The Kangpokpi chapter of Manipur chief minister’s ‘Go to Hills 2.0’ witnessed massive turnout of public on Monday.

Thousands of people attended the community outreach initiative held at Brigadier Thomas Ground at Kangpokpi district headquarters, amid the boycott call given by tribal based student bodies.

Tribal based student bodies across the state have been boycotting chief minister’s Go to Hill 2.0 mission showing strong resentment over the non-introduction of new Manipur (Hill Areas) Autonomous District Councils, Bill 2021 recommended by the Hill Areas Committee of the state Assembly.

On the occasion, chief minister N Biren Singh inaugurated various infrastructure projects taken up under different departments of the state government in the district. 

In his address on the occasion, the chief minister said that all communities residing in the state are one irrespective of different cultures and traditions being practiced.

“There shouldn’t be any mistrust and enmity among different communities,” he added. 

He said that the BJP-led government, since its inception, had taken up the initiative of ‘Go to Hills’ and ‘Go to Village’ missions to connect with its people, redress their grievances and ensure equal development. 

He added that such initiative would help in restoring the trust among different communities.

He claimed that his government had been able to provide supply of tap water to around 63 percent of the households of Kangpokpi district in the last four and half years. 

He added that various developmental projects had been taken up in the district even during the hard time of COVID-19 pandemic. 

Around 22,781 persons had been enrolled and provided Chief Ministergi Hakshelgi Tengbang (CMHT) card and nearly 2,271 persons had availed the benefits of the card, he informed.

Stating that his government would never go beyond the ambit of the Indian Constitution, he assured that there wouldn’t be any change in the provision of the Hill Area Committee which was already provided under the Constitution. 

He further announced that his government would consider construction of a Women’s Market (Ima Market) at Motbung soon. 

Assuring that the state government had always treated all sections of its people in the same way, he appealed to the public to cooperate in development works taken up by the former.

The chief minister also sought cooperation of the people of Kangpokpi in the construction of Asian Highway so that the construction could be completed soon in the larger interest of the state. State works minister Th Biswajit Singh maintained that peace had been restored in the state with the installation of the BJP-led government in 2017.

“Development followed only with the prevalence of peace,” he said. 

He stated that the government had been working with a commitment to bring inclusive development in the state following the footsteps of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
