A farmer died to get fertiliser in Manipur

Huidrom Vivekanta started off for Manipur’s capital Imphal from his village, Huidrom Makha Leikai, in the Imphal East district, after midnight on August 11.

His was an unusual journey that night; it was to be able to join a winding queue before a government warehouse in the city to procure two bags of fertiliser.

The 20-year-old farmer started out from home around 1 am with his friend Rody on his scooter, worried that by the time he reached the warehouse, the queue would get longer.

Vivekanta, however, could never reach the warehouse. On the way, he and his friend met with an accident. While Vivekanta died on the spot, his 18-year-old friend, Rody, was severely injured and has since been in an Imphal hospital’s intensive care unit.
