Biren Singh said it was because of the trust reposed by people in the new government that it could accomplish its pledges and implement various developmental projects.He said that the indefinite economic blockade imposed by the United Naga Council on Manipur lasting over three-and-a-half months was lifted within two weeks of the formation of the coalition ministry. “The nine bodies in Churachandpur district during the anti-Inner Line Permit agitation were not claimed for more than 600 days. However, once the new government was formed, the bodies were given decent burials,” he added.However, Minister T. Shyamkumar admitted that the plan to clean up Imphal city was not a complete success as “just 10% has been achieved”.Sources said the government was not out of the woods yet as the UNC still maintains that it has not dropped its demand for the rollback of the formation of seven new districts.The Chief Minister has also set up an anti-corruption cell to probe various dubious transactions during the Congress government. One peon was suspended for delaying file movement while another was suspended for extorting money from the patients in JN Institute of Medical Sciences, Imphal.

Khemchand also announced an inquiry into the appointment of over 200 people in the Assembly secretariat before the elections.
