Imphal, April 24,
‘Go to Village’ slogan is not a new mission as the slogan was already started in 1988 by the then state government. Speaking to media persons at Congress Bhavan today , spokesperson of MPCC Hareshwar Goshwami said that instead of the starting the new mission why could not the present government empowered the Panchayat body by devolution of power to them.
Development of villages will only be possible if the local bodies like the Panchayat have been empowered. It is surprising to see the government starting another slogan for mere publicity instead of doing the real work under the already existed system, the congress spokesperson added.
