Imphal, June 20: MLA of Chandel Assembly constituency and minister of IFC department Letpao Haokip was accorded a warm welcome by people of the constituency at a reception held in his honour at Chandel town today.
The event was hosted by a special committee co-opted for the reception at Chandel Indoor Stadium and was attended by village chiefs, members of ADC Chandel, representatives of civil society organizations, district level officials and general public of the constituency.
Speaking at the occasion, Letpao said Chandel ranks among the least developed in the state but promised that the people can now look forward to a glorious future ahead as their own representative has been appointed as a minister.
He made a general appeal asking the people to extend their cooperation in the execution of developmental works in the district instead of propping hurdles. He said the pace of development will pick up gear only when people of the district develop a cordial relationship with deputy commissioner and district level officers.
He pledged that as a representative of Chandel AC he will be committed forever to the overall good of the constituency and will never work in the interest of a single community. If anybody breaches the rules than he will not escape unpunished, the minister told his home crowd.
He stated that the repair work at Chandel Water Supply office whose infrastructure were swept away by flood water recently will be completed possibly within a period of three months.
Before the reception, the minister took a site tour to inspect the ongoing work for construction of the 50-bedded District Hospital. Reports stated that the hospital building is nearing completion and the minister assured the people who accompanied him on the visit that the inauguration of the hospital will be carried out within 100 days from the date of swearing in of the BJP led government in the state.
