Chief Minister stated that the new government is trying to reduce the hill-valley gap to bring emotional integration in the State.

It is easy to break the State or region into pieces with few words or agitation but it is difficult to integrate and unite the people, he added.

The Chief Minister appreciated the decision taken by the civil societies that they would work together with the government to solve any issues happen in the State.

Stating that the idea of disintegration is a past perspective, Chief Minister urged the people of the State to support the present government to bring integration in Manipur.

The government doesn't incline or belong to a particular section of society or community and doesn't discriminate any community living in the State, he added.

On the occasion, Chief Minister said that persons with disabilities encounter many disadvantages in society and they are often subjected to stigma and discrimination and they have limited access to proper healthcare services, quality education, face fewer economic opportunities and are generally excluded from social processes.

He stressed that "Chief Minister-gi Shotharabasingi Tengbang" is reflective of the firm commitment of this government to empower the Persons with disabilities and the marginalised.

Such scheme would facilitate their vital and meaningful participation in contributing towards the creation of socio-economic wealth and overall welfare of the State, he added.

Mentioning about those parents who are living in the Old-aged homes, Chief Minister said that a certain amount as maintenance fund would be deducted from the Government employee who discriminate, give ill treatment to their parents and doesn't allow their parents to live at their homes.

He assured that the government is planning to introduce new schemes/initiatives for the children living in orphan homes soon.

Chief Minister appealed the officials of the Social welfare Department to work towards rendering human service and give priority to the persons with disability and old aged persons.

During the function, Deputy Chief Minister said that today is indeed a historic day and it is a path breaking moment for all of us to launch such unique scheme for the welfare of the persons with disabilities in the State.

He said that the primary objective of the "CM gi Sotharabasingi Tengbang" is to provide quality of life to the persons with disabilities and to bring inclusive development in the State.

He mentioned that why should we deny the rights and opportunities of persons with disabilities living in the State.

He hoped that such scheme would be adopted and initiated in other States too.

Without the love and support of the people, the government alone won't be able to execute such huge task of providing better care to the persons with disabilities in the State, he added.

He further said that collective effort is needed for successful implementation of the scheme.

Stating that India has one of the more progressive disability policy frameworks in the entire developing world, Minister for Social Welfare and Co-operation Smt.

Nemcha Kipgen mentioned that there are certain challenges such as lack of awareness, challenges of inter-sectorial co-ordination etc.

in proper implementing various social welfare schemes in the State.

She assured that the present government under the leadership of Chief Minister Shri N.Biren Singh would overcome the challenges and hurdles in implementing policies for all the categories of differently-able and intellectually disable people so that they can become part and partial of the society.
