IMPHAL, Nov 14: Governor Anusuiya Uikey and Chief Minister N Biren Singh have wished the people on the occasion of Ningol Chakkouba which falls on November 15.
"My heartiest greetings to the people of Manipur, especially our beloved sisters on the auspicious occasion of Ningol Chak-kouba Festival, 2023," said Governor Anusuiya Uikey wishing the people in her message.
She said, Ningol Chakkouba rejuvenates family ties and strengthens the bonds of love and affection between brothers and sisters, mothers and daughters and fathers and daughters, helping in promotion of unity and integrity in the society.
"It is a very significant occasion on which the married women come to their parental houses along with their children and enjoy sumptuous feats and receive Dakshina of gifts as a token of love and affection.
"Let us hope that the festival will be celebrated in its true spirit with the involvement of different communities in the State to bring peace, prosperity and peaceful coexistence amongst all," she said.
Chief Minister N Biren Singh wished the people of the State, especially women on the auspicious occasion.

"It is now time for us to restore old ties and strengthen bonds. Ningol Chakkouba celebrates the unbreakable bond of love between brothers and sisters... Let Ningol Chakkouba motivate us to strive for togetherness. On this auspicious occasion, let us also reaffirm to rekindle the flame of unity and oneness amongst the different communities and to live as one," said Chief minister N Biren Singh.
