By Correspondent

IMPHAL, Nov 4 - Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh on Sunday said that around 460 acres of land has been identified for restoration of a water body at Lamphelpat area here to avert flood in Imphal and adjoining areas during the monsoon season.

The Chief Minister was speaking at a reception organised by Keishamthong United Club at Kwakeithel Moirangpurel Lampak in Imphal West district. Deputy Chairman of Manipur State Planning Board S Rajen and others attended the function.

Stating that his government has introduced many initiatives for the welfare of the people, he said that the government is committed to work tirelessly for the benefit of the people.

He stated that out of the seven Women�s Markets constructed in various districts by the present government, six have already been inaugurated.

If we want to root out corruption in the State, the change should begin with bureaucrats and politicians, he said. It is the responsibility of the people�s representative to work for the welfare of the people, he added. Since the installation of the present government, the law and order situation has improved a lot with the support and co-operation of the people.

Saying that there was a gap between the government and the people in the past, he claimed the �Go to Village� initiative has been able to deliver various government services at the doorsteps of the people and has minimised the gap between the two, he added.

The government has also initiated a �War on Drugs� which resulted in the destruction of thousands of acres of illegal poppy plantations in the State. Alternative livelihood arrangement has been made by the government for those farmers who were engaged in poppy cultivation, he added. He mentioned that around 600 people have been convicted so far for their involvement in illegal drug activities in the past one year.
