Imphal: Manipur chief minister N. Biren Singh launched “CM Da Haisi”, a platform for the people of the state to directly share their problems and suggestions with the Chief Minister, at a programme held at his secretariat, on Tuesday.
Under the initiative, every Manipur people can directly connect with the chief minister through the helpline number 9534795347 and share their grievances for speedy redressal.
The platform is launched to make up for the difficulties faced, in door to door delivery of services under different welfare schemes, due to Covid-19 pandemic. As the Government’s initiatives like Meeyamgi Numit, Hill Leaders’ Day, Go to Hills and Go to Village mission couldn’t be held frequently during this pandemic hour, the new platform had been introduced with the motto to facilitate contact between government and its people at grassroots level, Biren said.
The initiative would also encourage people’s participation in the governance and development of the state, he added.
A dedicated team had been set up to work in mission-mode daily from 8 am to 8 pm and record the caller’s grievances. The team would initiate the work of redressing the grievances received, by contacting concerned departments for early resolution. The platform aims to reach out and engage with at least 50 percent households of Manipur in the next two to three months, he said.
Various initiatives taken up by the government had been helpful in ensuring the benefits of certain welfare schemes reach its targeted beneficiaries and facilitate in uplifting their living conditions, he added.
