Leader of the House, Chief Minister N Biren Singh, on Saturday said that three hovercraft procured in 2010 are in the custody of the superintendent of police, Bishnupur and necessary steps will be taken to utilise them in the state tourism sector and other revenue generating purposes.

The chief minister was replying to a question raised by MLA K Ranjit Singh during the second session of the 12th Manipur Legislative Assembly on Saturday.

Responding to the question of MLA Md Ashab Uddin, state Works Minister Govindas Konthoujam informed the House that the works department has issued a notice for eligible contractors for the construction of Jiri-Tipaimukh road earlier.

But due to the unavailability of eligible bidders, the tender process could not be completed and remained cancelled, he said.

The department will soon try to notify a new tender for starting the construction of the Jiri-Tipaimukh road, he added.

The above mentioned ongoing works are targeted for completion within September, 2022, he said.
