Manipur CM calls on MoS DoNER Dr Jitendra Singh

Manipur CM calls on MoS DoNER Dr Jitendra Singh

New Delhi, May 19 (UNI) Union Minister of state (independent charge) for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER) and PMO Jitendra Singh today complimented Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh for having successfully managed to get nearly five-month old economic blockade lifted which had been imposed by United Naga Council (UNC) in the State. Dr Jitendra Singh made this observation when the CM, currently on a visit to New Delhi, called on him to discuss a wide range of State related issues. He said the Biren Singh Government was sworn in on March 15 and after just five days on March 21, the United Naga Council decided to lift the 139-day-old economic blockade following successful engagement in dialogue and deliberations with the new State Government. Dr Jitendra Singh also appreciated Manipur Government’s decision to abolish interview for selection to Grade 3 and 4 posts and hoped that the other States, which were lagging far behind in carrying out this path breaking reform of DoPT under the Narendra Modi Government, will take a cue from the State Government which had done so within two months of its formation. Such a step, he said, 'will send a great and encouraging message to the youth, particularly in a sensitive State like Manipur which has gone through unfortunate phases of strife and violence.' The new experiment of introducing air clinics in helicopters, Dr Jitendra Singh said, was also 'being worked out with the concerned Ministries of Aviation and Health'. 'But, we must acknowledge that this idea had first originated from Manipur itself,' he noted. Dr Jitendra Singh said the Centre was committed to bring the North-Eastern states on a par with the other states of the country and in this context, he referred to a number of recent initiatives by the Centre undertaken in Manipur which include the setting up of a latest state-of-the-art sports university in the state, an official release here said.
