Speaking on the occasion, Nitin Gadkari announced that the foundation stone for an elevated highway in Imphal city as proposed by the State Government would also be laid soon for which DPR is being prepared.

The Union Minister said that the Centre has taken up various projects keeping with Prime Minister's desire to develop infrastructure in the North East.

Regarding Central Roads Fund (CRF), Shri Gadkari also assured to release additional funds of about Rs.250 crore as soon as the utilization certificates for earlier works are received from the State.

He also urged the Chief Minister to speed up land acquisition and utility shifting works in the State so that road projects could be expedited.

The Minister also informed that dredging has been completed in Brahmputra and Barak rivers, and it is now possible to transport people and consignments through waterways.

He also suggested linking of Imphal with this river routes.

He also called for adopting alternate fuel for public transport in the North East as it is cheaper and environment friendly.

Gadkari also highlighted the role of MSME sector in improving the employment and economic scenario in Manipur.

Informing about the recent expansion of MSME units, he exhorted the Chief Minister to consider setting up of Special Designing Centres where quality of local handloom and handicraft products can be improved for export to foreign countries.

In his speech, Chief Minister N.Biren Singh thanked Shri Nitin Gadkari for revamping Imphal-Jiribam and Imphal-Moreh roads.

He informed the Minister that condition of these two important roads are good in most sections though landslide happens in some places during rainy season.

He further said that Makru and Barak bridges, for which foundation stones were laid under the Union Minister's guidance, would be completed by the end of this year.

Stating that lots of developmental changes could be seen in the State ever since the erstwhile 'Look East Policy' was changed into 'Act East Policy' under the supervision of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, Shri N.Biren Singh said that works for upgradation of four-lane highway of Imphal-Moreh road are going on in full swing.

Construction of Imphal-Jiribam highway is also underway though the project was slightly delayed in the beginning due to land compensation issues.

Apart from it, construction of Moreh bypass road and Pallel-Chandel road would also start soon, he added.

Imphal being a small city, is very congested now, as such there is need for an elevated highway, Shri Biren said and added that people of Manipur are thankful to Shri Gadkari for responding positively to the proposal of the 25-km-long Imphal City elevated highway project.

He also requested the Minister to upgrade the Imphal-Moirang road to a four-lane highway.
