Even the organizers claimed Sangai festivals presented the different facts of Manipur in terms of Arts and Culture, Indigenous Sports, Eco and Adventures Tourism avenue. The festival has earned the reputation of facilitating traders from outside the state to showcase their merchandise.
In the light of this murmuring about the cultural extravaganza of the state, the organizer Manipur Tourism Department needs to check some checklists beforehand to ensure that the festival represent the people of Manipur.
