It is high time for all the communities to understand the initiatives of the government.
Today’s meeting takes the step taken up by the Kakching District Administration with regard to the district boundary as timely and reasonable, he said while urging the Authority to continue taking up necessary action in this regard.
People of the state are fully confident that the statement made by the Chief Minister would be translated into action. Government should demarcate the district boundary through Geo-tagging to ensure that boundary dispute does not arise in future.
