Manipur Governor, CM appeal to work for peace & maintain cleanliness

Imphal, Oct 2 (UNI) Manipur Governor Anusuiya Uikey, Chief Minister N Biren Singh on Monday appealed to all to work for restoration of peace and normalcy in the state and to follow the principle
of Mahatma Gandhi by practising a clean life.
The 154th Birth Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi was held at Gandhi Memorial Hall, here on Monday. Governor led others at a wreath laying ceremony at the statue of Mahatma Gandhi during the occasion.

Governor appealed to all for collective efforts to resolve the ongoing strife in Manipur so that our age-old tradition of peaceful co-existence can be maintained and find a solution to the problem through dialogue.
She stressed that the principles of Mahatma Gandhi were filled with the spirit of love, non-violence, kindness, mutual brotherhood and forgiveness.
Therefore, the true tribute to Mahatma Gandhi on his birth anniversary would be to follow and always remember his teachings, she asserted.

Chief Minister said, “Gandhiji was an apostle of non-violence, equality, harmonious co-existence, mutual respect and religious tolerance. Gandhiji's ideals have eternal value and his philosophy of 'Ahimsa' is more relevant in today's world. He is remembered most for his non-violent means of working for social justice, his acceptance of all faiths, and his ability to bring conflicting groups together.”
He added, “Today, we are witnessing a disturbing phase in our state's history. Disruptive forces both from within and from outside, are resorting to the most heinous of violent acts with the intent of disrupting the State's fabric of peace and harmony, unity and diversity. Tribes and communities have been pitted against each other by making use of deceit and dishonest narratives of history and events. These are in complete contrast to the teaching of the Mahatma: Truth and Non-violence.”
“The events of past many months are an awakening for all of us who believe in peace and harmony. The intent and acts of divisive forces must make each of us realise the need for trust and oneness in defeating these forces through dialogue and non-violent means” he added.

The Congress party observed the day at Congress Bhawan organised by Manipur PCC , Gaikhangam, CWC Member , Ak.Mirabai, former Minister and office bearers paid floral tribute to Rashtrapita Mahatma Gandhi .
