During the visit, he had announced that one ground would be developed in each village as an incentive under chief minister’s Green Manipur Mission. He also said that bringing infrastructure development in the interior portion of the state at par with the valley region would foster good relations and respect among different communities.
Biren had then assured that the state government would send a proposal to the Centre for upgrading the road from Kangpokpi to Tamei and Tamei to Kuilong for better connectivity.
The chief minister also assured that the office of the sub deputy collector at Kuilong will be made functional soon and would be upgraded to Office of the sub divisional officer if necessary.

Informing about various welfare schemes of the government during the December visit, N Biren asked the people of Kuilong to avail the benefits of the schemes as certain government departments had set up stalls to provide services during the outreach programme.
