Imphal,Oct. 3 (EMN): Manipur Chief Minister Nongthombam Biren Singh inaugurated the Senapati District Police Guest House constructed at an estimated cost of around INR 27 lakh at Mao via video conferencing on Saturday.

Public Health Engineering Minister Losii Dikho, DGP Manipur LM Khaute, Additional DGP (LO) AK Sinha, IGP (Administration) Immanuel K Muivah, IGP(AP/Operations/Provisioning) E Priyokumar and other high ranking police officers were also present at the occasion.

Speaking on the function, Singh said that it has been a sincere effort of the BJP-led government to ensure reaching of development and administration to the interior parts of the state.

Stating that Mao is one of the most important entry points to Manipur, Singh acknowledged the tremendous difficulties faced by police in checking uncontrolled entry of people during this time of Covid-19 pandemic. He also instructed the police to continue working with dedication and sincerity in this regard, stating that rewards for every hard work comes automatically. Mao is located about 110 km north of Imphal.

It was hard to maintain order in hill districts earlier, however the situation had improved considerably in the past 2-3 years, and it was due to the dedicated efforts of the Manipur Police department, he said and directed the police to maintain cordial relationships with the people and civil society organisations.

Stating that the police should always try to explore different ways to convince the public, he said that they should hold regular interactions with the people and the Civil Society Organisations so that unwanted agitations like bandhs and blockades can be averted in advance. He also directed the police not to confront with the public but make them feel that the government is their guardian and nobody is above the law.

He expressed hope that the newly inaugurated guest house would reduce the inconvenience earlier faced by police officers and personnel visiting the border town for their official duties.

In his speech, Minister Dikho who is the local MLA of Mao assembly constituency said that Mao police station is an old police station, so the buildings and infrastructure are quite old. As such, inauguration of a police guest house in the town is a very welcome development. He also appreciated Mao police’s works towards proper management of Covid-19 pandemic with their strict vigil on entry of people from there.
