IMPHAL, July 31: Terming the imposition of a 10-day ban on all construction works of national projects in the State by some organisations as unfortunate, deputy Chief Minister Gaikhangam has stated that it will be better to cooperate and think about the welfare of the people and the development of the State instead.
The deputy Chief Minister was briefing the media at his office today where he also stated that such act will not bring any benefit to the State and instead only hinder the development process by delaying the State’s many ongoing developmental projects.
Stressing that development projects should be allowed to finish on time, he urged the people to stop creating hurdles for development projects.
Gaikhangam further said that everyone in the State must take responsibility for safeguarding the integrity of the State. He added that accusing the government of not doing anything to implement the ILP in the State or for the interests of the indigenous communities residing in the State would be a falsehood.
The government is still working towards implementing the ILP in the State and will urge the Centre to do the needful after the parliament session, he said.
Continuing that ciil organisations are invited to participate during the visit for raising the issue of ILP implementation in the State at the Centre, Gaikhangam said that the government has no objections to the implementation of ILP.
What the public desire is also the government’s desire, he added.
