A project commencement programme for construction of a Football Ground with Natural Grass at Lamlai was held at Lamlai Ground, Imphal East on Sunday with Chief Minister N Biren Singh and Power Minister Thongam Biswajit as chief guest and president respectively.
The programme was organised by the state Youth Affairs and Sports department, Government of Manipur.

The Football Ground will be constructed with an estimated cost of around Rs 8 crore.
On the occasion, N Biren Singh stated that development works needed to be continued, although the State has been passing through a rough phase. As such, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated and laid the foundation of various projects worth Rs 3500 crore (approx.) for Manipur.


Of the important projects for which the foundation stones were laid, the construction of Football Grass with Natural Grass at Lamlai was also included and so the state government has decided to commence the construction work today, he added.

He continued that the government had also sent a proposal to construct a sports complex covering different disciplines for Imphal East at Lamlai. Appreciating the women and youths for bravely facing the hardship due to the current situation of the State, he also stressed the importance of hard work and dedication in every field for development.

The indigenous people of Manipur have been standing together against those forces trying to disintegrate the bonding among different communities of the state, he said urging the public not to disturb the movement of vehicles and people, as we have been living together since many years.

CM Biren maintained that his government since its formation in 2017, had been trying to preserve the historical and sacred places of the state, informing that security forces had been deployed at foothill areas to prevent tensions.

He also stated that the state government had been working tirelessly for ensuring security and safety of the state and its people.

Referring to a memorandum submitted by the locals of Lamlai assembly constituency, he assured them to deploy State Security Forces at Thamnapokpi, Gwaltabi and other areas.
