Chief Minister N. Biren Singh today inspected some construction works going on around Imphal City. The Chief Minister first visited Kangla and took firsthand account of construction of bridge over Imphal River at the eastern side of Kangla to pave the way for opening of Nongpok Thong (Eastern Gate) of the Fort.
From there, he went to Cheirao Ching and inspected the ongoing construction of Eco-Tourism Park there. The project is likely to get inaugurated within this month.
The Chief Minister was accompanied by Works Minister Thongam Biswajit, Education Minister Sorokhaibam Rajen, Labour & Employment Minister Thokchom Satyabrata, MAHUD Minister Okram Henry, Deputy Speaker Kongkham Robindro, State Planning Board Deputy Chairman L. Rameshwor, Manipur Building & Other Construction Workers’ Welfare Board Chairman Heikham Dingo and Government officials among others.
Addressing the media, N. Biren said that the State Government is committed towards protection and preservation of sacred sites of Kangla and has been putting in efforts to revive the aged old culture and traditions of the State. He added that a footpath/cycling track would be constructed along the Imphal river at the eastern side of Kangla where no vehicles would be allowed to enter.
The Chief Minister informed that antique remains of an old structure were found at the construction site and the sample had been sent for further archaeological research. He also stated the old structure would be preserved in its form without causing any damage while constructing a new bridge over it.
Meanwhile, Rajya Sabha MP Maharaja Sanajaoba Leishemba also moved a Special Motion during the ongoing Parliament Session to declare Kangla as a World Heritage Site.
