Meeyamgi Thougalloi Manipur (MTM) Condemns Governor’s Decision on Sajibu Nongma Panba Cheiraoba as Full Working Day in Manipur
It has come to the notice of MTM that Manipur Governor had issued an order to make Sajibu Nongma Panba Cheiraoba as full working day. We express our dismay on the governor's order to observe “Sajibu Nongma Panba Cheiraoba” as a full working day.
This day is not about having sumptuous meals and climbing some nearby hills by Meetei community. This is the day, we remember our great forefathers and give reverence to them.
Sajibu Nongma Panba Cheiraoba is the day we worship our Maker and Protector to mark our Meetei New Year and continue our race in the generations to come.
Honb'le Governor of Manipur, Smt Najma Heptullah's decision is of doubtful intention to the indigenous people of Manipur.
Meeyamgi Thougalloi Manipur (MTM) strongly condemns such a move and staunchly believes that no force on the earth has the power to erase our indigenous culture.
