CHANDEL, July 12: Chief Minister Okram Ibobi today said that the repairing work of the Chandel district headquarter road has been handed over to Border Road Task Force and the State government can’t repair it even though it understand the sufferings of the people due to the deplorable road condition.
Speaking after inaugurating the newly constructed mini secretariat complex at Chandel, the Chief Minister said however, the Centre has sanctioned Rs 13 crore recently for repairing the said road after the State government exerted pressure.
Today’s inaugural function was held at Multi-Purpose Hall of Mini Secretariat.
Works and Transport minister Dr Ratankumar Singh, Chandel MLA ST Nunghlung Victor and Tengnoupal MLA D Korungthang also attended the function as the functional president and guests of honour respectively
While thanking the engineers, contractors and the public for extending co-operation during the construction of the mini secretariat complex, the Chief Minister said that public co-operation is indeed very important for successfully implementing developmental works.
So, every organisation should extend cooperation instead of disturbing the public welfare programs, he said.
Instructions have been given to all the concerned contractors and engineers to complete the construction works of the 50-bedded District hospital and mini stadium latest by December, so that it could be handed over to the people of Chandel district as Christmas gift, the State Chief Minister said.
The All Tribal Students Union Manipur (ATSUM) led by Emboi Serto and various other civil organisations also submitted their respective memoranda to the Chief Minister.
The Chief Minister also visited the construction sites of sports complex and district hospital at Chandel Christian village before inaugurating the mini secretariat complex which consists of district level officer’s office building, a 550 capacity multi-purpose hall, single and double room transit hostel, security barrack among others.
