Imphal, Mar 24:
The District Hill Leaders’ Day & Meeyam gi Numit for Kamjong district was observed today at Thawai (T) village of Phungyar sub-division. Organised by the District Administration, Kamjong, the program was held at the Community Hall of the village.
Deputy Commissioner Shri Rangnamei Rang Peter; Superintendent of Police P Manjit; ADM Ningreingam Leisan; CEO David Kashung Nao; and Secretary of Thawai village Shri Kharaomi attended the program as the important dignitaries in the dais. Top civil and police level officials of the district, and other district level officers of the various government departments attended the event.
In the event that witnessed hundreds of public in attendance, a total of 32 district level offices (DLOs) opened their mobile stalls to cater to the various demands and grievances of the public. Among the most active stalls were the CMO, ICDS, DSWO, District Horticulture & Soil Conservation, SDO office, DIO etc.
Giving his speech, DC Rangnamei said that the program has been intentionally planned to hold in various villages and sub-divisions of the district as Kamjong is a very vast district where every sub-division stays remote from one another. He appealed the people of Thawai and Phungyar block, in general, to extract maximum benefits of this program when it arrives ‘in your doorsteps’. He also appreciated the effort of the present government for initiating such a program where everyone can get avail of government services and welfare schemes very conveniently. To receive beneficiaries and services smoothly in a district like Kamjong where the district HQ is located very remotely is not an easy task, and that’s where an event like Meeyamgi Numit and Hill Leaders’ Day becomes a rescue to the public, he added.
Giving awareness to the public about the various Centre and State sponsored welfare programs and how those benefits can be received from such an event like Meeyamgi Numit, CMO Dr Lucy Duidang, ZEO L Nabakumar and District Horticulture Officer Kh Manorama gave speeches at the event.
The stall of District Horticulture & SC distributed a total of 11 water pump sets including 9 sprinkler pumps and 2 drip-irrigation pumps. The distributions were presented by the Deputy Commissioner Rangnamei to the beneficiaries.
