Imphal, November 04 2017: Though thousands of people turned out to accord a grand reception to Chief Minister N Biren Singh during his maiden visit to Chandel district today, it was marred by the blazing words, "Welcome to South Nagalim" written in bold on the road near Japhou bazar.

The offending words were promptly erased by policemen but that surely left a bad taste in the mouth of many who accompanied the Chief Minister on the tour to Chandel for a Cabinet meeting .

Nevertheless N Biren was received by a large number of people at various places on his way to Chandel district headquarters .

A large number of people gathered on road sides to welcome the Chief Minister since morning holding placards that read 'Welcome Hon'ble CM N Biren Singh' and 'Long Live N Biren' .
