Speaking at the interaction programme held at Sadbhavna Mandap at the sub-divisional headquarters, the governor said he had come to the sub-division to know the problems faced by the people and to explore ways and means to address the genuine problems. He said, issues related to education, healthcare, connectivity, power, etc., should be taken care of, and he will look into them. 

There should be proper facilities for treating patients, good infrastructure, an adequate number of teachers for teaching students, all weather roads, and also a clean power supply, as these are the basic needs of the people. He continued that he will ask the concerned departments to look into the matter and will also ask the Chief Minister to take necessary steps in the larger interest of the people. 

La. Ganesan further said that the issues of drug abuse, poppy cultivation, and drug trafficking have been major issues, and the state government has been trying to curtail them. He stated that the number of drug users, particularly among the youth, has increased manifold during the last few months. In any case, this must be avoided through collaborative efforts, including those of like-minded CSOs and members of the general public.

The Governor appealed to the government to cooperate in this regard, saying that the state government has already mooted taking action against the cultivation of poppy plants, particularly in the hill districts. Large areas of poppy cultivation were destroyed, and the movement is on.

Expressing concern over the issues of illegal migration, smuggling of drugs, weapons, sneaking insurgents, etc. from neighbouring countries into our territory, the governor said, these activities should be prevented at any cost. He said, that government alone cannot prevent it, and full cooperation from the general public is quite indispensable. While appealing to the people to extend full cooperation to the security forces and concerned authorities to get the crimes contained, the governor said, only then, the peace loving people of this beautiful state be able to live peacefully.

On COVID vaccination, the governor said vaccination is the first priority to prevent the pandemic. He urged the villagers to get vaccinated at least twice as soon as possible.On TB elimination, he said, the Government of India has already committed to eliminating TB from the soil of India by 2025, therefore, concerned district authorities should conduct a survey to find out the number of TB patients to carry out remedial measures. The governor also discussed the significance of the Swachh Bharat Mission in making India a clean India.

The Governor felicitated Solimla Jajo of Kasom Khullen, the silver medalist at the recently concluded 54th Asian Bodybuilding Sports Championship in the Maldives.

Leishiyo, MLA, Phungyar A/C, while attending the program, said, Kamjong district is trailing behind the other districts in many fronts of development. He said, although the district shares an international boundary with Myanmar, no business activities or transactions can be undertaken as there are no facilities in the district. He went on to say that steps should be taken to bring the district up to par with the rest of the state’s districts.

Earlier, Deputy Commissioner, Kamjong, R. Rang Peter made a power point presentation regarding various activities of administration and development in the district. He informed the Governor that there has been an acute shortage of manpower in many sectors including education and healthcare. CSO leaders raised many issues and drew the attention of the Governor.
