Today’s cabinet also discussed the governor’s address for the 3rd session of 12th Manipur Legislative Assembly which is scheduled to commence from February 2.

He went on to say that cabinet also approved the bifurcation of 90 police personnel from Imphal West for the prosecution branch.

The cabinet also approved amendments to the Dhanamanjuri University Act.

It also approved faculty recruitment for the newly opened Churachandpur Medical College and the upgradation of healthcare facilities.

As promised by Chief Minister N Biren Singh during his recent visit to Jessami in Ukhrul district, the IPR minister announced that the cabinet approved the upgradation of Jessami primary health centre to a community health centre. The Tamei PHC will also be upgraded to CHC, he added.
