different communities living together with mutual respect since his early days as a
politician. He also added that the State Government had been setting up various

districts considering the hardship faced by the people while accessing healthcare
facilities earlier.

the ambit of the Constitution of India, Shri N. Biren Singh urged the public to give
constructive criticism with regard to any activities of Government and refrain
from negative views hindering the developmental works taken up for the welfare
of the public. He continued that the Go to Hills 2.0 had been organised to deliver
the benefits of certain welfare schemes to the beneficiaries directly to their
doorsteps, easing the hardship faced by the beneficiaries in accessing the
benefits, avoiding middleman to take away the benefits wrongfully. The
Government is planning to achieve coverage of tap water supply to 80 percent
households of the State by the end of this year, he added.

He informed that projects worth Rs. 534.47 crore are ongoing in Chandel

faculties from Delhi will directly come to the State and take classes and added
