A Science Centre Cum Planetarium for Kakching District will be set up soon at Angaan Hill.
This was told to media persons by Kakching MLA Mayangkambam Rameshwor on Thursday during his official visit at Eco Park located at Angaan Hill of Kakching for setting up the said Science Centre Cum Planetarium.
MLA Rameshwor continued that the land where the Eco Park is situated has been a state land and managed by Alliance For Development Manipur (ADAM) as of now. Setting up a Science Centre cum Planetarium at this park is most suitable and it is believed that by setting up such a centre will surely generate employment among the youths. Several eco-friendly and environment friendly projects can also be taken up at the site and it is happy to learn that eco park itself had already been announced to be upgraded to an eco-tourism spot, MLA informed.
Taking part at the visit, Director of Science and Technology, E.Ibocha stated that the District Science Centre will have to be set up for each district of the state, but no centre is being set up in any district so far except the one at Imphal. Luckily, the department is trying to set up a District Science Centre at Kakching District which is a new District of the state and we are visiting the site with the local MLA for the matter, he added.
