ICOP launches poster campaign

IMPHAL| Jan 11

International Observation Committee on Puya Meithaba (ICOP) has launched a poster campaign today ahead of the 288rd anniversary of the day on which ancient Meitei scripts known as Puya were set ablaze. The day will be commemorated as Black Day on January 20.

The annual observance has been organised by ICOP, an apex body of Meitei National Front of Kangleipak and various civil society groups of the state to commemorate the incident of burning Puyas on the 23rd day of the month of Wakching in the Meitei calendar in 1729.

Addressing media persons at Pandam office, ICOP convener Moirangthem Naokhomba said school students will wear black badge from January 15 to January 17 to protest against the burning down of ancient scripts by the then king Pamheiba under the influence of Shantidas Gosai.

He appealed organisation or individuals to refrain from imposing bandhs, strikes or any form of agitation that will hamper the smooth observance of the day.

He further asked all people to extend all possible help and coordination in organising the observation day.
