Kangleipak Student’s Federation in a press release sought a cautious approach from the public and not to take hasty decisions with regards to efforts to include Manipuri script in the Indian currency. The student body urged the people to clarify through various public debates and discussions regarding the uncertainty of script to be used in the currency, as the Manipur Official Language Act of 1979 list “Manipuri” language with Bengali script as the official language of the state. It further warned that, on the eventuality of the use of Bengali script as Manipuri script on the currency due to indecisions regarding the script and failure to reach to a general consensus over the number of alphabets of Meetei/Meitei Mayek script, may mark a black letter day in annals of Manipuri History.
