Manipur government is planning to start the sessions for six schools selected under Government’s ‘School Fagat-Hansi Mission’ from February 12.

This has been done with an ambitious objective to give renewed thrust towards the improvement of government schools both in terms of physical and manpower infrastructure.

Disclosing this Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh on Sunday informed the public that the sessions for the remaining schools would also begin by the first week of March.

Chief minister Biren was speaking about the ‘School Fagat-Hansi’ mission at the formal inauguration of a 33/11 KV Power Sub-Station at Mayang Langjing Tamang in Imphal West district.

‘School Fagat-Hansi’ mission is a State Government initiative launched in January 2019 and under the mission the state authority is planning to develop all the government schools in 60 Assembly constituencies of the State as model schools and these schools would be run and developed in a uniform pattern.

Mentioning about various development schemes in the State, N Biren said there would be no point of developing good infrastructures and nice buildings if there is no sincere people in the society.

As such, it is a must to groom children and the youth at the grassroots level to make them sincere and honest, he pointed out.

He added that hard working and talented people are being provided assistance through Manipur StartUp and other schemes.

In his speech, power minister Th Biswajit said the Manipur State Power Development Corporation Limited (MSPDCL) -state’s power agency, has set a target to install prepaid metres for all the power connections of the State to curb power loss.

The Government is planning to acquire around two lakh prepaid metres for this purpose, he added.

MSPDCL chairman L Susindro and MLA S Rajen also attended the function.

It may be mentioned that the sub-station, which was set up at an estimated cost of around Rs 2.9 crore, would provide power supply to around 700 households of different localities of Mayang Langjing Tamang and Mana Ingkhol in Imphal West district.
