Chief Minister Pema Khandu has extended warm greetings to the people of Singpho community in particular and citizens of the state in general on the auspicious occasion of Shapawng Yawng Manau Poi festival.
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 this Shapawng Yawng Manau Poi would prove a major catalyst towards achieving this goal.
I wish everybody on this occasion and foresee a grand celebration of the festival of dance in honour of the great forefather of the Singphos –Shapawng Yawng” the message added further.
