AMWJU withdraws RIMS boycott


IMPHAL, August 7: The All Manipur Working Journalist’ Union has lifted its boycott against the Regional Institute of Medical Sciences, Imphal, said a statement signed by the union’s secretary GA Naocha.

It said the boycott has been lifted following a formal information conveyed by RIMS authority regarding L Phillip Singh’s appointment as media adviser of the institute, replacing Laithangbam Iboyaima. 

It may be recalled that AMWJU decided to boycott RIMS, after a reporter of Manipuri daily Poknapham was insulted by Iboyaima using derogatory words when the former had gone to RIMS campus to get a report. 

AMWJU had demanded the removal of L Iboyaima as media adviser of RIMS. 

Further, the statement has also clarified that AMWJU has never demanded a table tennis board from the Parliamentary Secretary of Youth Affairs and Sports, Manipur, and has not received one either.
