Imphal, November 01 2009: The Jessami Village Council has urged upon the State Government to expedite implementation of development programmes in Jessami area of Ukhrul district.

Addressing a press meet at Manipur Press Club here this afternoon, Jessami Village Council chairman Kanmi Wazah lamented that their patient waiting for five days to call on the Chief Minister has proved futile.

Saying that they have met with Youth Affairs and Sports Minister N Biren even as they could not meet the Chief Minister, the chairman said that have put forth different matters about development in Jessami area to the YAS Minister.

The Minister also assured that the Chief Minister would be visiting Jessami within the current month to make a direct assessment of the condition prevailing there.

Earlier, Chief Minister Okram Ibobi visited Jessami twice.

On all the two occasions, the Chief Minister gave assurance to the villagers for taking up different development programmes, Kanmi Wazah recalled.

He then urged upon the CM to put into action those assurances at the earliest.

After an SDC office was opened at Jessami in 1975, a Cabinet meeting had decided to upgrade the same office to SDO office.

Saying that in addition to its decision to station one SDPO at Jessami police station, the Government has also recruited 58/59 VDF personnel, the village council chairman urged the Government to implement its decisions and programmes without any further delay.

As per the latest delimitation exercise of District Council constituencies, Kharasom village has been included under Jessami constitution.

Observing that Jessami district council constituency has now 5052 voters, Kanmi Wazah appealed to the Government to explain this unreasonably high rate of growth in the number of voters.

With no doctors stationed at Jessami PHC, there have been many instances where patients died on the way to Ukhrul district Hqs, the chairman said while appealing to the Government to station adequate number of teachers at Jessami PHC.

He also urged the Government to build staff quarters for the Jessami SDO office.
