Government would never encourage favouritism and nepotism, said Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh on Monday, addressing a function related with distribution of uniform items to Manipur Police personnel.
The chief minister was personally involved in the distribution of the items held at 1stBattalion Manipur Rifles Parade Ground.
Singh claimed that since its inception, his government was committed to deliver transparency and corruption free governance in the state and appealed to the people to support the government in curbing corruption.
The chief minister termed today’s programme as simple yet very meaningful, recalling the scam that exposed supply of sub-standard belts and boots in the state police department.
He observed that such programme has provided an opportunity to give due respect to the police personnel for their remarkable duties towards safeguarding the lives and property and maintaining peace in the region. 
It was due to the commitment and hard-work of the police department, the government has been able to combat drug menace in the state, he claimed.
Recalling the paper belt scam of police department, the chief minister said that earlier, the police personnel bought the uniforms by themselves as substandard uniforms were supplied to them in the past.
The incumbent government would never let such scandal happen again and the government would provide branded and standard uniforms to all the police personnel, he added.
During the occasion, the chief minister and his cabinet ministers distributed the uniform items to the respective SPs and COs of different districts and units.
Deputy chief minister Y Joykumar, works minister Th Biswajit, health and family welfare minister L Jayantakumar, CAF&PD Karam Shyam, PHED minister Losii Dikho, fisheries minister N Kayasii, MLAs of the ruling parties, DGP and top civil and police officials attended the function.
