Imphal: Some displaced persons, whose houses had not been burned or razed to ground in the Manipur violence, have started resettling in their original places of settlement.
Chief minister N.Biren Singh said this as he distributed one-time financial assistance to beneficiaries under Special Scheme for Education of Children of Labour Card Holders staying at relief camps, at his secretariat on Saturday.
“Construction of prefabricated houses at different places for relocation of displaced persons are in completion stage. For those people whose houses had been burned down, the government is planning to build new houses for them,” Biren said.
The government has been taking up all possible measures to resettle all the displaced people and to provide necessary assistance, he added.
Biren Singh reiterated that the current crisis in the state is instigated by a group of people who intentionally want to disintegrate the state. “Even though all are facing much hardship due to the crisis, we are still living together by God’s grace.”
He said under Special Scheme for Education of Children of Labour Card Holders staying at relief camps, the government is providing a sum of Rs 5000 each to those labour card holders staying in relief camps, to help a little in the education of their children.
The state government had already distributed financial assistance of Rs 1000 to each person staying in relief camps as first phase and informed that another Rs 1000 would be distributed as second phase soon, he added.
