Shri Lunminthang Haokip, I.A.S.
Deputy Commissioner, Churachandpur District, Manipur
Subject: Request for Immediate Occupation of SDO/BDO Office at Singngat Village.
Most respectfully, we beg to state the following points for your kind consideration and necessary action on public interest. That, after more than a decade of abandoning SDO/BDO office and its related activities in Singngat Sub-Divisional Headquarter, we are finally blessed with the inauguration of the new office building on 4th July, 2015 by Shri Ginsuanhau, Hon’ble MLA, 60 Singngat AC. Elected MDCs of 60 Singngat AC, District Superintendent of Police, Officials and staffs from various government departments, Chiefs, Social Leaders and members of Philanthropic Organisations, Singngat Vision 2020 Implementing Committee members and the public in general who were present on the occasion applauded the expectation that the SDO/BDO office would be occupied and start serving the people regularly within few days. On the contrary, the office remained closed with no one working in the office till this date for reasons best known to the concerned officials and staffs and the District Administration in particular. On the other hand, office activities are taken up in Churachandpur which is only about 34 kilometres away from Singngat. People in the Sub-Division had to come down to Churachandpur for SDO/BDO office related activities. Much time, money and energy are wasted unnecessarily. The poor, the needy, the illiterates and the deprived in the society who constitute much larger sections of the society are most affected with the absence of SDO/BDO related activities in the Sub-Divisional Headquarter, Singngat. We have suffered too long already! If Bank, Medical, Police, Fire, Forest Departments, Govt. School, Para-Military Forces, Non-Governmental Organisations, Secular and Religious institutions manage to function and render their services for the people in spite of lack of basic facilities, how can the parental head of the Division- the Sub-Division Office and the Block Development Office remain closed and abandoned? In the past, appeals had been made to install regular office activities in Singngat but no concrete action was taken till date. We are now compelled to set a dateline which is the 15th of September, 2015 latest by which the office remain occupied by the concerned officials and staffs. Therefore, we earnestly request your good office to look into the matter and make necessary arrangement where SDO/BDO offices are occupied and its activities are resumed in the said building at Singngat proper immediately.
