Imphal: Manipur governor La. Ganesan extended his ‘heartiest’ greetings to the people of Manipur on the occasion of Khongjom Day, 2022.
Khongjom Day is celebrated on April 23 every year in Manipur remembering the supreme sacrifices made by our forefathers who died for the freedom of their motherland. Displaying tremendous courage and immense patriotism for their motherland they fought against the mightiest power of the world without even a thought of surrender, Ganesan said.
“On this occasion, while paying homage to the valiant heroes who fell at the battle of Khongjom and other fronts in the Anglo-Manipuri War of 1891, we must renew our vow to preserve and defend the sovereignty of our country and prepare to face any challenge that might come our way. Let us forget any differences and re-dedicate ourselves to the task of nation building. Let us strive for bringing understanding, peace and harmony amongst ourselves so that every citizen is free from wants,” the governor said.
