`Site scouting for rehab centre to house SoO cadres`


IMPHAL, December 29: Reacting to the reported involvement of SoO signatory groups in anti-social activities, state Home minister Gaikhangam who is also the state dy CM said that the government is looking for a proper location to set up a rehab centre for the Suspension of Operation signatory cadres.

Speaking to a select group of media persons today at his MPCC office, the party president said that cadres have been found involved in several activities against the ground rules of the SoO.

This might be due to lack of control over them or because they are kept at the Assam Rifles or army camps, he continued.

Once the rehab centre is set up, the cadres will be monitored by the state own security forces and will be under strict vigilance and whenever they go out of the centre, security personnel will be along with them, he elaborated.

He said as of now, the Joint Monitoring Group will be directed to conduct frequent meetings about the SoO ground rules.

Meanwhile, the chief minister and other state high ranking officials have already discussed about the allotment of land for the construction of the said rehab and identification of the location, he said.

Though the place is yet to be identified, the rehab centre is essential to restrict the cadres from indulging in untoward incidents, he opined.
