CCpur, November 24 2022: Chief Minister N Biren Singh today inaugurated a three-day Churachandpur chapter of the Manipur Sangai Festival at the picturesque Geljang Resort, amidst cultural fervour and musical extravaganza.

Speaking at the occasion, he called upon all concerned to let go past grudges and bitterness, and move forward to usher in a new era with a new mind-set.

"We must forgive and forget the past with the celebration of this festival of oneness," he said and added that the theme encompasses equal development, mutual respect, and peaceful coexistence of all.

Many leaders had the dreams of achieving unity and oneness among the diverse communities of the State and the country like different flowers blooming in one garden.

That dream has now been realised with the cooperation of the public.

"Seeing this reality makes me emotional", he said.

The State Government is very practical and committed to bring equal development to all parts of the State and maintain mutual trust among the people.

Manipur is constituted by diverse people and as such development should not concentrate in a particular area.

With this commitment, the Government is working for equitable development, Biren said.

The worth of a Government or a Chief Minister is known by their deeds, not on the basis of word of mouth, he said.

He said that the present State government is guided by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's mission of Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas and Sabka Prayas.

These are the basic foundation of the State Government's policies and actions.

For instance, there were many deficits in Churachandpur Hospital during the corona pandemic.

The hospital is now equipped better after it was realised by the Govt.Not only this, a medical college is given, Biren said.

He urged the people of Churachandpur to look after the medical college like their own but without any sectarian attitude because "we are one".

He also stressed the need to foster better inter-community relations by learning and understanding each other, particularly languages.

Biren further called upon all concerned to do away with ethno-centric and ethnic based politics.

Rather, all must realise that they are proud citizens of India and Manipur.

The Chief Minister also urged all concerned to plant more trees in catchment areas so that water flows perennially in all rivers.
