Governor of Manipur, Najma Heptulla, conveyed her greetings on the auspicious occasion of Nupi Lal (Women’s war).
Governor Najma Heptulla tweeted that the Nupi Lal which took place in 1939-40 is a landmark event in the history of Manipur.
Governor Najma Heptulla further tweeted, “I am proud of Manipuri women as they always play a very important role in Manipuri society at the critical juncture. I am also happy to know that unlike in other contemporary Hindu society, the Manipuri women held a key position in social and economic activities of the State”.
“Till today, the role played by the Manipuri women is praiseworthy, and I am fully confident that the present Manipuri women will also follow the true spirit of the then women in the years to come. I wish the Nupi Lal Day a grand success,”, she added.
Chief Minister N Biren Singh in his Nupi Lal Day message said that he joins the people of Manipur in paying tributes to the Imas (mothers) of Manipur who fought against the exploitative policies of the then colonial rule and came to the forefront for bringing socio-political reforms in the state.
"Nupi Lal continues to be a motivation for the people of the state. It reminds us we have the courage and boldness to stand together and fight against evil," said N. Biren Singh.
