Manipur Governor La Ganesan has reiterated that governments at the Centre and the state are fully committed for all round development and welfare of the people. Addressing the people gathered at Sadbhavna Mandap in Chakpikarong Sub-divisional Headquarters in Chandel district on Wednesday, he said all governments are meant for the people and are also working for the people.

He said, a lot of progress has been seen in the last few years and many welfare schemes have also been introduced by the Centre. He said, benefits of such schemes have been directly reached to the people through Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT). Assuring the people a clean all weather road, he said almost all the roads in the state will be cleaned within a year. To give safe drinking water to every household, steps have been taken up under nationwide Jal Yojna, he added.

Stating that cleanliness would be the best way to fight against any form of diseases, he said, “We should always try to keep ourselves and our environment neat and clean. Next to cleanliness, vaccination should be our priority to fight the Covid-19 pandemic. All should get at least two doses of Covid vaccine so that we can fight it.”

Appealing to the people in the district, mainly those living in the border areas, to cooperate with the government, he said all citizens should enrol for Aadhaar for identification. “We should cooperate with the government to stop any intruders from coming into our state.” He also expressed confidence that proper fencing work would be started soon in the border line with Myanmar.

Earlier, Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and village chiefs submitted memoranda to the governor urging him to look into the grievances of the villagers. Governor assured that all possible help would be extended at the earliest. Governor also attended a tree plantation programme during his visit.
