The Parliamentary Secretary Hydro Power Phosum Khimhun addressing the crowd on the occasion appreciated the community for preserving and promoting culture. He also asked to carry the culture and traditions of the tribe.

Festival should not discriminate people from other communities, tribes and people residing at the district from other state. It should bring brotherhood and communal harmony and let other too to know about us, he added.

MLA from Miao Kamlung Mossang,  said that there are numerous numbers of festivals in our state and all those are meant for the healthy growth of agriculture and human prosperity. So just celebrating the festival, eating and drinking does not make it complete, rather it should be informative to the younger generation.
