The bus service covers 92 km from the MST Complex at Moirangkhom to Somdal village.
Speaking on the occasion, Biren Singh said that the bus service could be taken as a big step towards filling the communication and developmental gaps between different areas of the state.
Informing that the State Government had been putting in maximum effort to bring development, he said that the state had witnessed drastic changes in hill areas with improvement in road infrastructure, security, education and health sector among others.
The MST was revived in 2019, with 30 buses providing services to 12 routes at low fares for all.
He further appealed the public not to create any disturbance during the construction works as proper road infrastructure is of utmost importance to bring equal development in all areas of the State.
The bus service will depart from Somdal village at 7 am and from the inter-state bus terminus in Imphal for Somdal at 1pm on every working day. The bus fare for the same will be Rs 200.
