Photo- exhibition of development projects in Bishnupur
A five day long photo exhibition on the theme ‘Bharat Nirman’ was held in the Bishnupur district of Manipur as a part of mass awareness programme of the centrally sponsored schemes. The Directorate of Advertising & Visual Publicity (DAVP), Ministry of Information and Broadcasting organised this programme in association with the Public Theatre Artistes’ Association, Nambol. The exhibition had 242 photos and continued till 27th October.
Photo exhibition is a very good medium to understand various development projects undertaken by any organisation including the state and central government. There have been a series of centrally sponsored schemes such as Indira Awas Yojana (IAY), NREGS, Urban Housing Scheme, Old Age Pension which have been brought for the welfare of the people. There have been many RTI applications seeking information about these schemes and some allegations of corruption have also been made. Such photo exhibitions are a convenient mode of pro-active dissemination of information to the public.
