Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh has raised concerns that no equal development could be made between the hills and valley due to lack of policies and announced that a separate land policy for hill districts will be introduced in the upcoming Manipur Legislative Assembly which is to be held in July.
Biren was speaking at the unveiling of ‘Manipur Vision 2047’ at CM Secretariat on Wednesday.
In the next 25 years under ‘Manipur Vision 2047’, various developmental works, including construction of ring road for valley area, roads connecting border areas of Manipur by passing through entire headquarters of hill districts etc. will be taken up, he said.
Due to the lack of proper planning in the past, Manipur could not make equal progress in a timely manner. However, the ‘Manipur Vision 2047’ will help in making development with ease, he said.
In five districts for the valley areas, the state cabinet has given approvals under the MLR Act and further made resolutions for introducing separate land policies.
A meeting was conducted along with the MLAs of hill districts and discussions were held to introduce a separate land policy for hill districts, he said. With the help of India Infrastructure Finance Company (IIFC), the vision will be fulfilled, he added.
