IMPHAL April 22: Governor of Manipur, Gurbachan Jagat on the eve of Khongjom Day greets the public. A message from the Governor states that Amnipuris displayed their indomitable courage and spirit of patriotism, in fighting against the then mightiest world power ,the British and finally laid down their lives for the sake of their motherland in the Anglo Manipuri War 1891.
Khongjom Day reminds us of the historical fact that the British rule was brought upon us by the disunity and enmity among the Manipuri princes while contemplating for the throne, In celebrating the day, we also need to remind ourselves that the foreign powers tend to intervene in the sovereignty of a country whenever its people are disunited and disorganized.
Further, on the occasion of Khongjom Day, let all of us rejuvenate our pledge to preserve and protect the sovereignity of our country and its dignity, standing united and bold, the message concludes.
