Manipur able to meet only 40% of potable water needs: Biren Singh
Manipur Chief Minister N. Biren Singh on Monday asked his Ministers to work for public welfare, pointing out that the state was able to meet less than 40 percent of the drinking water needs of the people.
He was speaking at the Bharatiya Janata Party office here to celebrate the birthday of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, which is celebrated as Good Governance Day throughout the country.
“We joined politics for public welfare and not personal gains. We must emulate Prime Minister Narendra Modi to work for the welfare of the people,” he said.
