Sign of times to come

By Yambem Laba

‘The first BJP government in Manipur under N Biren Singh appears to be set for a long innings ahead but he needs to show where he means business’

The outgoing Congress chief minister Okram Ibobi Singh ruled Manipur for 15 years. His bravado against bete noire NSCN (IM) general secretary Thuingaleng Muivah apart, he had much to answer for.

Firstly, the accusation against him from Prime Minister Narendra Modi – that he was the 10 per cent chief minister. The Manipuri people almost tolerated him for the 10 per cent cut, which he supposedly levied on all financial transactions that passed across his desk. And, according to a former accountant-general of Manipur, he has allegedly amassed wealth that can even shame Ali Baba!

Potential of Shirui festival

The first state level Shirui festival in Ukhrul organized by the BJP led coalition Government should be welcome by everyone denizens of the state with arms wide open. The initiative that aims at preserving the Shirui from extinction and exposing the tourism potential of Ukhrul district has been long over due. Ignoring the fact Shirui is the state flower of Manipur, the successive Government in the past have miserably failed to take any pragmatic measure to preserve the rare Lily found only in the Shirui hills of Ukhrul district besides developing tourist sites. One cannot deny that since its discovery in 1946 the villagers of the Shirui are the sole protectors of the lily which now is on the brink of extinction.
