Imphal: Manipur chief minister N. Biren Singh greets the women of Manipur on the occasion of Nupi Lan Numit.
“I join the people of Manipur in paying tribute to the brave Imas (mothers) of Manipur who fought against the exploitative socio-economic and political system of the British colonial rule,” Biren said.
Nupi Lan is undeniably the most important movement of the Manipuri women in the colonial era. The agitation witnessed the courage and leadership of Manipuri women, he added.
“Even today, our womenfolk take the lead on various issues and have been bringing socio-political reforms in our state. We are fortunate that these are pages in our history herefrom we can draw inspiration and pride,” the chief minister said.
Nupi Lan day is observed on December every year in the state.
