Mentioned may be made that, Imphal River which flows south of the Kangpokpi bisect Kangpokpi and Haijang Road where an RCC Bridge is highly needed to be constructed for smooth movement of passerby and vehicles during monsoon season.

MLA Nemcha said that, Haijang village has existed for more than 50 years but as far as development is concerned, the Haijang –Kangpokpi road which is the only connecting road to the outside world for the denizens of Haijang village and the bridge remain has been in the present status for more than 50 years now with no signs of changing, adding that they cannot but continue to live under the mercy of the weather which is normally not merciful.

She also expressed hope that the Work Minister considering the hardships faced by the denizens of Haijang village in particulars and the surrounding areas in general will do the best at the earliest.

The inspecting team also went to inspect Tumnoupokpi to Liyai Kalapahar Kongpao road and Kharkhola to Chandraman road as well as Parsian road for black topping.

Unfortunately, while the team was on the way to inspect the road connecting Parsian village from NH-2, it came across some unwanted elements moving in the area.

The front liner security party of the entourage opened blank fire as preventive measures.

Subsequently, the unwanted element group ran away from the spot and the inspecting team returned to Imphal.

There is no report of any casualty from the incident.

MLA Nemcha while speaking to the media persons who were apart of the inspection tour said, it is very unfortunate that due to some unwanted element the security party was compelled to blank fire which panicked everyone.

She urged every individual to cooperate in the course of development programme under way in the constituency in public interest.
