Biren also stated that Churachandpur is the state’s hope in terms of IAS, IPS, Bankers, NABARD etc. The CM, however, apologized that Churachandpur, with its potentials, had no ministers in his present cabinet and stated that he will be their Minister in charge as it was dear to him and there will be no shortfall for the District.

The CM also talked about the works to be done under the 100 days programme of the government since it was formed, promising that under this 100-days programme the only Medical College in the hills and Amusement Park, etc. will be inaugurated in Churachandpur. He said that due to Covid and instability in the government formation in the last term, there are gaps but that will be improved in his second term as CM and called on the people to thank the PM of India for providing free health care and free rice, apart from others.
