IMPHAL, Sep 21: Patsoi Assembly Constituency MLA, Sapam Kunjakeswor (Keba) has called upon the public to help in the effective implementation of Governmental schemes and programmes by providing healthy feedbacks and suggestions at the appropriate time through any platform.
He made the above statement on the sidelines of a cleanliness drive conducted at Heinoubok community pond today as part of the 'Seva Pakhwada' campaign which has been launched in connection with the 72nd birthday of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Mission Amrit Sarovar.
Stating that not all the initiatives of the Government can be carried out perfectly, he appealed to the public to contact the relevant authorities and suggest improvement measures for smooth and effective implementation of such initiatives.
With regards to the construction of Langjing Water Supply Scheme which has been taken up under Jal Jeevan Mission, the MLA informed that Heinoubok community pond will be an important part of the scheme since it is located beside it.
The water bodies located near the pond will also be dugged up as a community pond within one year, he added.
In view of the water shortage issue in the paddy fields of Heinoubok, the MLA has informed that water will be pumped from these water bodies into these fields to ensure that harvesting of paddy is not affected.
While maintaining that he is working earnestly to ensure that Patsoi AC becomes a self-reliant constituency, he stated that fishes will be reared in the public ponds of Heinoubok so that locals do not have to rely on outsiders in terms of fish consumption.
He also commended the collective participation of the locals during such cleanliness drives.
The MLA continued that measures are underway to commission the Langjing Water Supply Scheme by December this year.
Lastly he informed that a proposal has been submitted to construct a stadium at the public ground located next to Heinoubok pond under 'Khelo India' programme and expressed belief that approval for the same will be granted soon.
