Chief Minister Pema Khandu has extended warm greetings to the people of the state particularly the Singpho community on the festive occasion of ‘Shapawng Yawng Manau Poi’.
In his festival message, Khandu said “ours is a distinct state with several tribes and communities residing side by side for ages and maintaining their own unique indigenous culture and traditions. Despite our varied diversity, we as Arunachalees are united and take pride in our indigenous cultural heritage. This cultural mosaic has to be maintained, preserved and propagated at all costs while keeping intact our unity in diversity. I believe the Shapawng Yawng Manau Poi would prove a major catalyst towards achieving this goal”.
He hoped that the festival would further the goal of achieving communal harmony and unity while showcasing the rich and varied traditional culture of the Singphos.
