Pu Lalfakzuala in his official address emphasised the important role of the government officials and beneficiaries in the successful implementation of the govt. policies and programme. While urging all concerned to be sincere with their own responsibilities of executing govt. works he said it is the public ultimately who gets to enjoy the benefits of such policies and programme. “An employee must realize that his service is in lieu of the payment he gets as salary. The same principle applies with the beneficiaries of jobcard holders, IAY, etc.”
In alluding to the unethical practice by students during exams he strongly urged the student community to work hard in their studies and not to depend on unscrupulous means to pass an exam. In addressing the students he said, “The future will be your responsibility and it is important you achieve success by sheer hard work so that our next generation is in safe hand.”
He informed that AADHAAR Card registration has become urgent especially for the jobcard holders. Jobcard registration will get cancelled for those who do not possess a AADHAAR card after a certain period. He said, “The govt. is planning to increase the number of operators for AADHAAR enrolment.”
While clearing a general misperception on taking a vaccine he said vaccine is not dangerous. “Vaccine is important and necessary for prevention of diseases.”
While making an appeal to all to open a bank account at the earliest he said the govt. is going for a transition to cashless transaction in an effort to fight corruption. “The government has already introduced e-payment system like EFMS/PFMS for making transaction pertaining to many govt. schemes. From February payment to jobcard holders will be made only through e-payment. Use of Cheque system will be phased out.”

Speaking on the occasion Dg. Dayal Chandra Chakma made reference to the statement of the opposition leaders made in the YCA conference at Borapansury with regards to issue of appointment without advertisement and said, “They have no moral right to comment on the issue. If they are really intent in spirit with their statement they would have taken measures to change the system when they were in power during their tenure.”He made mention of many works accomplished by the present government of CADC like Kamalanagar town bus service, blacktopping of Kamalanagar town road and approach road to new Kamalanagar College Building, installation of solar power plants at CADC offices and at new CADC Secretariat, introduction of MDC LAD Fund, resumption of driving school, facilitating HUDCO loan, launching CADC Trophy, etc.
