Huge change in state police conduct: Biren
Pothashang News Service: Imphal, October 11, 2019: “There has been considerable change in the behaviour and conduct of police in the past few years, and people are no more feeling uncomfortable and scared in meeting them,” Manipur chief minister N. Biren Singh said as he inaugurated a police outpost at Sora Khunuda Ching in Kakching district and a twin type-II quarter at the complex of Thoubal Police station on Friday.
The state has witnessed constant rise in entrepreneurship movement and upsurge in economic activities because of significant improvement in the law and order situation, he said while adding all these were possible due to the joint dedicated efforts of the different security agencies including Manipur Police.
Stating that police have been carrying out the campaign of ‘War on Drugs’ successfully with the co-operation from public and different CSOs, Biren said drugs worth around Rs. 1000 crore had been seized so far ever since the campaign was launched. Observing that drug menace should be permanently uprooted from the state in order to save the future generation, Biren also expressed the need for providing alternative means of livelihood to drug peddlers after reforming them.
He urged the people to avail benefits under different Government schemes instead of embracing illegal means of livelihood.
Urging the public to actively participate in CM’s Green Manipur Mission, the Biren appealed to the people of Sora and adjoining areas to plant trees in the nearby hills in consultation with Zilla Parishad Member and police. Reminding that land of the whole state belongs to the government, he asked the people not to fight among them because of land.
