Imphal: Manipur Governor La Ganesan has said any infiltration bid or illegal immigration attempt into the state should be checked and dealt with strictly.
The Governor was speaking at the second day of his two-day visit to Ukhrul and Kamjong districts while interacting with villagers at a programme held at Town Hall of Kamjong District Headquarters.
Addressing the gathering, Governor Ganesan said that infiltrators are deliberately trying to sneak into the state’s territory from Myanmar side, mostly in the border areas.
The Governor added, “As we are sharing a long border line with Myanmar, all should be vigilant enough to check such acts and should inform the authorities if such case arises.”
Being a border state, the government alone cannot stop such illegal activities without peoples’ co-operation, said the Governor, while appealing them to cooperate with the government in this regard.
Reiterating that the Centre and the state governments are fully committed to the all- round development and to give maximum benefits to the people, Governor Ganesan said most of the development works are in the planning stage.
In Kamjong district, the Governor said, roads are being built and basic infrastructure will also be developed.
Any issues pertaining to development will be taken care of by the state government and also will apprise the Centre if necessary, he added.
The Governor urged the people to implement ABCD – A for Aadhar enrolment, B for opening a bank account, C for COVID-19 Vaccination and D for taking part in developmental activities.
Phungyar MLA Leishiyo Keishing and deputy commissioner of Kamjong district R Rang Peter also attended the interaction programme.
