He was speaking during a card distribution function of Manipur Old Age Pension Scheme and Chief Minister Widow Pension Scheme to 400 beneficiaries at the community hall of Chingmeirong Mamang leikai, Imphal East.

Arunkumar said he is not personally involved in the enrollment work for the cards but he is distributing them to the beneficiaries after all the works are completed by the Social Welfare department. Politics should not be played while delivering government schemes to the beneficiaries, he added.

He said people should not involve politics in order to get political mileage while delivering services to the people including the delivery of government schemes to the beneficiaries. Each individual should be given the opportunity of government benefits irrespective of political parties, said Arunkumar.
