Manipur CM reiterates need for safety clause in CAB

By CORRESPONDENT

IMPHAL, Feb 8 - Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh today said the State Government strongly opposes the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill till a clause is inserted in it that Manipur will not be affected by it, or the North East region will be exempted from it, or assent is given to the Manipur People�s Bill.

The Chief Minister was speaking at a loan distribution function organised by the Fisheries Department at the Chief Minister�s Secretariat here where he admitted that the public apprehension over the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill was genuine.

Stating that the Government is with the people and will fight for the people and the State, Biren Singh said the Government understands the sentiments of the people and civil society organisations over the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill. He appealed to the people to refrain from hurting the sentiments of other communities during agitations.

Meanwhile, informing that around 2,800 fish farmers have been identified for distribution of loans by different banks, the Chief Minister said altogether 247 beneficiaries have been given loans in the first phase through seven banks, including five nationalised banks today.

Urging the farmers and beneficiaries to repay the loan amounts in time so that they do not face any adverse consequences, the Chief Minister appealed to the bank officials to ensure that farmers get hassle-free loans.

Promising to construct a fish cold storage in the State, Biren Singh said the fish feed-making machine would arrive soon.

Mentioning that there would be self-sufficiency in fish production in the State by 2020, the Chief Minister said that the State has adequate water. But there is shortage of fish production in the State, he pointed out.

The Loktak Livelihood Mission was launched to provide employment opportunities to unemployed youths, increase fish production and improve the living standard of the people in the State, he added.
