Manipur’s territorial integrity will be protected : CM

Manipur’s territorial integrity will be protected : CM

Imphal, Oct 19 (UNI) Chief Minister N Biren Singh said that the State government is committed to uphold the territorial integrity of the State.

This was stated by him at the 128th Manipur Police Raising Day held at the Parade Ground of 1st Manipur Rifles Battalion today.

The Chief Minister said that the Centre has assured the State government that the territorial integrity of the State will not be affected in bringing solution of the ongoing Indo-Naga peace talks. Chief Minister said that the State government believed that the Centre and its leaders would respect sentiment of the State government. The State is vigilant and monitoring every stage of the ongoing peace talks, he added.

Responding to the ethnic issues in the State, Chief Minister said it is tragic that most of the communities of the State always think for themselves rather than cohesive thoughts. When we start thinking for common good leaving aside personal/community benefits then there will be peace in the State, he asserted.

Stating that various welfare schemes have been introduced for the people, Chief Minister said the government is committed to deliver inclusive governance and development in the State. In the last two and half years, with the love and support of the people peace has prevailed in the State. The government opens its door for any dialogue for resolving any issue in the State.

Appreciating the efforts of the Manipur Police in maintaining law and order of the State, Chief Minister announced that the government would construct a new City Police Station and also renovate the existing Imphal West Commando Barrack.

Commenting on the contribution of the Women Police personnel, Chief Minister said that a special Women Commando Unit will be established. Around 100 women police personnel will be given special training in this regard, he added.

The Chief Minister maintained that under a scheme of Home Ministry, a Police Memorial Park and Police Museum would be constructed soon as a mark of respect and tribute to those police personnel who have rendered selfless sacrifice and service for the good of the State.

DGP L M Khaute elaborately spoke on various activities and initiatives of the Manipur Police in last one year. He maintained that 527 militants were arrested including 102 arms with 8,908 ammunitions in past one year. Around 925 cases were charge sheeted by the Manipur Police. In war against drugs, drugs worth Rs 1,336 crores were seized and 226 cases were registered under which 413 persons were arrested, he added.

He also stated that Child friendly Police Stations have been inaugurated in various Police Stations.

The Chief Minister distributed commendation certificates with cash to various police officers for their outstanding contributions in different fields. The best Police Station 2019 was bagged by Moreh Police Station, best Battalion 2019 was bagged by 5th Bn Manipur Rifles and best Police Officer 2019 was awarded to Md. Wakibuddin, Sub-Inspector of Lilong Police Station. Bhumika Shamurailatpam, who topped the High School Leaving Certificate Examination 2019 was also awarded a cash prize of Rs 5,000 by the Chief Minister.

The Chief Minister took salute from around 15 march-past contingents of civil police (male and female), police commandos, Manipur Rifles, India Reserve Battalion, Home Guards, VDF personnel and Manipur Police Dog Squad.

The Chief Minister released a souvenir highlighting the various achievements of the Manipur Police Department in the last one year. Chief Minister also inaugurated Blood Donation Camp at Banquet Hall of 1st Manipur Rifles Battalion.
