They began their inspection with the Tedim-Manipura River Bridge (Phiton) project in Tedim Township jointly conducted by Myanmar Ministry of Border Affairs and India, where officials reported on the construction status of the bridge and Union Minister Lt-Gen Ye Aung coordinated on the long-term durability of the bridge.
Later, the Union Minister inspected the Manipura River Bridge (Twidam) and coordinated with the local people and Chin State government members to prevent overweight vehicles from crossing the bridge.
