On reaching the venue to attend the evening session of the All Assam Manipuri People’s Convention, the Chief Minister was accorded a warm welcome by the people of the Manipuri communities of Assam.

Speaking as the Chief Guest of the function, N. Biren Singh expressed his profound happiness for the huge turnout of Manipuris in Assam which include Meiteis, Meitei Pangal, etc. who came from every nook and corner of Assam to attend the convention.

It is believed that the Meiteis, the Ahom of Assam, and the Nagas once lived in harmony at Makhel village in Senapati District of Manipur, he stated and added that in an attempt to relive that good old memories or myth, the Reunited Heritage Park of Manipur will be constructed at the place.

Asserting that we should never forget the supreme sacrifices made by our forefathers in preserving and protecting our land, rich culture, tradition and heritage, the Chief Minister said that we should stand together against anyone who tries to distort our great history. 

He stated that due to internal disagreements among ourselves in the past, our forefathers gave room for external colonial and invasive powers to rule our land for example the Seven Years Devastation, British invasion, etc. As such, we should learn these lessons from history and always stand united as there is a saying that united we stand, divided we fall, he added.

Regarding the construction of a Manipur Bhavan in Assam, N Biren Singh announced that the Manipur Government is working for the procurement of land and announced that once the process is complete, a Cabinet decision will be taken very soon.

The Chief Minister appealed to the Manipuris in Assam to be loyal to the State and Country and added that any type of grievances, maybe educational, political, health, or demographic which they couldn’t approach to the Assam Government could be conveyed through him.  He also highlighted priority will be also given to them, while visiting Manipur, for staying in the guest house for chiefs of all hill districts constructed in Imphal.

Minister L Sushindro Meitei;  MLA Kongkham Robindro; Chief Advisor AAMYA Ksh. Kundan; Vice President IPSA Manipur Khuraijam Athouba; Manipur General Secretary Manipuri Sahitya Parishad Assam, Prof. Kh. Dhiren Singh also attended the function among others.
