The holistic approaches to good governance and realistic priorities in Manipur

Dr Nunglekpam Premi Devi *



On the successful tenure of 8 years of Central Government (Bharatiya Janata Party, BJP), the Government of Manipur is on the verge to observing the "Seva, sushasan and Garib Kalyan" owing to "Service, Good Governance and Welfare for poor".

This very venture novel public program is marking the completion of the eight years of Shri Narendra Modi ji led Government and is being organized across the country, India at different State capitals, district headquarters, Morchas, Mandals, and as well as Krishi Vigyan Kendras. The underlying theme to Prime Minister's work vision "Seva, Sushasan and Garib Kalyan", over these last eight long years is definitely pledging to achieve hundred percent saturation of all the schemes provided to the public.

The project investment under Pradhan Mantri Matsya Sampada Yojana (PMMSY) is itself a flagship scheme launched for focused and sustainable development of the fisheries sector in the country. The program "Gujarat Gaurav Abhiyan" is a multiple development initiative including improving water supply in the region, along with boosting the connectivity and enhancing the mantra, the ease of living.

The Jal Jeevan and Swachh Bharat Mission, is the Government's mission top priority. The plastic waste management, biodegradable solid waste management, grey water management and faecal sludge management (The Indian Express June 10, 2022).

The "Model Village" scheme, the various schemes and initiatives for the welfare and empowerment of women "Nari Shakti", Government's efforts for youth development, enabling the youth to achieve their dreams and fulfill their potential in different sectors and contributing to National progress, public participation and interaction, sharing the details of reforms in the field of "Ease of Doing Business" which again is also for widespread prosperity and encouraging entrepreneurship guided by the principle of "Reform, Perform and Transform" in the pursuit of making India as the fastest growing major economy in the world and building a better country.

According to a brief study of Government's manifesto 2022, the BJP led Government is strongly committed to protecting the State's territorial integrity and pledge in preserving the rights of the indigenous people with their colorful rich cultural heritage. Other attractive source in the major eco-diversity tourism projects includes the development of the 'Follow Foothill train' (FO-FO train), Loktak Mega eco-tourism project.

The manifesto clearly mentioned the free distribution of Scooty to all the meritorious college going girls, providing incentive under 'Rani Gaidinliu Nupi Maheiroi Singi Scheme', establishment of Manipur Skill University and advanced standard of health care services center. Accidental insurance coverage to all fishermen, providing Chief Ministergi Hakchelgi Tengbang scheme and Ayushman Bharat, interest free loans for MSMEs, and the expansion of people centric scheme 'Go to Village', 'Go to Hills', 'Meeyamgi Numit', 'CMda Haisi', 'Lairik Taminasi', 'Hill Leaders' Day', 'School Fagathansi Mission' etc.

According to Government's, 'Rhythm of progress', there seems to be meaningful appreciation of 'Achievements' rolling out clearly. Considering the State's reports, the schemes taken up so far are ensuring development. Preserving and protecting the integrity of Manipur and promoting diverse cultural identity and the demand for Inner Line Permit System has been fulfilled. Naming of Mt. Harriet of Andaman and Nicobar to Mt. Manipur is also one good example.

Alerting the elderly people to the financial assistance schemes under the Manipur Old-Age Pension Scheme and CM-Gi Sotharabasingi Tengbang for the differently abled people, cultivating affordable health care for all enrolled beneficiaries under the Ayushman Bharat and CM-gi Hakshelgi Tengbang, providing monetary benefits under PM Matru Vandana Yojana (including pregnant and lactating women) and Pradhan Mantri Ujjawala Yojana (providing free LP gas connections), assisting one-stop centers for distress women, functioning of Manipur State Commission for Women, helping women's safety helpline under 'Nirbhaya Fund', financial assistance scheme 'Chief Ministergi Angangi Tengbang', steps taken to fight against Covid, setting up of isolation wards and quarantine centers and Covid Care Centers, launching of Manipur State Journalist Welfare Scheme etc are worth mentioning.

Around 12000 unemployed people are assisted with the Pradhan Mantri Mudra Scheme, a total of 5,477 start ups have benefitted under Start up India scheme, much employments are generated under Prime Minister Employment Generation Programme and found more than 20,000 youths are trained under Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana. It is also found out that 5.69 lakh families have been benefitted under MGNREGS projects too.

Sighting the far flung developing connectivity projects, the reconstruction of Barak Bridge and the Makru Bridge, the smooth upgrading of the Imphal-Moreh Trans-Asian 4-Lane Highway, the improving connectivity of the Tamenglong–Tamei- Kangpokpi road, the construction of Mizoram-Manipur–Nagaland Highway, the construction of the world's tallest bridge Jiribam-Tupul-Imphal Railway Line and widening of the Imphal-Jiribam Highway, urban transformation through "Smart City Mission", 'River Front Development", smart solid waste management, Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana for the poor people, Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, Housing for all urban, Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Gramin Scheme, National Rural Mission, installing pre-paid electric consumer meters, Solar street light installation etc. have been lined up.

Manipur was conferred "Krishi Karman Award" for the highest food grain production in 2017-18. In the "Transforming Manipur, 75 Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav" 5.82 lakh farmers are getting Rs 6000 per annum under Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana Scheme. "Farmer's First" is Government's top priority too. Supplementary micro irrigation is provided to farmers under Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana.

Manipur Organic cultivation under Mission Organic Value Chain (Manipur Organic Mission Agency) has been extended to European countries promoting organic products of the State. Indicating the sustainable development the launching of the "Chief Minister's Green Manipur Mission" National Bamboo Mission and conservation of the Nambul River Rejuvenation project, integrated Sericulture development projects, the initiation of Loktak Livelihood Mission, promising care on 'Food Security', farmer's profitable establishment of low input technology 'National Livestock Mission' and funds earmarking to the farmers for the development of paddy-cum-pissiculture 'Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana' etc are indeed the State's significant move.

The launching of 'DARPAN', the activation of the Manipur Lokyukta anti-corruption cell, the implementation of the e-kuber system, mpension Manipur app and introduction of e-GRAS system, the engagement of MYGOV Manipur platform and the successfully implementation of e-office, action programming on people-friendly police administration and most importantly the Government's declaration on "War on Drugs"policy etc. are worth noting. Well, indeed the Good Governance award was conferred in 2020 to Department of Administrative Reforms, under the Government of Manipur.
