Sir ,

The proposed Maharaj Chandra Kirti Memorial Park at Behiang village Churachandpur bordering Myanmar is one of the right step for stronger ties between Meetei and Kuki.
It was in the year 1885 that Kamhau Suhte from Ava(Burma) captured Maharaj Chandra  Kirti into Burma along with some of his subject .
Upon learned that Maharaj Chandra Kirti was captured by Kamhau Suhte and taken into Burma, the Kuki armies numbering around 500 forces went into Burma and rescued Maharaj Chandra Kirti from captivity and rethrone him as the Maharaj of Kanglei Manipur.
In the same year after returned from Kamhau  Suhte captivity, the Maharaja had a durbar in which he(Chandra Kirti) proclaimed that “ Hills are the wall, Kukis were the defenders ,oh! Manipur  land of jewels” and presented  Kuki armies leaders a swords in recognition of their bravery.
So it is justified that proposed Maharaj Chandra Kirti Memorial Park at Behiang which is going to be International Trade Centre in Churachandpur is to foster more ties between Meetei and Kuki in the days to come
Yours Sincerely,
L. Nehkholien Haokip
