Without naming anyone Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh has put the blame for the current crisis that it is instigated by a group of people who intentionally want to disintegrate the state.
Even though all are facing much hardship due to the crisis, we are still living together by God’s grace, CM Biren said while addressing the gathering of distribution programmes of one-time financial assistance to beneficiaries under Special Scheme for Education of Children of Labour Card Holders staying at relief camps.
The distribution programme was organised by Manipur Building and Other Construction Workers’ Welfare Board at the Chief Minister’s Secretariat on Saturday.
CM Biren informed that construction of prefabricated houses at different places for relocation of displaced persons is almost in completion.
Some displaced persons, whose houses had not been burned or razed to ground in the violence, have started resettling in their original places of settlement, he said and added that for those people whose houses had been burned down, the government is planning to build new houses for them.
He further informed that under Special Scheme for Education of Children of Labour Card Holders staying at Relief Camps, the government is providing a sum of Rs 5,000 each to those labour card holders staying in relief camps, to help a little in the education of their children.
Apart from this, he also stated that the state government had already distributed financial assistance of Rs 1,000 to each person staying in relief camps as first phase and informed that another Rs 1,000 would be distributed as second phase soon.
Expressing words of motivation to those staying at different relief camps, CM Biren stated that the government has been taking up all possible measures to resettle all the displaced people and to provide necessary assistance.
Under the special scheme, onetime financial assistance of a sum of Rs. 5000 shall be provided for education of children to every family having valid labour card and staying in the relief camps set up by the government.
