IMPHAL, Feb 25: Citing limited resources of the state as the main factor for the failure of the state government to fulfill the demands of COTA and FECTAM, the Chief Minister Okram Ibobi has appealed to the agitating teachers to withdraw their demands for the implementation of 6th revised pay in the greater interest of the state.
The Chief Minister stated this today at the sideline of the inspection programme of Capitol Project and other development works being taken up in Imphal area.
Ibobi further said that the state cabinet has seriously deliberated on the demands of both COTA and FECTAM several times, but their demands could not be fulfilled as the implementation of 6th revised pay could have serious implications in the development aspects of the state.
Terming the recent issue of threatening some villagers of Senapati district as an unfortunate incident, the Chief Minister stated that the issue has been over following clarifications from the concerned organization.
The ministerial team led by Chief Minister today inspected the Capitol Project at Chingmeirong and other development works being implemented in Imphal area.
