Director of Health Services, Manipur bans Food items imported from China , Myanmar ,South East Asian

Contries that donot comply with Food Safety Standarrds Regullations :

This gains importance in imphal , the capital of Manipur, North East India . The twin towns of Moreh (in Manipur ) and Tamu (in Myanmar ) has been the Umbilical cord of commerce for years from tthe British Era . in 1995 both Countries agreed for Cross border Trade .Ofcourse the agreement is for Legal , but it is inevitable that illegal Trade also practiced by the Greedy .

This order is for the packaged food items that are legally bought . The products from China are available in in abundance in Myanmar and South East Asian Countries . These products make their way into Tamu , the Trade Town in Myanmar Border , which is separated just by a border Check post only to collect the entry fee of Rs. 10 /. People from the Indian Border of Moreh to Tamu (Myanmar ) will get back with the Chinese Products Packaged food as well as other without import tax. That will be cheaper than the Indian Product .

Now ,In the light of the nCov (Carona Virus 2019) from China the DHS has also made a request to the people of Manipur to avoid consumption of food items made in China, Myanmar and other S.E.Asian countries.

I hope there will be an Advisory to Indian Tourists who visit Tamu (Myanmar ) also to avoid the weird non vegetarian foods that are available .

I came back from Imphal yesterday after a Sports competition. I saw Dog meat , and Buffallow skin sold in the meat Market besides the other. more
