Imphal: Manipur chief minister N. Biren Singh cautioned the government employees not to involve in social issues, and instead, should resigned from being a government employee.
Biren was speaking during the Mass Sale and Distribution of National Flags to government employees as a part of ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign under ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ held at the 1st Battalion Manipur Rifles Parade Ground on Wednesday.
He said the government employees should discharge their duty for the welfare of the people. There will be no issues in the state if a government employee discharge their duty with dedication, honesty with sincerity. He said some of the government employees took benefits from the government and on the other side they insist some community against the government. Those employees should tender their resignation and choose either to join civil society organisations or as an intending candidate in election, he added.
There is no harm for students who are pursuing their studies at schools, colleges and universities to join students’ body. “The state home department is going to issue an order to restrict those who pretend to be student in order to take advantage under students’ umbrella,” Biren said.
He appealed the people to hoist the National Flag in every households in connection with the celebration of upcoming Independence Day celebration from August 13 to 15 and to hoist the National Flag at every government offices.
During the programme, Biren distributed the National Flags to representatives of all government departments for hoisting it at their respective office buildings.
The chief minister launched a T-shirt for the bike rally which will be held on August, 14.
He said every citizen of India should feel proud for being an Indian and should think for the overall development of the Nation in the first place.
The Har Ghar Tiranga Campaign is an initiative to encourage people to bring the Tiranga home and to hoist it for three days to mark the 75th year of India’s independence. The idea behind the initiative is to invoke the feeling of patriotism in the hearts of the people and to promote awareness about the Indian National Flag.
The chief minister appealed to the public to take utmost care and hoist the flag properly. He added that the flag should not be disposed of on the ground after being hoisted from 13th to 15th August. Rather, it should be kept at a proper place with honour as it is the symbol of national pride, he added.
