The chief minister further said that the process for National Register of Citizens (NRC) and to set up a population commission for the State is going on as the Centre had already given its consent.
Lauding media and social activists of the State for their contribution in bringing out different issues faced by the people from every nook and corner of the State, Biren also said that the government is able to help the poor and needy through the contribution of media and social activists. He further appealed the media and the social activists to continue their service for humanity and hunt for more news that focuses on the needy people, so that the government can extend any possible help.
While commenting on the border pillar issue, the chief minister informed that a joint survey along with representatives from Myanmar had conducted in the border and the matter was clarified. A joint survey will be conducted again to prevent any disputes in the future.
Answering a question raised by a reporter regarding the present crisis within the leaders of the state government, the chief minister also informed that talks are going on to sort the misunderstandings and reach a conclusion.
Though there might be misunderstandings, ministers are performing their duties as people’s representatives which show that their differences have not affected the governance. Any misunderstandings will be settled at the earliest with the consent of the Centre and financial situation of the government will also be made known to the people, he added.
Though there were signs of draught showing in the State which was worrying the state government as well as the people, it is a relief for the government as well as the people that the State has experienced rainfall though it is not sufficient yet. As such, the government is still purchasing extra pumps.
