He further highlighted the achievements of the district administration making many people get regular tap water, procuring dumping sites at Sehken with the aim of ‘for all free environment', selection of four schools as a model school and construction of five new barrack type quarters and others.
The national flag was unfurled at different places including ADCC complex where caretaker chairman, Khaipao Haokip hoisted the tri-colour flag while the police and Session Judge Complex also celebrated the 75th independent Day in the same manner.
At Pherzawl district, deputy commissioner Mannuamching hoisted the tri-colour in the presence of other officials and the public.
“Even though we all are hit hard by COVID-19, the government has not abandoned its people and is constantly looking for a way to help them,” said the DC during the programme.
