IMPHAL, Sep 21 (DIPR) Governor La Ganesan today virtually interacted with all the Deputy Commissioners (DCs) of Manipur. During the interaction, the Governor enquired about law & order situations and other major issues in all the districts.
Interacting with the DCs, the Governor said the main purpose of his visit to the districts is to know the issues and grievances faced by the people. He said, visiting all subdivisions is meant to cover all the Assembly Constituencies in the State and interact with people to know their issues pertaining to their welfare.
Representatives of local bodies, Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), and district level officers should be present during meetings so that grievances and appropriate steps to address the same can be taken up. MLAs should also be invited to attend meetings during his visits to their respective Constituencies, if possible, the Governor added.
Emphasizing the need to eradicate Tuberculosis (TB), the Governor asked the DCs to take appropriate steps in this regard. He further said that the Centre has set 2025 as the target of eradicating TB, some years ahead of the target set by the World Health Organisation (WHO). Therefore, all stakeholders should work to meet the target. “Although, COVID-19 pandemic is coming to an end, we should be very careful and appropriate behaviors should be followed,” he added.
