Imphal: Chief minister N. Biren Singh on Wednesday inaugurated two bridges and the southern pavilion of Luwangpokpa Multi Sports Complex, Luwangsangbam in Imphal East district.
The bridges were constructed over the Imphal River at Lairikyengam Leikai-Heikrumakhong and Keisham Mapa-Kairang in Heingang AC under the PMGSY scheme. Construction of both the bridges began in March 2019. On the other hand, the southern pavilion of Luwangpokpa Multi-sports Complex was constructed with NLCPR funds of DoNER Ministry with the state water resources department as the implementing agency.
The multi-sports complex could become a reality as the elders of the locality protected enough land for it with a farsighted vision. There is still enough space for further expansion and development of the complex, Biren said.
Remembering the early tough days towards developing the complex, he said development of the complex began with just Rs 1.40 crore.
Regarding distribution of fertilizer, Biren assured that all the eligible farmers would definitely get fertilizer soon. As distribution is done through the laid down rules under official procedures, it is not possible to make it available to all the farmers at one go, he said while adding that every eligible farmer would get their share soon.
