Imphal: Manipur works minister Thongam Biswajit Singh on Saturday inspected the site for constriction of the newly created Noney district deputy commissioner’s office complex at Longmai Part-I at Noney district headquarters.
Biswajit, also the state government spokesperson, said the project has an administrative approval of Rs 17.49 crore and work order amounting to Rs 15 crore (approx). There was a delay in starting the project due to issues about site finalisation, he added.
Chief Minister N Biren Singh had earlier laid the foundation stone for the infrastructural development on March 5, 2019.
He found the site suitable for the construction. The minister said today’s visit was under the guidance of the Chief Minister. He further observed that the site is just about 15-20 minutes drive from the highway and not very steep as was previously conceived.
Expressing his gratitude to the general public for warmly welcoming him, minister Biswajit said the office would be an asset for the general public once it’s completed.
He has also assured to look into the different demands of the people, including road development, power supply, etc. submitted through separate memoranda.
Further in his speech, he also said that Manipur would prosper and develop when people work together. The present government believes in delivering outputs for the welfare of the public, he said.
The function was attended by Deputy Commissioner Robert Kshetrimayum, Superintendent of Police Ningshum Vashum, Public Works Department Chief Engineer (National Highway) T Robindro, and others.
