led coalition Government while the poor parentless children are already combating one of the worst situations in their life.
