The much-awaited Imphal to Kasom Khullen state bus transport service was launched in Manipur State Transport office complex on Thursday.
Speaking on the occasion, state Transport Minister Khashim Vashum said the Imphal to Kasom Khullen MST bus transport service is a long-awaited service. There were issues of road blocks or any other every week. However, the road condition is well and good now and we hope there will be no more roadblocks, the minister said.
The minister also informed that travellers will have to get a ticket and pay tax for the service provided. Though most people in Kamjong district have their own private vehicle to travel, this service has been launched for those who don’t have conveyance, he added.
He also assured to extend more services to Kamjong district.
MLA Leishiyo Keishing said that the service will be helpful to the Tangkhul community particularly and appealed to the people of Kasom Khullen to extend support on service.
The MLA further called for extending the service till Bungtung near Burma border as the transport service till Kasom Khullen is 60 km only and there are more villages like Nambasee, Wanglee, Namlee.
The bus service from Imphal to Kasom Khullen via Yairipok will depart from MST Moirangkhom.
The minister flagged off the bus in the presence of MLA Leishiyo Keishing, transport secretary Micheal Achom and Kasom Khullen headquarter headman, Wungwung Shinglai.
