The District Hill Leaders’ Day and the Meeyamgi Numit (People’s Day) was organised across different districts of Manipur, including Churachandpur, Tamenglong and Chandel by the respective district administrations on Friday.
The Churachandpur district administration organised the District Hill Leaders’ Day and Meeyamgi Numit at the multipurpose hall of Mini-Secretariat Complex at Tuibong. During the event, the Churachandpur DC along with the district level officers interacted with the people and addressed their queries.
As part of the event, 41 different government departments set up stalls, including the health department’s vaccination programme and health check-up counters. The district authorities received a total of 150 written applications regarding various issues in the district, out of which 110 were resolved on the spot while 40 of them are still yet to be resolved.
It can be mentioned that, since Churachandpur district has a population of more than 2.7 lakh with a quarter of the population having Below Poverty Line (BPL) card Antyodaya Anna Yojana (AAY) card, the 110 cases resolved cannot be considered an impressive feat.
Our Tamenglong correspondent informed that the Tamenglong district administrations also organised the District Hill Leaders’ Day and Meeyamgi Numit at the multipurpose hall of Tamenglong district headquarter in the presence of the chairmen and secretaries of the various departments concerned.
During the programme, Old Age Pension and Widow Pension Scheme cards under Tamenglong district social welfare were distributed to about 20 beneficiaries. The pension cards were handed out by Tamenglong DC Pawan Yadav and ADM Tamenglong Thangboi in the presence of Tamenglong district social welfare officer Robinson.
Health cards under Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (PMJAY) Scheme were also distributed to about 22 beneficiaries by Tamenglong DC in the presence of Tamenglong chief medical officer (CMO) G Majachunglu, chief executive officer ADC Tamenglong Kachamthai Faiga Gangmei and SDO Thousem Paul Nangsha along with other district level officers.
As part of the event, the different departments set up banners listing their respective beneficial schemes, while the health department set up stalls and provided COVID vaccination and free screening of Hepatitis B.
Our Chandel correspondent added that the Chandel district also observed the District Hill Leaders’ Day and the Meeyamgi Numit at the multipurpose hall of Mini-Secretariat at DC Complex, Chandel. The event was attended by the SDOs, DLOs and other officials of the district.
Speaking on the occasion, Chandel DC Mayanglambam Rajkumar announced that the next District Hill Leaders’ Day and Meeyamgi Numit will be organised at different locations in the district so as to make the programme more accessible for the people living in different parts of the district.
As part of the programme, ADC Chandel Md Firoj Khan and the SDOs of all the three subdivisions interacted with the village leaders and discussed their queries and issues.
During the interaction, the district authorities received applications regarding various issues and feedback from the people. Different departments like Health, Social Welfare, Agriculture, ICDS, and other departments of the district opened stalls and rendered services to the people.
It can be mentioned that District Hill Leaders’ Day and the Meeyamgi Numit commenced under the leadership of Chief Minister N Biren Singh from 2017 onwards at the CM secretariat. The event was initiated with the objectives of bridging the hill-valley divide and to provide inclusive development.
