Imphal: Government is trying best to end the crisis in Manipur and establish a peace and harmonious social order, governor Anusuiya Uikey has said on Saturday.
The governor was speaking at the launching function of Livelihoods Development Program for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) held at Hotel Imphal.
The programme was organised by MaolKeki Foundation – a philanthropic organization working towards bringing development in Manipur.
With the contribution and support of all stakeholders, the crisis can be solved amicably, Uikey said.
Government is trying to disburse compensation to the families who have lost their homes and belongings. Assessment will be conducted for damaged properties and compensation will be given. Now, the state has gone through difficult time due to the crisis. There is the need to reflect on how people from different communities came together to help each other in this time of crisis, she added.
Appreciating the efforts put forward by Maolkeki Foundation, the governor continued that the foundation is working to provide relief materials like educational materials, nutritional supplements, clothes to the children. The foundation’s efforts to make the displaced people economically self-reliant and help them stand on their feet are great.
Recalling her visits to relief camps, she said, IDPs in the camps requested to start training programmes and therefore instructions have been given to the authorities to start training in the camps. The authorities made efforts in this direction and now the training and material production has started in the camps which is very useful for the IDPs.
She said, livelihood development programmes are designed to improve the lives of the poor. The central and state governments jointly invest funds for the implementation of the scheme. The scheme provides suitable place, institutional credit to the rural poor to do their work and the scheme also provides social security to the poor.
The governor distributed materials and machinery to the IDPs in the programme. Seventy-five IDPs staying in relief camps in Imphal West, Bishnupur and Kakching will be given support through this programme by the foundation.
