The N. Biren Singh 2.0 government has sent a strong message to wipe out all forms of corruption, not only once but at almost all occasions after the formation of the new government. Such an announcement gives hope to thousands and thousands of common people particularly the educated youths, who had once lost faith in the government. The notion of getting a government job without bribing or without requesting to the Ministers or Commissioners or Director finally has been eradicated from the minds of the educated youths.
Well, it will be next to impossible to clean the chronic corrupt practice overnight. But if the leader of the state is committed to making the state free from corruption, then today is the best time to begin. A single initiative will certainly make the people believe that Chief Minister N. Biren Singh is the true leader of the state who has always thought for the welfare of the downtrodden common people.
The perception about getting a government job is possible only by payment or under the blessing of those in the government will be wipe out by action of the government under the supervision of the Chief Minister. An announcement without action will not make the public believe to the Chief Minister; neither the government will be able to win the heart of the people nor the people will support him. However, everyone knows that ‘action speaks louder’, and the need of the hour is ‘action’ and not a simple announcement to win the sentiment of the people. This first month of the N. Biren Singh 2.0 government is an opportunity given to the Chief Minister N. Biren Singh to prove to the people of his state about his seriousness in tackling the chronic issue of corruption.
Just a couple of days back , the Social Welfare Department, Government of Manipur have conducted recruitment test for appointing Supervisors, Inspectors, Garde IV post. There are rumours spreading around about some rich family having close relationship with the Government authority bribing huge amount of money. There are also rumours that the Minister in charge as well as the Commissioner and the Director of the Social Welfare department had already prepared a list even before conducting the recruitment test. These are rumours, but there is a saying that – “the leaves of the tree don’t move without a breeze”. Let’s hope those are rumours and let us also pray that such thing don’t happen this time as IT IS A MATTER OF PRESTIGE for Chief Minister N. Biren Singh.
The recruitment of various posts at Social Welfare department is just an example. There are many recruitment exam conducted by the government for various departments and the result of the test still are not declared. And the same rumours about the list of selected candidates, already in the hand of the department authority. These kinds of rumours happen because the wind is blowing and the leaves cannot remain silent.
Let’s hope the Chief Minister tackle the issue of corruption with extreme seriousness and by doing justice to the appointment of vacant post on merit basis of the candidates. For that, the answer script should be made available to all the candidates and the marks obtain should also be made public.
