Imphal, Nov. 24

Chief Minister N. Biren Singh flagged off Manipur Sangai Run organised as a part of Manipur Sangai Festival at Khuman Lampak Sports Complex today.

Speaking on the occasion, the Chief Minister urged the public to fully participate in the annual tourism festival and not to trust any rumour which may create apprehension in the minds of the people. N. Biren Singh informed that he along with his Cabinet Ministers had a discussion with COCOMI representatives last night, adding that the State Government had decided to call the winter session of Manipur Legislative Assembly by December 20.

The Chief Minister further said that Union Home Minister Amit Shah, despite his busy schedules due to the ongoing Parliament session and political developments in Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh, had given appointment for meeting with COCOMI leaders on November 25 at 10 pm acknowledging the significance of the grievances and demands raised by the people of Manipur.

Stating that Manipur Sangai Festival is no more a simple festival but a pride for Manipur and also a platform to promote the identity of the State to the world, the Chief Minister said that many delegates from different countries are participating in the festival this year as well.

Observing that there is no state or country which does not have issues, the Chief Minister expressed his firm belief that Manipur would triumph in all the issues besieging the State because the people, the State Government and the Central Government are equally concerned with these issues. He also called for a collective effort to fight these issues instead of remaining divided and blaming each other.

Manipur Sangai Run, which was flagged off from Khuman Lampak, pass through locations like North AOC, Khongnang Ani Karak, Thangmeiband Road, PWD, Nityaipat Chuthek, Sanjenthong, Palace Gate, Hatta Road, Telipati Road, Lamlong Bridge, Dingku Road and culminated at the starting point (Khuman Lampak).
