Imphal: “Once we are in the state government service or become a legislator we should start thinking as a Manipuri and should not restrict ourselves to our community or village,” Manipur chief minister N. Biren Singh said.
The chief minister said this emphasising on the need to build a united front in the state. He was speaking during inauguration of a 30-bedded Psychiatry ward, public shed and child care centre at Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Medical Sciences on Saturday.
“We need to come out of thinking and working only for our community or village, but instead work for the whole society to encourage unity, oneness in the state and country,” Biren said.
“Under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, we are able to strengthen the spirit and idea of an Ek-Bharat Shrestha Bharat,” he added.
“We should not work on sectarian beliefs and instead look at everyone as equals. Today we are able to bring unity with support of the public,”
