IMPHAL, Dec 29 - Manipur Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh, accompanied by senior Ministers and MLAs, on Tuesday inaugurated two power sub-stations in two remote villages in Manipur�s Churachandpur district.

Ibobi was airlifted from Imphal along with State Health Minister Phungzathang Tonsing and Irrigation and Flood Control Minister Ngamthang Haokip to the remote villages of Sibapurikhal in Tipaimukh constituency and Sinzawl in Thanlon constituency for the functions which were attended by Parliamentary Secretary Vungzagin Valte, Chairman of Hill Areas Committee Dr Chaltonlien Amo, MLA Ginsuanhao and top officials of the Power department.

The team first landed at Sibapurikhal to inaugurate a 33/11 KV power sub-station. Speaking at the inaugural function, the Chief Minister said that the government is giving more focus to improve health care facilities, power supply and drinking water facility in the interior hill villages.

Stating that the State Government is taking all steps for equal development of the hills and valley, he said the government is also targeting to complete construction of SDO/BDO offices in the area during the current financial year.

He added that the locals will be given priority in recruitment. He informed the gathering that the government is considering to install another power sub-station at Tipaimukh area. �Once the proposal materialises, the people in the area will be getting power supply round the clock,� he said. The Chief Minister�s team was again airlifted by helicopter to Sinzawl village to inaugurate the second power sub-station.

A Joint Action Committee in Churachandpur district which is opposing the passing of �anti-tribal bills� in Manipur Assembly has boycotted the programmes saying �it was a ploy to appease the tribal populace as the power sub-stations are already functional.�
