Minister for forest, environment and ecology, wildlife and excise M.C. Konyak on Tuesday said recent public resentment of the ENPO has reached the Prime Minister’s office as isolation has created misunderstanding and discontentment between the government and public.
He was addressing the Mon district planning and development board (DPDB) meeting cum annual picnic.
According to an official bulletin, the minister, who is also DPDB Mon chairman, stated that posting of government servants in the interior districts like Tuensang, Mon, Kiphire and Longleng should not be taken as “punishment” but rather an opportunity to educate the backward people and change the mindset of the people.
Maintaining that absence of close relationship led the public to build up a mindset that the government has neglected them and consequently raise public resentment in various platforms, M.C. Konyak appealed to all to cultivate the culture of mutual understanding with the masses.
He also asserted the government was doing its best to provide peace and security to the people so that government officers could discharge their duties “without fear or favor.”
On the concept of communitization, the minister stated it was a noble idea of empowering the community for effective implementation of government schemes successfully at the grass root level, and further urged upon the members to educate the people of the area.
Maintaining that politicians and bureaucrats were equally accountable for any achievement or failure in the districts, he requested officers to keep close contact with the elected representatives for joint venture.
He also called upon heads of departments to submit proposal for requirements to respective departments before the next budget session.
Meanwhile, minister for school education and SCERT Nyeiwang Konyak, in his short speech said enough fund was available under SSA, RMSA, NREGA and other projects of the agri and allied departments for self employment, and urged upon officers of the district to utilize them judiciously for visible development and boost the economy of the district.
Senior elected member of the district, Chingwang Konyak and deputy commissioner Mon Dinesh Kumar, IAS also spoke at the programme.
Marcofed chairman and MLA C.L. John, DAN chairman and MLA Aloh Wangham, and MLA Lanpha were also present at the meeting cum picnic.
