Biren emphasises public support to root out corruption

IMPHAL| Apr 19

Manipur has been no dearth of talents but the State is plagued with corruption. As such, people should take a proactive role in ending all forms of corruption, said Chief Minister, N Biren Singh.

He was speaking as the chief guest at the inaugural function of ‘Yenningthagee Eshei’ (Spring Music Concert), organised by All India Radio, Imphal at Maharaj Chandrakirti auditorium, Palace Compound, here today.

Stating that the present State government understands the mental stress endured by the parents and candidates who had appeared in the police recruitment conducted by the previous government, he said the present coalition government would declare the results of the said examination as soon as it completes the reviewing of recruitment process.

Observing that corruption starts from the people, the Biren made earnest appeal to the people of Manipur not to encourage any form of corrupt practices in the coming days. Announcing that his government’s plan to recruit State security personnel soon, he urged the public to stay away from corrupt practices in the said recruitment.

He also pointed out that no fund for any developmental project would be released if photos of work progress are not uploaded regularly on the government website, adding, change should always begin from self.

Further the Chief Minister assured that he would apprise the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi and Union Information and Broadcasting Minister, M Venkaiah Naidu about various inadequacies of All India Radio, Imphal and grievances faced by the staff at the earliest.

Biren also informed the gathering that the State government is planning to construct a guest house in Mumbai, stating that land had already been acquired by the previous government.

During his speech, the Chief Minister also accepted AIR Imphal’s offer of earmarking a 15-minute slot every month to broadcast his speech on the lines of Prime Minister’s ‘Mann Ki Baat’ programme.

Works, IPR, Power, RD & PR and Commerce and Industry Minister, Th Biswajit and National School of Drama, chairman, Ratan Thiyam also attended the function as guest of honour and president respectively.

Speaking at the occasion, Th Biswajit said that radio is the best medium where the government can promote its activities and welfare schemes.

He said majority of the people still listen to radio as their primary source of information even though IT and social media have made remarkable progress.

In his speech, Ratan Thiyam urged the new government to put in effort to popularise art and culture of the State by synergising it with tourism.

The acclaimed theatre personality expressed hope that a new vista of development can be opened for the State if tourism connects with art and culture.
