 Addressing the event, Biren Singh stated that all communities residing in the state are one irrespective of different cultures and traditions and added that there should not be any mistrust and enmity among different communities. As such, the government, since its formation, had initiated ‘Go to Hills’ and ‘Go to Village’ missions to connect with its people, redress their grievances and ensure equal development, he said.

Around 22,781 persons had been enrolled and provided CMHT, a health card and nearly 2,271 persons had availed the benefits of the card.

He expressed satisfaction that 32,327 toilets had been constructed under Swachh Bharat Mission so far. Assuring that the 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.

 Projects worth INR 1,593 crore including road constructions are ongoing in the district, he added.

The chief minister stated that benefits amounting to INR 46.34 crore would be distributed to certain beneficiaries under different schemes during the programme and various projects with an estimated cost of INR 30 crore.

Appreciating the civil society organisations of Kangpokpi district for their continuous support towards the government’s development initiatives, the chief minister sought cooperation of the people of Kangpokpi in the construction of Asian Highway so that the construction could be completed sooner in the larger interest of the state.
