Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh on Sunday said that progress of the state and its infrastructural development was dependent on the dedicated services of engineers. 
Speaking at the inaugural function of Mid-term council meeting of the Indian Engineers’ Federation (Northeast Region) Imphal’s Hotel Classic, Singh asserted that engineers have a great role in a society. 
“Engineers have the responsibility of ensuring proper planning and effective implementation of various developmental projects in the state,” he said. 
He added that fulfilling the commitments of all-round development was a collective effort and the contributions of the engineers of the state will go a long way towards achieving the goal of the government’s ‘Sabka Saath,Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas.’
Singh informed that the government was planning to construct elevated highways and ring roads for better road connectivity in the state. The state government has submitted a proposal with an estimated cost of around Rs1000 crore, he added.
In order to streamline the engineering departments, he urged the engineer fraternity to submit a proposal to maintain a proper transfer and postings policy of the engineering departments under the state government. 
The chief minister further said that the state government will discuss about the re-creation of the post of secretary (technical) soon. 
He maintained that engineers should not work under pressure of politicians, bureaucrats etc. and should hear their own conscience to execute good work.  
The chief minister hoped that such meeting will help bring about better understanding and appreciation of the challenges and issues facing by the engineering community and suggestions on how best to address them.
State forest and environment minister Th Shyamkumar, Executive Council Members of Indian Engineers’ Federation (Northeast Region), retired chief engineers and engineers of various engineering departments attended the function. 
The meeting was organised by Engineering Association of Manipur.
