Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh on Saturday said that his government will always take people’s wish into confidence while taking any decision concerning state issues.
Biren Singh said this on the sidelines of the joint Meeyamgi Numit and Hill Leaders’ Day held at the Chief Minister’s secretariat on Saturday.
Singh also said there was no hurry to summon a special session of the state assembly to discuss the Framework Agreement signed between Centre and the NSCN (I-M) since the Parliament had not tabled the matter during the last monsoon session
He urged the public not to get disappointed as the State Government is ever ready to convene the session anytime if the need arises.
Biren clarified that the special session was earlier summoned as there was an apprehension about the introduction of a Bill on the possible solution to the Naga issue during the recently concluded Monsoon Session of the Parliament.
However, it did not happen, as such, the special session of the state Assembly was also deferred, he added.
Biren also said that a team of the state unit of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had recently met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh regarding the possible impact on the state due to the Naga Framework Agreement.
He further said that the Central Government would consult the State Government if any final solution to the Naga issue affects the State’s interest.
During the Hill Leaders’ Day and Meeyamgi Numit on Saturday, the Chief Minister personally heard about 500 complaints and met around 1500 people from different parts of the State.
