Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh along with some of his cabinet colleagues called on prime minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi on April 18.

This is the first time Biren Singh met the prime minister after taking oath as the chief minister of Manipur for the second consecutive term. The CM was accompanied by his cabinet colleagues – forest and environment minister Th Bishwajit Singh, education minister Y Khemchand and works minister Govindas Konthoujam – in the meeting.

During the meeting, the CM briefed the prime minister on the initiatives being taken up by his government to sustain peace and development in the state.

Biren Singh apprised the PM about the steps that his government has taken up to fight drugs and corruption in the state, official sources said.

Soon after assuming office as chief minister for the second consecutive term, N Biren Singh had said that his government’s first task would be to make Manipur a corruption-free state. He had also declared that his government would work “day and night” to root out corruption from the state.

To translate his commitment into work, Biren Singh had even strengthened the anti-corruption cell.

During the meeting with the prime minister, the chief minister along with cabinet colleagues also shared their vision to give an impetus to the growth trajectory of Manipur, Biren Singh wrote in his Facebook post after the meeting.

Biren Singh took oath as the chief minister of the state on March 21 after BJP retained power in the state by securing an absolute majority with 32 seats in the 60-member state assembly elections.
