LIST OF GOVERNOR'S ADDRESS
by His Excellency, the Governor of Manipur, Shri Sayed Muzafffar
Husain Burney to the Manipur Legislative Assembly on 1.2.1982.
Mananiya Adhyaksha Amasung Ikai Khumnaraba Membershing,
I have great pleasure in welcoming you all to the first Session of
the Fourth Legislative
Assembly this year.
2. Shri Jangamlung has joined this Assembly having been elected in
the Bye-election from 53-Tamenglong Assembly Constituency. I extend
my hearty welcome to him to this august House.
3. The Government has accorded highest priority to the law and order
situation as it is an essential prerequisite for the development of
the State. It is a matter of satisfaction to all concerned that the
law and order situation has shown considerable improvement. As a
result, the development programmes have picked up speed. As you are
aware, some misguided youths continue to disturb the law and order
situation. The Army has been assisting the Civil Administration in
counter-insurgency operations. The combined efforts of the Police,
Army and Para-military forces have resulted in the capture of 920
extremists, including some top leaders of the outlawed extremists
organisations with sizable arms and ammunitions. Another 234 members
of the extremists organisations surrendered in response to the
appeal of the Government to come overground and to join the mainstream
of national life. They are being rehabilitated. The Naga underground
activities in the North and East Districts have largely been
contained and a few important Naga underground leaders have been
captured. The Government is prepared to extend necessary assistance
to the misguided youths to rehabilitate them. The Government is
determined to curb the extremists’ activities and if such
extremists receive sympathy and are harboured by citizens of the
State either on account of fear or as a favour, the Government would
have no option but to impose punitive fines.
4. In order to make police presence felt to a greater extent ten
Police Out-posts have been set up on the outskirts of Greater
Imphal, thus providing for enhanced security of public life and
property. The Police forces have been augmented considerably with
the recruitments of 60 Officers and 500 men in the Police
Department. Further, action is being taken to raise one more
Battalion of Manipur Rifles in addition to the existing four
Battalions. The Police force has been equipped with additional
transport and communications. Greater attention is being paid to the
training of the Police personnel with a view to improving their
working efficiency and discipline. Care has been taken to construct
living accommodation for the Police personnel; and so far, 19
barracks have already been constructed in Imphal and Pangei.
Provision of Rs. 5.06 crores has also been made for construction of
quarters for the Police during the 6th Plan period. In view of the
hazardous working conditions of the Police, the Group Insurance
Scheme applicable to the Police is being enlarged so as to provide
for increased Insurance cover not only in the event of death but
also of serious injury or disability. Employment is also provided
under the Die-in-harness Scheme to dependents of Police personnel
who die while in service.
5. In the wake of the number of Jailbreaks in the Central Jail,
constructed in the year 1903, considerable changes have been
effected both structurally and administratively. Further, measures
have been taken by the Government to improve the security measures
in the Jail. Following the recent Jailbreak, on 11th January when 22
extremists managed to escape, severe action is being contemplated by
the Government after due enquiry against the defaulting Officers.
The service conditions of the Jail staff have been considerably
improved by granting half-free ration, special casual leave, cycle
allowance and O.T.As. to the subordinate Jail staff. Steps have been
taken to construct a new Jail complex in the Central District at
Khabeisoi and two other District Jails at Churachandpur and Ukhrul
are already under construction.
6. The District administrations, particularly in the hill areas, are
to be provided with various functional and residential buildings
under the funds provided by the7th Finance Commission. Two more
Sub-treasuries are being opened in the Districts soon. The
Government has also been actively considering re-organise the
revenue districts in the hills and valley areas after taking all the
relevant facts into consideration. The Government will be in a
position to implement the decisions to carve out the new units at an
7. The allocation of Plan for the year, 1982-83 has been finalised
as Rs. 48 crores including Rs. 5 crores for Special Schemes Crash
Employment. The Government has impressed upon the Central Government
the urgency to speed up the pace of development and pleaded their
case for a higher allocation of Plan funds for the next financial
year, i.e., during the third year of the 6th Plan period. I have no
doubt in my mind that the Planning Commission will consider the
request sympathetically and increase the Annual Plan allocation.
8. The Government continues to pay special attention towards the
development of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes and Other
Backward Classes to bring about their socio-economic up-liftment.
Apart from the Central allocations, a Tribal Sub-plan and Special
Component Plan for Scheduled Castes are under operation. A special
programme for the development of the primitive tribes has been
implemented at Maram under a Centrally Sponsored Scheme. The weaker
sections of the society including the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled
Tribes could also take advantage of the new 20-Point Economic
9. To supplement the income in the Tribal areas, coffee plantation
has been introduced in Noneh and Nungba as an experimental measure by
the Manipur Tribal Development Corporation Ltd. in co-operation with
the Coffee Board. Seedling and technical know-how are being provided
by the Coffee Board.
Double cropping was taken up in the Khoupum valley by Manipur Tribal
Development Corporation. About 250 acres of land was covered
involving 250 families under double cropping programme. The total
financial investment for fieldwork was Rs. 1.45 lakhs. Every farmer
benefited by getting Rs. 3,200 in one season. The target for the
next crop is 500 acres.
Potato Seed Multiplication programme was taken up for the first time
by the Manipur Tribal Development Corporation as a pilot project.
About 93 families were selected in East and North Districts of
Manipur in about 11 villages.
Yongchak nursery was established. 15,000 yongchak saplings were
distributed free of cost to Nungba area of West District for
Yongchak Plantation to uplift the economy of the tribal farmers.
This is a new scheme, which will be extended this year to distribute
3 lakhs saplings.
The Tribal Development Department through the agency of
Manipur Tribal Development Corporation and with the help of the
District Councils undertook plantation of quick growing fuel wood
trees in about 100 villages. This was a pilot project under which
seeds of fast growing varieties were distributed to the villagers.
The plantation was carried out in record time. The plants are
reported to be doing well. It is proposed to extend this programme
during the ensuing planting season also. This year the area
specially selected for this work are the hills surrounding the
Imphal valley, which are at present barren. The area covered during
the last year was 500 acres. During the current year, it is proposed
to cover 1,000 acres.
10. The State Institute of Education has prepared and produced
textbooks for classes I, III and VI during the year. B.Ed.,
Summer-cum-correspondence course was run at Imphal as a Sub-centre
of the Regional College of Education , Bhubaneswar for imparting
training to Post-graduate and graduate teachers of Secondary
Schools. UNICEF Aid Projects were also implemented in the State to
gear up the programme for universalisaion of Elementary Education in
the State. For proper implementation of the Project, a survey was
conducted and a new curriculum and syllabus were framed on the basis
of the survey findings. It is unfortunate that some sections of the
teachers belonging to the All Manipur Secondary School Teachers’
have resorted to cease work strike with effect from 12th October
1981, demanding revision of pay scales with retrospective effect.
The relation between the teachers and the taught has been under
strain and the academic life of the institutions has been vitiated
by such uncalled for activities of the teachers. It is time that the
teachers too realise their responsibilities towards the students and
the society at large.
The long awaited Education Code of the Department has been approved
by the Government and it will go a long way to remove a standing
grievance of the teachers. The Manipur University, which has now
been established, has begun its academic session with the assistance
provided by the State Government.
MEDICAL AND FAMILY WELFARE
11. So far, the State Medical Service was being manned by officers
on deputation and others on ad-hoc scales of pay on the conditions
of the general services. I am happy to say that the Manipur Health
Service has now been constituted by the Government recently to
enable the Doctors to be permanent members of the service for which
they have patiently been waiting for.
Under the Health Sector programme, the State Government has steadily
improved the health coverage by adding two more Primary Health
Centres, 40 Primary Health Sub-centres, two rural hospitals and
upgraded one District Hospital at Churachandpur during the year.
Thus, the coverage of health by the PHSC has come down to 10,000 per
centre in the valley and 4,000 per centre in the hills against
23,000 in the valley and 5,000 in the hills in 1979-80.
12. Mass Education Programme for Family Welfare Service continues to
receive public co-operation through voluntary contributions during
the year, 1981-82 and 300 dais were trained during the year.
In respect of the Community Health volunteers, by the end of
1980-81, 1359 Community Health volunteers were in position. Another
390 will be added in 1981-82. The Government is planning to cover
all villages in the State in 1982-83 against the national target of
providing one CHV for every village or a population of 1,000 by
Mass education and motivation through wall paintings, posters,
hoardings, and audiovisual media were done in the Family Welfare
13. Coming to the performance of Agriculture and allied sectors, the
mainstay of our economy, we are striving to achieve self-sufficiency
in food production and employment generation simultaneously. In
spite of the vagaries of nature and water scarcity, about 61,000
hectares were brought under High yielding varieties of paddy. This
will be increased to 66,000 hectares by the end of this year. The
State, one of the few in the country, has adopted training and visit
system of Agriculture Extension Administration, which takes care of
all farmers and provides improved agricultural methods and
techniques of production by transferring knowledge from laboratory
to land. For the first time, protein rich local kind of pulse, broad
beans known as the “Hawai Amubi” have been included for
extensive cultivation in the field, apart from the high yielding
paddy varieties, namely, “Punshi” and “Phouoibi”. A large
area in the hills too has now been brought under economic
plantation. The Manipur Plantation Crops Corporation has started
plantation of tea in Jiribam and Coffee with the assistance of the
Indian Coffee Board and the North Eastern Council. As wet
cultivation is not possible in those areas and also to do away with
the Jhuming system as practised in the hill areas, the Government
has been currently considering implementation of 16 selected
horticultural schemes like rejuvenation of vegetable development,
expansion of fruit preservation, walnut cashew nut, mushroom,
spices, citrus development schemes and disposal of all the products
through the established channels.
14. The Forest Department is tackling the problem of deforestation,
soil and water conservation as well as providing industrial woods by
carrying on plantation of selected species of valuable timbers.
Under the scheme of economic plantation, an area of 1,320 hectares
was successfully planted with valuable timber species like teak and
pine. An area of 75 hectares had been planted with rubber and
40hectares with coffee. Under Social Forestry, an area of 295
hectares was planted with various fast growing fuel and fruit
bearing trees on wastelands.
LOCAL SELF GOVERNMENT
15. Under urban development, the Sixth Plan for Manipur provides for
construction of one thousand houses in Greater Imphal area and one
thousand in the hill areas at the rate of 200 houses in each
District Headquarter; these houses will be given to individuals
including Government employees, ex-servicemen and weaker sections of
the society on hire-purchase basis. Out of this, 89 houses and one
commercial complex are proposed to be constructed by the Planning
and Development Authority at Imphal during 1981-82. A provision of
Rs. 40 lakhs for utilisation by State Government during 1980-85 on
matching basis for Integrated Urban Development of small and medium
towns is already available. Chandel and Kakching towns have been
selected for improvement under this scheme for which Rs. 5 lakhs
have been provided for utilisation in 1981-82 and Rs. 6 lakhs in
For development of towns, the Moirang Small Town Committee has
already been upgraded to Municipal Board and Thoubal Small Town
Committee is also being upgraded. Action has also been taken to hold
elections to a number of Small Town Committees.
REVENUE & EXCISE
16. Thirteen additional Circle Offices will be opened during the
year, 1981-82. Under the Manipur Land Revenue and Land Reforms Act,
about 150 hectares of surplus land has been acquired and will be
settled with the landless agriculturists. As part of the reforms
measures, survey in the hill areas has been continuing.
Six additional Excise Outposts have been opened in the State and 3
more retail outlets along with one bonded ware house were given
licences. All these measures yielded additional revenue.
17. The need for ensuring supply of fish to the Manipuri society
need not be emphasised. With the increase in population, the need
for increased production of fish locally has been felt. Therefore,
the Fisheries Department has taken up 13 different schemes such as
production of improved varieties of seeds, conversion of derelict
water areas for piscicultural purposes, etc. The Department also
maintains one Fish Seed Farm in each District Headquarter and one
commercial Fish Farm each at Waithou and Takmu. In addition to
these, there is a reservoir at Khoupum producing appreciable quality
of table fish. Besides these, under A.R.D.C. and N.C.D.C. schemes
financial assistance continues to be extended to individuals and
SOCIAL WELFARE, ARTS AND CULTURE
18. The Social Welfare Department was expanded by adding the Arts
and Culture Unit from the Education Department since 1980-81. The
Department has been running 5 Family and Child Welfare Projects
besides extending grants-in-aid to Balwadies Health inputs and work.
In addition to the Functional Literacy Programmes for adult women
taken up in the Integrated Child Development Service Project areas,
Rural Functional Literacy Projects have also been implemented with
cent percent financial grant from the Central fund for eradication
of illiterate persons who were belonging to the deprived sections of
the community in the State.
One women’s hostel has been constructed at Imphal in order to
provide accommodation to different categories of women viz,
destitute, infirm, aged women who have been divorced and neglected
by their husbands; Production-cum-training centre will also be

Tharon resulted in discovery of Stone Age in Manipur. 102
antiquities were discovered.
Various Cultural troupes of Music, Dance and theatre were sent to
places like Bombay, Allahabad and Delhi to encourage our artists and
project Manipur’s rich cultural heritage. A few tribal cultural
and theatre groups were also encouraged to stage performance outside
19. The critical Power position in Manipur was partially improved
with our being able to draw power from Assam from July, 1981 –
with the commissioning of Loktak-Mao 132 KV transmission line, 132
KV Sub-station at Yurembam and 33 KV Sub-stations at Yurembam,
Iroisemba and Leimakhong. Upto the middle of January, 1992 around
8.3 lakhs Units of electrical energy with a maximum demand of 5.3 MW
of power were drawn from the Assam system via Dimapur 132 KV
Sub-station in Nagaland and the same has been distributed covering
most of Greater Imphal. Negotiations with the Assam State
Electricity Board are also on to enhance the quantum of power upto
10 MW and also decrease tariff rate until such time the Loktak Hydro
Electric Project is commissioned, as expected by December, 1982.
Meanwhile, the Department has commissioned 12.5 MVA at 123-KV
sub-station at Yurembam.
Out of the on-going 4 Micro Hydel Schemes, (1) Lokchao Micro Hydel
of 400 Kilowatt capacity at Tengnoupal district and (2)
Nungsangkhong Micro Hydel Scheme of 1,500 Kilowatt capacity at East
District are in advance stage of progress and they are expected to
be completed by the end of 1982-84. There are two other on-going
schemes and investigation for two other Hydel projects are going in
In regard to rural electrification, 19 villages have been
electrified upto December, 1980-81. Upto the end of December, 1981,
352 villages so far have been electrified. Works are in progress in
other 31 more villages to be electrified very soon.
A Master Plan for electrification of all the villages in rural areas
for a period of 6 years, or so, is being drawn up by the Department
with the assistance of the Rural Electrification Corporation. This
Corporation has also sanctioned two other schemes for establishment
of a linemen’s training centre and another for transformer repair
workshop for distributing transformers.
20. During 1980-81, the number of Small Scale Industries units
functioning in the State increased from 1,904 to 2,204 and is likely
to increase to 2,504 by the end of the current year. From handlooms
alone, 11 lakhs metres of cloth were produced during 1980-81 and it
is anticipated that 14.5 lakhs metres of cloth will be produced in
1981-82. Besides, during 1981-82 construction of three medium
industries, namely, (1) Starch and Glucose factory, (2) Cement
factory and (3) Sugar factory and Distillery plant has also been
For development of Sericulture Industry, a sum of Rs. 1 crore was
provided in the year, 1981-82. During the year 8 (Eight) Tasar Seed
Centres were set up and 8 (Eight) Extension Farms were established
mostly in the hill areas. For development of Scheduled Castes, one
Mulberry Farm was established. 25,000 Kgs. of silk yarn of different
varieties were produced during the year under report.
The Weights and Measures Law and Regulations under statutory
provisions of the Standard of Weights and Measures Act, 1975
(Central) were enforced. Regular and surprise visits to important
trading premises and marketing centres were carried out. As a
result, vendors have started using standard Weights and Measures.
ROADS AND BUILDINGS
21. During 1980-81, an additional road length of 169 Kms was
constructed and the total road length was increased to 3,302 kms,

out of which 6 are in the valley and the remaining 16 in the hills.
In order to associate the rural women with developmental activities
and to enable them to function as instruments of social change by
providing them with programme in which they will have a stake or
sustained interest, such as improving their productivity or income
and to reduce unemployment among rural youths, the Women and
Children’s programme have been taken up.
Associations of women workers, Gram Sevikas were given job course
training for 6 months at the Training Institute for women

The Manipur Whole Sale Co-operative Society, the State nominee for
lifting and distribution of imported edible oils has lifted 1,300
M.T. of imported Rapeseed oil and 700 M.T. of RBD Palm oil. As a result
of the same and the grant of subsidy on the transportation of edible
oils by the Central Government, the wholesale and retail prices of
edible oils in Manipur has been reduced considerably. The Society
has also procured wheat products from the Central pool
satisfactorily and there has been no shortage of wheat so far.
Salt and POL were made available to the public even in interior
areas by opening more sub-depots.
Adequate quantities of rice, sugar as well as GCI sheets have been
procured and there is no fear of any shortage during the year under
VETY. & A.H.
24. Fifteen new Veterinary Dispensaries were opened and six of the
existing dispensaries were upgraded to that of Veterinary hospitals
during the year. The expansion of medium sized Intensive Cattle

Manipur Whole Sale Co-operative Society to the general public. The
State Handloom Co-operative Society is also playing a vital role in
supplying yarn to the Primary Weavers’ Co-operative Societies and
marketing their finished products.
LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT
26. A special cell has been opened in the Employment Exchange at
Khuyathong for physically handicapped persons and two Employment
Exchanges at Kangpokpi and Thoubal were opened during the year,
1981-82. Another Employment Exchange is being opened at Jiribam
during this financial year.
PUBLIC HEALTH ENGINEERING
27. The past experiences of drought and subsequent failure of
monsoon have drawn the attention of the Government to the serious
shortage of water supply faced by the people. Till the Multipurpose
Projects as Singda and Thoubal are completed, the present scarcity
of water would continue.
The newly set up Public Health Engineering Department has been
pressed into service to quickly provide drinking water to the urban
as well as rural areas of the State during the International Decade
for Water Supply and Sanitation commencing from 1981.
The Government has been making strenuous efforts to provide adequate
drinking water to all segments of the population. In the urban
sector, the Plan is for augmentation of water supply in Greater
Imphal areas and also for water supply in the small towns. The water
supply capacity for Imphal city was 5.20 MGD as supplied by Kangchup
Water Supply and augmentation scheme of Chinga, Minuthong, Porompat,
Canchipur and Koirengei. On completion of augmentation scheme like
Singda and Ningthempukhri schemes by 1983 and Leimakhong Water
Supply by 1985, the capacity will be raised to 10.20 MGD. In respect
of the other towns, the schemes for Kakching, Nambol and Moirang
were completed and those of Thoubal, Bishenpur and Churachandpur are
being augmented. Other small towns are being covered under rural
water supply schemes.
In the rural areas, stress is being laid on supply of drinking water
to problem and difficult villages. The Government has been able to
identify 34 such “problem” villages in 1980-81. An additional
210 villages is expected to be covered in 1981-82.
Efforts have been made to investigate ground water survey in
feasible areas indicated by the Central Ground Water survey Team.
Efforts are being made to implement the schemes and projects as
early as possible to ease the problem gradually.
IRRIGATION AND FLOOD CONTROL
28. The Sekmai Barrage Project has been commissioned on 25 January
1982. It will provide irrigation facilities to about 1,000 hectares
of land with the potentialities of providing such facilities to
another 8,000 hectares when the project is completed.
Work in Thoubal Multipurpose Project, Khuga Multipurpose Project and
Singda Project is in progress. The Imphal Barrage is being
commissioned shortly. The Loktak Irrigation Project is now ready to
provide irrigation facilities to 10,000 hectares. A Master Plan for
flood control is under preparation after investigation.
PUBLICITY AND TOURISM
29. The Department of Information and Public Relations has been
functioning as a liaison between the Government and the people. As a
part of cultural exchange programme, the Department sponsored
cultural teams to participate in the ‘Rongali Bihu’ at Gauhati
and the Inter-State cultural Programme at Calcutta. Manipur
participated in the International Trade Fair held at Delhi from
November 14 to December 4. The Manipur pavilion was declared as the
best pavilion and was awarded a gold medal by the Indian
International Trade Fair authority.
In the second phase of construction, more beds are being added to
the present Tourist Lodge, Imphal. The ITDC and the State Tourism
Department have taken preliminary action to construct a Three-Star
Hotel and a Youth Hostel to meet the growing needs of tourists at
Imphal for which site has already been selected.
30. The Government has taken various steps for creation of a climate
to foster sports talents and providing necessary facilities.
Hon’ble Members will be glad to know that three of our girls
represented India in the 4th Asian Women’s Football Championship
held at Taiwan and another two girls in the World Cup Football
Championship held at Hong Kong. Two boys also participated in the
World Junior Hockey Tournament at Hong Kong. The contingent from the
State secured ten championships and six runners-up and bagged 13
Gold, 9 Silver and 19 Bronze medals in different disciplines in the
national events. The Government of Manipur hosted the North Eastern
Region Basket Ball Tournament and the 5th junior National Handball
Championship at Imphal.
31. Before I conclude my lengthy deliberations, I intend to add that
there is an urgent need to tackle the law and order problem with the
co-operation of all sections of the people. It has hindered the
efforts of the Government to mobilize resources, particularly land
revenue which will, in turn affect the progress of implementation
and expenditure on account of Plan.
32. Hon’ble Members, I place before you the achievement of the
Government and the broad lines adopted by the Government. Based on the
past experience, we would look forward to speedy implementation of the
development Plans. I hope the co-operation of all the Hon’ble
Members and the public will be forthcoming in full measures.
33. I wish you all success in your deliberations and in the
discharge of the onerous responsibilities placed on you by the
