CM Biren urges not to build religious structures at government quarters

When a government servant ends his or her tenure, they will be replaced by another person.  After the occupants leave their posts, the temple they had constructed and left behind may not be acceptable to new government servants who may follow a different religion, CM Biren said.

Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh on Wednesday urged not to build any form of religious structures, be it temples, churches etc. at government quarters by taking advantage of religion.

He was speaking in a press conference held at the Chief Minister’s Bungalow, Babupura, Imphal West.  

 “We have to live by following particular rules and laws, and need to move ahead under such laws together,” he said.

He stressed that these quarters belong only to the government. When a government servant ends his or her tenure, they will be replaced by another person, he said.  After the occupants leave their posts, the temple they had constructed and left behind may not be acceptable to new government servants who may follow a different religion, CM Biren said.  

He further questioned whether a new religious structure should be constructed every time a new occupant arrives at each quarter. “As human beings, we have to understand these things. Before pointing fingers and throwing blames on others, one must first consider his actions,” he added.
