Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh on Wednesday inaugurated new buildings of five government schools to mark the implementation of BJP-led coalition government’s “School Fagathansi Mission”.

The mission was launched on January 18 last year with an objective to give a facelift to government schools by developing modern infrastructure and deputing adequate manpower to enhance enrolment. 

In the first phase of the mission, one government school each in all the 60 Assembly constituencies of the state were selected for upgradation as model schools. All these schools would be run and developed in a uniform pattern.

The schools where the ambitious mission was inaugurated today were: Moirangpurel High School and Heingang High School in Imphal East district and Singjamei Chingamakha High School, Praja High School, Lamshang and SK Ideal High School, Ngairangbam in Imphal West district. The chief minister briefly visited all these schools one after another and inaugurated the mission in the presence of huge number of locals before the main inauguration function held at SK Ideal High School, Ngairangbam.

Addressing the occasion, Singh informed that adequate fund for the mission has been included in the state budget.  A sum of Rs 43 crores had been earmarked in the revised estimate (RE) 2019-20 and another Rs 25 crores in the budget estimate 2020-21, he said. The chief minister claimed that since the launching of the mission, there has been  a steep increase in the enrolment of students in government schools. 

He informed that under the mission, two schools located in Kasom in Kamjong district and Chandel in Chandel district would also be inaugurated soon.

The chief minister maintained that monthly review meeting would be held to track progress and identify needs of the schools run under the mission. 

After the inauguration of 60 schools in each constituency of the state in the first phase, another 60 schools would also be identified soon for the next phase. In his address, Singh also emphasised on the need to change the education pattern of the state so that children can be nurtured in a manner to make them responsible citizens and job creators rather than producing students who aspire to seek only  government jobs.
