On Wednesday, Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh appealed to the Manipur Integrity Coordinating Committee (COCOMI) to withdraw the Manipur Sangai Festival boycott.
The on-going Sangai festival 2019 had been boycotted by COCOMI, a coordinating body of major civil society organizations that led a series of public movements in the state demanding protection of Manipur's interest.
Speaking at a press conference in Imphal's Chief Minister's Secretariat's Durbar Hall, Biren Singh said Manipur Sangai Festival is organized for the future of Manipur's people.
He added that spreading the State's image to the world is not only a pride for Manipur, but also a forum.
Narrating the meeting of the COCOMI group with union home minister Amit Shah, N Biren said despite his busy schedules due to the ongoing parliamentary session and political developments in Maharashtra and so on, Amit Shah gave the appointment for an hour-long meeting in which COCOMI leaders had the opportunity to remind the union home minister of all the grievances and apprehensions of the people of Manipuri.
