IMPHAL, Jan 20: The Governor of Manipur, Gurbachan Jagat has greeted the people of the state on the auspicious occasion of Statehood Day, 2011.
The message from the Governor said, ‘No doubt, Manipur has made progress on various fronts since its attainment of statehood on January 21, 1972. But much more has still to be done to accelerate the development of Manipur. Violence arising out of insurgency and ethnic misunderstanding among different communities, besides being a blemish on unity and brotherhood among the various groups inhabiting this beautiful land, have been hampering the progress of development. The speed of development can increase only when there ios mutual understanding and peace’.
