Continuing her tireless efforts to reach out to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), Manipur Minister Nemcha Kipgen on Sunday met thousands of Internally Displaced Persons in Kangpokpi District Headquarters.
Apart from thousands of DPs in relief camps set up in Kangpokpi town, there are also many staying in rented houses owing to various factors, mostly health issues.
The Kangpokpi Town Committee identified such IDPs staying in a rented house at Kangpokpi town, and the Minister reached out to them with relief materials on Sunday.
Minister Nemcha Kipgen, the local MLA of Kangpokpi AC, shared the suffering and pain of the people while meeting the IDPs.
She said that the suffering and pain the IDPs have been enduring for the past six months pains her deeply, making her restless.
However, I am so proud to figure out that you were strong enough to brave such sufferings and lead your life most optimistically with prayers, the minister added.
While exhorting them to motivate one another at these trying times, the minister said that they should put their burdens on God for He will give them rest.
“Stay hopeful, and be strong in prayers for God never fails His people”, added the Minister.
The minister also urged the people to pray for the central leaders for their wisdom and wellbeing.
“As we keep our faith and trust in God, always keep our central leaders in your prayers, for their health, wisdom, and wellbeing, so that they can come up with the best solution in solving our problems”, she appealed.
She also assured the people that as the representative of her people, she will always try not to fail them and implore them to always keep her in their prayers.
The minister distributed three blankets each to all the IDPs staying in privately rented houses during the meeting.
A prominent Evangelist, Rev Solal, also gave an exhorting speech through the Gospel and also prayed for the IDPs, the Minister, and the leaders of the Kuki-Zo community.
The Kangpokpi Town Committee, Kangpokpi Women Welfare Organization, and the Kangpokpi Youth Union, who have taken an active role in the welfare of Internally Displaced Persons since the initial stage, appreciated the minister for her concern and dedication toward the wellbeing of her people.
