Proscribed Kanglei Yawol Kunna Lup (KYKL) has imposed an even stricter ban on the functioning of Slope Land Public School, Khongjom, A press statement has been issued in this regard by the outfit’s Publicity and Research secretary A.Yaiphaba. The statement said the outfit declared a total ban on the school allegedly for holding anti-revolutionary views and going against the revolutionary principles of the outfit.
The outfit said it had sent a warning on September 30, 2022 against authorities of Slopeland Public School, Khongjom for neglecting to clear a fine and annual tax due to the party for years saying that the school would be forced to shut the following year if taxes were not paid on time.
“However, the school authorities remained adamant and ignored the warning. KYKL considers it a serious affront to the organisation,” it said.
Denying any understanding with school authorities, the outfit accused them of telling lies about the dispute to attract students to the school.
Maintaining that the dispute has not been resolved, the statement said there is no way KYKL can ignore this challenge. “The action of school authorities will be viewed as a serious threat to the national liberation movement currently underway in Kangleipak,” it warned.
Making its position clear on the issue, the outfit said it will take appropriate action against any Tom, Dick, or Harry connected to the issue. However, the ban will affect exams already underway since they are from previous years, it added.
The statement said no new students should be admitted for the next session, nor would classes be conducted. All school employees, including teachers and other staff, must stop working for the school, the statement added.
The statement further said, “There should be no unscrupulous actions taken in the interim, for example, mortgaging or selling the school. There will be equal punishment for both parties for such acts”. Students who wish to transfer to another school must receive a transfer certificate right away from the school administration, it said.
