Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh on Sunday expressed serious concern about illegal migration and drugs issues in the state.

He urged people of the state to first  identify who were the real enemies of the state in his address at the inaugural function of 2nd Dr L Bhagyachandra (Ihilel) Memorial Lecture on “Status of Indigenous Peoples: A Case Study of Meetei” held on Sunday at Kangla Hall in Imphal.

 “Who is the real enemy, lets identify,” he said and asked NGOs and CSOs working for the cause of the indigenous people whether they have studied in-depth to point out the enemies of the indigenous people of the state. 

Singh said that illegal migrants could be a serious threat to the peaceful existence of indigenous people of the state while seeking cooperation from public to come forward in finding out the motive of such illegal migrants.  He said his government took the matter seriously and in this regard and special units to be headed by an additional SsP or Deputy SsP will be set up to carry out routine checking at vulnerable locations of the state.

He also expressed strong concerned about youths getting addicted to drugs and deteriorating culture and traditions of the state,  while urging every community in the state to put collective efforts in wiping out the drug menace. 

“It is high time for every community to assimilate the rich culture and tradition to the youth, which is the backbone of existence of the state for thousands of years, ” he said.

While expressing the importance of the lecture programme with the present situation of the state Singh said that  the government, with the motive of providing education about culture and traditions from the grassroots level, has started the development of model schools. 

He was referring to the upgradation of 60 government schools; one from each 60 Assembly constituencies selected  to be model schools under his government’s new mission “School Faganhansi” launched on Saturday. 

Citing the reason for the present chaos in the state to the non-perseverance of own rich culture by the people, he stated that everyone should aspire toW contribute to the development of the society.

The chief minister praised late Dr L Bhagyachandra for his far vision and contribution in preserving and promoting the rich philosophy, culture and tradition of the state. 

Bhagyachandra was still remembered for his immense work in the field philosophy, politics, culture and tradition, he added.
