Imphal (Manipur), Nov 20 : Agitated over low attendance of ministers at an official function here, CM N Biren Singh has sought resignation of the ministers and government officials who have no concerns for the public to either amend themselves or quit.
CM Biren Singh made the statement at the ‘Quami Ekta Week’ (National Integration week) function held at the premises of the Manipur Rifles on Monday, an official press release said.
The ministers and officials have no right to continue their office it they do not discharge their duties and should resign for the welfare of the people with sincerity and dedication, he said.
The function, organised by the state government, was attended by a handful of ministers, legislators and officials, the release said.
All elected representatives and senior officials need to be the role model for the public and do exemplary work during their service period, he said.
He cautioned the authority concerned to do the needful to avoid low attendance at any state level function in future and said nothing could be achieved without discipline.
Recalling former prime minister late Indira Gandhi for maintaining the unity and integrity of the country, he said the present NDA government under Prime Minister Narendra Modi had started giving recognition to unsung heroes of the battle for independence of the country.
