While addressing the media, CM Biren said that various infrastructure development works had been taken up to generate income and to provide employment to youths of the state. The construction of the Sangai Ethnic Park is a long-term investment to generate income and it will do away with the expenditure incurred to set up the venue for the Sangai Festival every year, he added. He further stated that the tourist destinations being developed at various places across the state will help in earning regular income for the state.

The chief minister informed that the state government is in process of establishing a Tourist Police, which will be attached to the superintendent of police of every district. Basic training of two to three months will be given to them. They will wear a different uniform and will not bear arms, he added. He continued that the tourist police will be used to guide tourists visiting the state.
