Imphal, March 19: Chief Minister N. Biren Singh said that there is nothing impossible to achieve if one puts in effort with a firm determination.
He was speaking at the launch of a six-month free remedial coaching programme under Chief Minister’s Lairik Yengminnasi Programme 2017-18 at the Durbar Hall of Chief Minister’s Secretariat today.
The scheme is implemented by Manipur Minorities and OBC Economic Development Society (MOBEDS) under the Department for Welfare of Minorities, OBCs and Scheduled Castes (MOBC & SC).
The Chief Minister said that the remedial coaching was conducted with an objective to provide tuition facility to the students belonging to minority, OBC and SC communities.
Stating that the present Government had already taken up many social security schemes for the needy and poor people, N. Biren said that the coaching programme was also part of one such scheme which would benefit the students belonging to less privileged sections of the society.
