State’s financial status is improving after implementation of GST: CM
IMPHAL | May 26 : Chief minister, N. Biren Singh has urged people of the state saying that they should stay away from dirty politics played by some frustrated group of people who have the intention to bring down the present government.
The CM was speaking during the 24th State Level Khurpui-Lam Festival which was celebrated under the theme of ‘A movement for peace and harmony through cultural integration’ at Chandrakirti Auditorium, Hapta Kangjeibung, Imphal, today. The programme was organised by Khurpui-Lam organisation, Manipur.
Delivering his speech as chief guest of the function, Biren lauded the people of Kom tribe and stated that they are among the 33 recognised tribes of the state who are very much determined in protection and promotion of their own culture and tradition.
He said that after putting so much of effort, the present government has successfully bonded the broken relationship between the hill and valley people. So many ethnic groups which have their own distinct culture and tradition are settling in the state. It is quite essential to live in peace and harmony between these ethnic groups in order to bring development in the state, he added.
He also said that sometimes some strong community tries to dominate the weak community, however such mindset would give only negative impact in the society.
“People of the state must throw away that all kinds of negative mentality and build up the sense of oneness as there is a word ‘Unity we stand and divided we fall”, said Biren.
In connection with the memorandum submitted by organiser of the programme which demanded conversion of Khurpui-Lam festival as state festival and construction of Khurpui Lam cultural auditorium, the CM assured that discussion will be carried out regarding the demands and also stated that the demand for construction of auditorium is quite valid.
“The main objective of the present government is to bring happiness to people of the state, which is the reason why flagship programmes like Go to village, Meeyam gi Numit, Go to Hills and others are introduced,” said Biren.
He continued, “under recently launched Go to village programme, the government is delivering service at the doorstep of the public. Through this mission, the government has received around 3 lakhs complaints and grievances from public just in one month. And the government had addressed around 2 lakhs problems and remaining will be solved in three weeks.”
He also said that the financial status of the state is improved by around 200 crores after the implementation of GST, and the state government is putting their best level endeavour in order to achieve more than this.
The festival was divided into two sessions. The main events of the festivals were traditional rite, cultural dance, choreography and cultural fashion parade.
Other dignitaries attended in first session were minister of Social Welfare, Nemcha Kipgen and MLA of Moirang constituency, P. Saratchandra Singh as functional president and guest of honour respectively.
Many people from far flung areas also came to take part in the festival.
