Imphal: Chief minister N. Biren Singh on Saturday inaugurated Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya Multi Utility Youth Centre at Haraorou, Imphal East.
The Multi Utility Youth Centre was constructed by Manipur Development Society.
The youth centre has facilities like gym, television connected to well informed news channels and other accessories which would be useful for youths in channelizing their energy in a positive direction, Biren said.
Informing that construction of nine other multi-utility centres is in progress at different places both in hill and valley regions, he added that the government was planning to construct 10 more such centres.
He appreciated leaders like Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya and Syama Prasad Mukherjee for their vision of eradicating poverty and advocating oneness of all communities. He maintained that India had attained substantial growth in many sectors under the supervision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and as such the state had also witnessed inclusive development in the last four and half years through various welfare schemes like Ujjwala, Ayushman Bharat and Jal Jeevan Mission among others.
Informing that the state government had always aimed to provide access to all services for its people affordably, he asked the public to apply for the Manipur StartUp scheme if the latter had any innovative ideas for starting a project.
He said one could avail loan for different kinds of farming-related activities from Manipur State Cooperative Bank Ltd. Prevalence of work culture and hard work amongst people would contribute much in making the state self-reliant, he added.
Regarding a proposal from the locals to construct a mini stadium at YMC Ground, Haraorou, Biren stated that he would surely look at what development could be done under the Khelo India programme.
Speaking on the forthcoming State Assembly Election, he appealed to the public to choose their leaders who would work with commitment for the welfare of the people.
