The N. Biren Singh 2.0 government in Manipur, in its first cabinet meeting, has adopted ‘’100 tasks in the first 100 days’’ which include measures to make the state free from drugs, corruption and try to establish peace by reaching out to various insurgent groups. The cabinet meeting, chaired by Chief Minister N. Biren Singh on Tuesday also decided to advance the timing of government offices to 9am instead of 10 am at present. It was also decided to adopt a five – day-a-week work schedule in state government offices. The cabinet decided to increase working hours while cutting working days. Office work will start at 9 am. To sync with school timing and enable proper home assignment as well as ease traffic congestion, school timing will also change with classes starting at 8 am. The new system will improve output and productivity of government servants by providing much needed rest and rejuvenation on weekends. It will also enable adequate time for school children to productively use afternoon hours.
In order to fulfill its pre-poll promise of making Manipur corruption free , the cabinet decided to revive the anti-corruption cell in Chief Minister’s office, to be headed by an officer of the rank of Additional SP. ‘’ CM da Haisi’’ initiative will be transformed as part of the Anti-Corruption Cell, with toll-free numbers made available for the public to send complaints. Vigilance and Anti-Corruption department will act on actionable complaints received in the Anti-Corruption Cell within a deadline. No person including any member of the public, will be spared if found to be giving or taking bribe. The cabinet also resolved to make Manipur drug free. An IGP rank police officer will lead the Anti-Narcotics Task Force. Anti-Narcotics Division will be strengthen by posting manpower of integrity. Poppy plantation areas will be identified through satellite mapping and drone surveys. The cabinet resolved to pursue lasting peace for the State by reaching out to various armed groups operating in the region. With a view to reducing the hardship faced by beneficiaries of housing schemes of PMAY in urban and rural areas on account of Central scheme guidelines, the cabinet also decided to set up a corpus fund for releasing advance money to beneficiaries to enable them to start housing construction without waiting for the release of the first installment from the center etc. are among hundred tasks for hundred days. The intention is excellent but how will it be implemented successfully is still in dilemma in chronic infested state like Manipur. Let’s wait and watch the good result to come out and hope it shouldn’t be what is called ‘HINGCHABI NA SARI SAKPA’ (Band Aid Solution).’
