Indo-Naga peace talks will not affect territorial integrity of Manipur: Biren

Pothashang News Service: Imphal, October 19, 2019: Centre has assured the Manipur government that the territorial integrity of the state will not be affected in bringing solution of the ongoing Indo-Naga peace talks, chief minister N. Biren Singh said on Saturday.

“The state government believed that the Centre and its leaders would respect sentiment of the state government. The state is vigilant and monitoring every stage of the ongoing peace talks,” said the chief minister.

The state government is committed to uphold the territorial integrity of the state, he added.

He made the remarks at the 128th Manipur Police Raising Day celebration held at the 1st Manipur Rifles Battalion parade ground.

It is tragic that most of the communities of the state always think for themselves rather than cohesive thoughts. When we start thinking for common good leaving aside personal or community benefits then there will be peace in the state, Biren said.

He said the government is committed to deliver inclusive governance and development in the state, while saying that various welfare schemes have been introduced for the people. In the last two and half years, with the love and support of the people peace has prevailed in the state. The government opens its door for any dialogue for resolving any issue in the state, he added.

Appreciating the efforts of the Manipur Police in maintaining law and order Biren announced that the government would construct a new City Police station and also renovate the existing Imphal West commando barrack.

Acknowledging the contribution of the Women Police personnel, he said a special women commando unit will be established. Around 100 women police personnel will be given special training in this regard, he added.

He said under a scheme of Home ministry, a police memorial park and police museum would be constructed soon as a mark of respect and tribute to those police personnel who have rendered selfless sacrifice and service for the good of the state.

DGP L.M. Khaute said, “527 militants were arrested including 102 Arms with 8908 ammunitions in past one year. Around 925 cases were charge sheeted by the Manipur Police. In war against drugs, drugs worth Rs 1336 crores were seized and 226 cases were registered under which 413 persons were arrested.”

He said child friendly police stations have been inaugurated in various police stations.

The chief minister distributed commendation certificates with cash awards to various police officers for their outstanding contributions in different fields. The best Police Station 2019 was bagged by Moreh Police station, best Battalion 2019 was bagged by 5th Bn Manipur Rifles and best Police Officer 2019 was awarded to Md. Wakibuddin, sub-inspector of Lilong Police station. Bhumika Shamurailatpam, who topped the High School Leaving Certificate Examination 2019 was also awarded with a cash prize of Rs. 5000 by the chief minister.

Biren took salute from around 15 march-past contingents of civil police, police commandos, Manipur Rifles, India Reserve Battalion, Home Guards, VDF personnel and Manipur Police dog squad.

He also released a souvenir highlighting the various achievements of the Manipur Police department in the last one year. He inaugurated a blood donation camp at Banquet Hall of 1st Manipur Rifles battalion.

Ministers, MPs, MLAs, chief secretary and top civil and police officers also attended the function.
