Imphal, April 15,
Speaking during the Samajik Nyaya Diwas (Ambedkar Jayanti) at Sangai Hall, Hotel Imphal yesterday
Chief Minister N. Biren Singh had called on people for collective determination to bring about a change in the society.
The Chief Minister said that people need to cooperate to the Government’s effort towards bringing a change because legislators and executives alone can’t make it happen without mass support. He said that the State Government’s ‘Go to Village’ mission would promote social harmony, spread awareness about pro-poor initiatives of the Government and reach out to poor people.
N. Biren urged the Government officials to put in wholehearted effort to make Central Government’s ‘Gram Swaraj Abhiyan’ and State Government’s ‘Go to Village’ mission a success. The Chief Minister said that people had witnessed what the present Government could deliver in the past one year. As the Government had noted people’s wishes, it is the time to deliver service by the Government, he added.
In line with the interaction programme with those who are in the organised sectors held a few days back, the Chief Minister said that similar interaction with police officers who are from Sub-Inspector level would be conducted soon. Expressing concern over apparent rise of crime rates due to coming of new technologies and gadgets, the Chief Minister said that education and awareness are the key areas where one should focus to check it.
The State Government had begun dealing with evils like crime against women with an iron hand by setting up a Fast Track Court. However, it is seemingly not deterring the criminals much, he said. As such, there is need for imparting proper awareness and education to the people, the Chief Minister observed.
