Manipur: Villagers build over 80 huts for people returning to state

Manipur villagers build 80 quarantine huts to be utilized as quarantine centers for all the people returning to the state amid this corona crisis which is a fairly easy task when done by the government.

However, when it comes to villagers doing the same, it takes a lot of awareness, integrity, and whole-heartedness to build several residential huts with all possible facilities for all the returnees.

People from the Tungjoy village of Manipur’s Senapati district have built over 80 bamboo huts which can be used as quarantine centers for all people coming back to the state proving that all it takes is a little bit of humanity to serve you fellow being. In doing this, they haven’t taken financial aid from the government.

Each hut will accommodate one person and has been made well furnished with a bed, a toilet, mirror, gas station, electricity, and even with charging sockets! Water supply has also been arranged in several locations. More huts are being constructed.

This is an effort made by the locals to ensure that all those coming back do not have to face difficulties and a lack of facilities while being in isolation in quarantine centers.

Appreciating their efforts Chief Minister N. Biren Singh tweeted,  “My salute, Tungjoy Village Authority, has set up 80 huts for quarantine of their villagers who are going to come from outside the state. Each hut is fitted with a bed, separate toilet, gas table, electricity with a charging socket. Water supply is provided at various locations.”

Their service was also applauded by Union Development of North-Eastern Region Minister Jitendra Singh.
