In the briefing, Biren said that the state government has been taking up various initiatives to figure out any manipulation of land records or issuance of land in forest areas or government. To execute the steps effectively, a committee was also formed. Anyone who involved in such wrong deeds or acts can surrender before legal action is being taken up.
The role of government is not just restricted to bringing infrastructure development but also to rectify all mistakes or misconduct that will deteriorate the future generation, he added while advising all bureaucrats to perform their service with honesty and sincerity.
He also expressed his satisfaction with the judiciary of the state for their cooperation in the Government’s initiative to take up legal action against offenders of the law.
