Manipur seeks Rs 100 crore from Centre for ring road along Myanmar border
Manipur government has sought Rs 100 crore from the Centre for construction of a ring road along Indo-Myanmar border.
Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh said the government had submitted a Rs 100-crore proposal to the Centre to construct a ring road along India-Myanmar border from the last village bordering Mizoram to the last point bordering Nagaland in Ukhrul district.
He said this on Monday while speaking at the inaugural function of a police station at Behiang village in Churachandpur district bordering Myanmar.
The chief minister said that the location of Behiang is strategically important as it can serve as the second corridor to South East Asian nations next to Moreh in the light of the Centre’s Act East Policy.
