Stating that repairing work of NH-39 has begun since yesterday with fund available with the State Government, Manipur Works Minister K Ranjit has appealed to the Senapati District Students’ Association (SDSA) to call off the ongoing highway bandh. Speaking as chief guest in the annual convention of the Mayang Imphal Kendra Congress Committee at Khuman Stadium, Mayang Imphal Konchak, Ranjit said that the Government of India has sanctioned Rs 50 crores to develop Maram-Senapati section of NH-39, reported The Sangai Express. However, no local contractor was found qualified till the pre-qualification tender process. As it would have taken some time to complete the tender process, the State Government engaged ten local contractors to start repairing the highway with fund at its disposal. Altogether with 100 metric tonnes of bitumen, rollers, earth-moving machines like JCBs and other necessary machinery have been sent to start the highway repairing work. The Works Minister also appealed to the SDSA to help avoid abduction of machinery drivers/operators and engineers. Ranjit went to claim that no Chief Minister had ever taken birth in Manipur who is so much concerned with welfare of Muslim minority and hill districts like Okram Ibobi.
