Moreover, railway is expected to reach Imphal via Jiribam soon, he said and added that people and the media of Jiribam should play key roles in the strict enforcement of Inner Line Permit System by remaining vigilant and promptly informing the authority whenever any wrongdoing happens. Media should be strengthened and at the same time, people and the authority should also be sincere in this regard, the Chief Minister observed. Stating that media is known as the fourth pillar of democracy, N. Biren Singh opined that media should not concentrate only on negative reporting.
