Scheme for dropout reduction on Mar 15
IMPHAL | Mar 12 : Chief minister, Nongthombam Biren has announced to launch a special scheme on March 15 to reduce drop out students of class IX to XII and reaffirmed to bring quality live for all.
While inaugurating primary health sub-centre building, Laipham Khunou, Imphal East, today, he said people have suffered due to the past political scenario of the state.
Youth are the pillars of nation, but in the state hundreds of students become drop outs due to financial problem. A state or a country will not be able to participate in the global race without education. To remove the grievances for needy students an educational scheme will be launched on March 15 to reduce the number of drop outs from schools, he added.
He said under the new scheme, students belonging to families under below poverty line will enjoy free education, free admission where all the educational expenses will be carried out by the state.
As the present government is focusing to uplift the poor and needy people many schemes has launched in health sector, for disabled persons and most of the problems face by the needy have been solving since the ruling of this government.
To understand the grievances of the people Meeyamgi Numit and Hills leaders have been observing each month since the ruling of the new government in the state. The state is experiencing big change and has been able to solve most of the problem immediately, he added.
Biren appreciated the support of state health department in health care scheme for newly born child and Chief Minister-gi Hakshelgi Tengbang (CMHT) that has got the national award recently. A similar scheme, National Health Insurance Scheme under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi will be launched. He said the benefit of the national scheme is “insurance” but for the state it is “assurance”, as the state is giving assurance to the needy people in health sector, he asserted.
The state has been facing severe problems on drugs but no action had taken by the past government. To control the problem the present government has started mass destruction of illegal poppy plant cultivation in hill areas, he added.
To solve the grievances of flash flood mostly in city area measures has been taken by cleaning the main river beds of the state. He also appreciated the initiatives of public and voluntary participation of the people on the eviction process of all encroachment at river banks.
Biren said the state has already started celebration of first anniversary of BJP-led coalition government which would be continued for a month. The first 15 days will be celebrated as “Inaugural Fortnight” and on remaining 15 days state will lay foundation stones as new developmental projects.
State health minister, Langpoklakpam Jayentakumar as president of the function said the primary health centre has inaugurated and people of the area must think of it as their own property and to maintain properly.
He said according to government norms doctors are not supposed to be posted in the health centre but the state will discuss on the matter to be posted at a doctor on the centre.
He appealed the opposition party to stop being “childish”, instead the politician should share constructive ideas or suggestions to bring welfare for the state. People want “change” which the present government has been giving.
If the former government failed to complete the developmental government projects, they should not humiliate the success of the present government and it is not the time for word exchange between political parties. Instead political parties should support the developmental works by sharing suggestive ideas, Jayentakumar added.
With the developmental motto of the present government “go to hills” many hilly areas have been developing. Due to this development present government is welcome in the hilly areas unlike in the past. During the last fifteen years of former government people face bandh and blockade frequently which was due to miscommunication between government and the people of hills, he added.
