Rural Development & Panchayati Raj Minister Thongam Biswajit Singh asserted that efforts are on to complete the under-construction Zilla Parishad offices at Porompat within 65 days from today.
Biswajit was at the National Panchayat Day observation at Panchayat Bhawan, Porompat this morning. He also expressed the need to upgrade the Rural Development & Panchayati Raj department to a major department.
He also said that the government is targeting construction of 10,000 houses under the Housing for All Scheme, which will be launched soon.
Issuance of birth certificates will soon be made possible through electronic modes, added the mionister.
Biswajit also delved on the need to remove poverty from the land. He said we can bring development only if we work together. If an elected representative acts against the public, it will only lead to the public losing trust on politicians, he continued.
Stressing that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has already launched more than 126 schemes for the welfare of the people, the Biswajit asked the steps undertaken by the pradhans and zila parishads to reach out these welfare schemes to the people.
Three Gram Panchayats of Keirao, Kyamgei and Kanglatombi were awarded under the Gram Uday Se Bharat Uday Abhiyan.
