The almost perfect team but for the missing “Lok Ayukta”

The people of Manipur have one very good reason to believe that the state BJP’s Nongthombam Biren Singh led Manipur government will surely deliver justice to each and every citizen of the state. Before elaborating on why it is expected, one should laud the wisdom of the new chief minister over his understanding regarding the administration of a democratic form of government. His assurance in the house to complete the incomplete structures of various central sponsored schemes is worth praising and we the people of the state believed that the new Chief Minister who had converted into concrete action his party’s promise to solve the 139 days old economic blockade along the National Highway within a span of 24 hours after swearing in of the MLAs of 11th Manipur Legislative Assembly is a legit example to make the public repose it’s belief  that there is hope in the coming days.
The other thing that makes Imphal Times feel the new government will streamline governance is that, the team includes almost all professionals from every field. Chief Minister Nongthombam Biren was one of the most celebrated Editors of a newspaper published here in Imphal before he entered politics. Deputy Chief Minister Yumnam Joykumar is still known for his skill in bringing the state into a relative state of normalcy and calm when he was the DGP, even though the method he utilized was highly criticized from various sections. On the one hand L. Jayentakumar began his career as a lawyer and later became a 1st class Judge. On the other hand the young and energetic BJP MLA Th. Biswajit who is also the spokesperson of the newly formed BJP led government is known for his skills and finesse in interacting and communicating with the public. He already has good rapport on dealing with hostile agitators.
One fortunate thing for the BJP is that the party also has an MLA who was once a principal secretary to the government of Manipur. Yes, P Sharat who was elected from Moirang Assembly constituency knows everything that is to be known about the functioning of the executive. Precisely N. Biren led Manipur government is an almost perfect government and as such, it is only natural that the people expect many things from his government.
The only thing that Imphal Times would like to suggest is a transparent and efficient mechanism to prevent and/or weed out corrupt practices of the elected leaders as also the bureaucrats. For that the need of the hour is introduction of “Lok Ayukta” in the state. Many states have introduced it and there is no reason why such a powerful and relevant system should not be implemented in Manipur without further delay. After all, the vision document of the BJP had clearly mentioned of wiping out corruption from the state in line with the vision projected by the charismatic leader and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Mr. Chief Minister, there is not a shred of doubt that the people of the state will have more faith, goodwill and support in your government if corruption is checked properly by introducing and implementing “Lok Ayukta”.
