Pallel, April 07, 2022 (DIPR): CAF & PD, Revenue Minister Shri Karam Shyam expressed happiness over the  outstanding performances of the two female weightlifters Saikhom Mirabai Chanu and Khumukcham Sanjita Chanu who have brought laurels to the country by winning gold medals in weightlifting at the currently held 21st Commonwealth Games in Australia. He was speaking as Chief Guest at the inauguration ceremony of the public toilet at Laiching Meipou village, Pallel today.

An image of utmost sincerity can be seen from the villagers of Laiching Meipou village who have constructed a 3-room public toilet sanitation centre with proper facilities of ground levelling and water supply out of Rs.3 Lakhs they got at last year Christmas, he said.

The new BJP led Government has been trying its level best to maintain peace and solidarity amongst the different communities and ethnic groups of Manipur and minimise the hill-valley divide and communal conflicts, he said.

Manipur will never break if the people of the State has love, affection and concern for one another and share strong bonding under any circumstances, he assured.

He assured that as  Revenue Minister, he will talk with his Council of Ministers to look into the welfare activities of the village in connection with construction of playground and other amenities and take initiative in this regard even by discussing the matter with Sports Minister Letpao Haokip.

If I get  the chance to work with any other department in future that can give me the opportunity  for maximum contribution, I will extend help to my biggest  level not just for the betterment of Meipou village alone but also other parts of the State, he also convinced the gathering.

On a serious note, the Minister highlighted the importance of the enforcement of the Manipur Conservation of Paddyland and Wetland Act 2014 after witnessing various construction works and establishments in the field and paddy-land areas along the route to Lilong and Thoubal and beyond to Pallel today.

He appealed the public to respect and follow the laws by leaving behind personal gains for the food sustainability of the future generations. We also need land to grow crops to feed ourselves, he addressed. The public should understand the situation and support the Government to avoid conflicts and destruction of public property in future, he said.

In his welcome note, village secretary Kh Leirung thanked Minister Shyam for creating a sense of unity at their village saying that the Tengnoupal Constituency is just like a parentless village.

A memorandum was submitted to Minister Karam Shyam for construction of playground & gallery of Manipur Village Authority(MVA), waiting shed, community hall, road bridge of dam, drainage etc. in their village.

The Minister was presented a traditional Maring waistcoat and neck tie at the function.

Cultural Dance was performed by Napuiya Yinglam as part of the inaugural function. (DIPR)
