Imphal, Oct. 15: The Government alone cannot face the problems in health sector in the society. Facing such problems by the government alone is next to impossible. This was stated by the Chief Minister of Manipur O. Ibobi Singh while addressing the Financial Assistance Distribution Function sponsored by Manipur Heart Foundation in Collaboration with Sky Hospital at Classic Hotel, North AOC, Imphal.
The Chief Minister further said that the Government including those of private sectors together have to face the problems of Health and Education just like a war. We human beings faced enormous problems such as joy or sorrow which are inevitable part of our lives. By facing all these problems only then we can feel the real taste of life. Whether one lives in any secure place, definitely one day either he or she will die bidding adieu to his near and dear ones when his time comes. Even the cleverest of the clever could not be left out from death.
Appreciating the contribution of Dr. L. Shyamkishore who left London and started working here in Manipur for the noble cause of humanity, the Chief Minister said, one may adopt the profession of doctor, engineer or social worker but, at least what one can do by his profession be contributed in order to bring a good and an advanced society. We have to appreciate not only Dr. Shyamkishore’s contribution but those philanthropists who are also rendering their services by helping in the form of financially, physically or otherwise for the needy and BPL families who couldn’t afford to go for treatment outside Manipur, he added.

Hemochandra Singh as President and Guest of Honour respectively. The function was also attended by Parliamentary Secretary TA & Hills and IT Shri Victor Keishing, MLA’s Smt. O. Landhoni Devi and Shri St. Nunghlung Victor as Special Guests respectively.
