Imphal, October 12 2011:
Stating that the people of Sadar Hills have nothing to be happy about and in no mood of celebration, though Kut is a festival of joy over harvest, the SHDDC has appealed to 'Chinlung' community living in Manipur to consider the volatile sentiments of Sadar Hills people and share their state of being without any reason to be happy.
"The Kut season this year is going to be a time of pain and anguish for us," SHDDC said in a release.
It also acknowledged the cooperation extended by Chandel District Kut Committee in response to their earlier appeal not to hold any Kut celebration this year.
