IMPHAL | May 14 : Chief minister N. Biren Singh voiced apprehension that there is high possibility of influx of illegal migrants in the state. He was addressing at a press conference today at his Babupara office chamber regarding seizure of fake Aadhaar cards from Myanmarese nationals.
“Perhaps we need to verify all Aadhaar cards, we have a small population and such illegal migration raises serious issues” said Biren.
He notified that a security point will be kept at Imphal Tulihal airport to check the credentials of all arriving passengers and requested the public to bear the inconvenience.
Another order from Biren Singh will be to decommission the common service centres which are spread out across the state for Aadhaar enrolment.
On another topic, the CM said that repair works along the Imphal –Jiribam highway is progressing and bridges have been fixed to ensure movement of vehicles at the earliest. He lamented that certain outlawed organisations are kidnapping engineers and workers deployed along the NH-37. “Development is arrested by such criminal tactics, I sometimes feel ashamed to be a Manipuri, what would tourists feel, works cannot just go smoothly” said Biren.
He continued that some Belgian diplomats came to visit the state and met him, “The tourists texted me a condolence message of the bomb blast victims.”
