 Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh on Friday inaugurated five different projects apart from laying  foundation stones for as many as 46 others of a total estimated cost of Rs 180 crore, at a function at chief minister’s secretariat complex Imphal.

Addressing the occasion, Singh said that the BJP-led coalition government was prioritized development of hill areas of the state while acknowledging that hill districts were less developed as compared with valley districts. 

Claiming that various developmental projects were being taken up in different parts of hill districts, the chief minister hoped that people would be able to see a landscape change in hill districts once these projects are completed.

Singh informed that transit accommodations for doctors, nurses and teachers were being constructed at 19 different places in hill districts and Jiribam district. Of these, he said, accommodations at Churachandpur, Singhat and Borobekara have been inaugurated today while works in remaining places would be completed by December this year. 

“There would be no problem for accommodation for doctors, nurses and teachers posted in these areas,” he said.

To provide air connectivity to interior areas of Manipur like Thanlon (207 km), Parbung (310 km) etc. at an affordable price and to boost air tourism, heliports would be constructed at Tamenglong, Thanlon, Parbung, Moreh and Jiribam, he informed. 

The CM also said it was encouraging to see fewer disturbances in taking up developmental projects in hill areas, adding that it is because of “people’s faith and support.” 

State CAF & PD minister Karam Shyam, agriculture minister V Hangkhanlian, MLAs and high ranking officials of the state government attended the function organized by the Manipur Police Housing Corporation Ltd.

The projects, which were inaugurated by the chief minister were:  transit accommodation for doctors and teachers at Singhat, Churachandpur headquarters and Borobekra (Jiribam), 100 SM two-storeyed barrack with toilet facility at Manipur Police Training College, Pangei and model police station at Porompat in Imphal East district.

The projects, for which foundation stones were laid, included among others construction of heliports at Jiribam, Tamenglong, Moreh, Thanlon and Parbung to be implemented by the state transport department.
