Tamenglong, Apr 14 (UNI) Manipur Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh launched the National Rural Employment Guarantee scheme at Tamenglong district headquarters yesterday.

Mr Singh, accompanied by information minister Gaikhangam, Rural development minister Md Allaudin, MLA Z Mangaibou and other senior government officials toured the district.

Under the new scheme, people of the district will be given the opportunity to work for 100 days in a year. The Centrally sponsored scheme will not pinch the state as the state will bear 10 percent of the total amount only.

Equal pay will be given to both men and women under the scheme, the Chief Minister declared.

All payments will be made within 15 days, sources added.

For 2006-07, a sum of Rs 28 crores will be sanctioned, including Rs 2 crores states' share.

Mr Singh further announced that the government was keen in developing the hill areas of the state and the BRO will take up road construction works in the district.

The government will also fill up all the vacant posts of the educational institutes in the hill areas, he added.

The Chief Minister laid the foundation stone of a Rs 254.52 power sub station at Tousem, which will provide power to 44 villages.

Later, Mr Singh visited Tamenglong headquarters to inaugurate a police station which will cover about 43 villages.
