Manipur Chief Minister attended to as many as 780 complaints and personally met nearly 2,500 people from 8:00 am to 2:30 pm during ‘Meeyamgi Numit'(People’s Day) on Wednesday.

Scores of people turned up to air their grievances to Chief Minister Biren Singh personally at Chief Minister’s Secretariat. Meeyamgi Numit is organised on 15th of every month since May 2017 so that the public can personally appraise their grievances to their elected representatives including chief minister.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the day’s event, Chief Minister Biren Singh appreciated the tireless efforts of the government officials to make the new initiatives of the government successful. He said it is indeed glad to see that the employees of the government are working with sincerity and seriously for the welfare of the people.

The government officials are very supportive and eager to work at the grassroots to address the grievances of the people under the new initiatives of the government such as ‘Go to Village’ mission.

Responding to the rumour that the departments concerned are not taking necessary actions of the directions of the Chief Minister, he said that the government had introduced a monitoring system in the Chief Minister’s Office where the Grievance Cell keeps track of the follow up action taken up by the departments concerned.

The grievance cell of Chief Minister’s Office is informing the aggrieved person about the status of his/her complaint from time to time by sending SMS through their mobile numbers.

He appealed to the officials of the all departments to treat his directions to address the grievances met during Meeyamgi Numit as their official work. And those officials who fail to take up necessary action of the said directions would be punished.

Highlighting the issue of the illegal immigrants in the state, Chief Minister said, “If our own people are helping the illegal immigrants to get settled in the state then the future of the indigenous people and the state would be at stake.” The landlords need to identify those tenants before renting the room, he added.

He informed the media persons that he had instructed DGP to install special check post with gate at border gates such as Behiang, Moreh, Mao, Jiri to check and curb the influx of illegal immigrants in the state.

He cautioned that if an illegal immigrant gets caught at Pallel Police Station, then all the concerned Police Officers of Tengnoupal, Moreh Police Stations which granted the person to enter illegally in the state would face stringent action.
