IMPHAL, Oct 15: In view of the scheduled inauguration of the three newly constructed market complexes of Khwairamband Keithel, Works Minister K Ranjit has been stationing himself together with engineers concerned to ensure that the market complexes are fully completed ahead of the inauguration.

All the necessary construction works would be completed by October 20, Ranjit claimed. Moreover, white washing work of the two market complexes constructed by NBCC is going on in full swing.

To provide uninterrupted water supply to the three market complexes, three water tanks of capacity 2.50 lakh liters each have been constructed.

Moreover, for providing potable water to Kangla, the main road in front of IMC office was dug out and water pipes laid last night under the supervision of the Works Minister and engineers of PHED and Power Department
