IMPHAL: The Manipur government will begin relocation of violence-hit, displaced individuals from relief camps to prefabricated temporary homes from today.
Informing this during a recent event, Chief Minister N Biren Singh added that the transition to the prefabricated dwellings would kick off in select areas of the state from Tuesday onwards. The process is progressing vigorously, and the transfer of displaced individuals will unfold in a systematic manner, synchronised with the completion of construction endeavours, the Chief Minister informed.
Earlier on May 3, Chief Minister Singh had informed that plans to erect 4,000 prefabricated temporary homes across various districts, offering respite to those who were uprooted by the unfortunate eruption of Sectarian strife, are afoot.
Notably, the government’s vision extends beyond the immediate provision of temporary accommodations, with plans in motion to establish permanent residences for those who endured the loss of their homes during the tumultuous events.
Singh, while urging people not to spread distorted historical stories that could make it harder to build peace, stressed on the importance of responsible conversations at this critical time.
Because of the ongoing crisis in the state, about 50,650 people from different communities have had to find shelter in 350 camps. These camps are set up in schools, government buildings, and auditoriums.
As Manipur embarks on this pivotal journey of resettlement, the collective hopes of the state are pinned to the success of these rehabilitation initiatives.
