In her speech as chief guest, Nemcha Kipgen stressed on the vital roles and immense contribution of women community in the society and lauded KWU for their contribution and efforts for the welfare and uplifting the lives of all Kuki women in particular and the women of the state as a whole.

“When women could exert their roles and sincerely took part in society, family, decision making, etc. then only success follows,” she said while adding that the roles and responsibilities of women in the society are no less than those of men.

Speaking on the occasion, president, KWU Manipur, Nenglam Tungnung said “Way back in 1993, with the sudden and unprecedented atrocities perpetrated by the NSCN-IM on the innocent and unsuspecting Kukis that left thousands of orphans and widows, the need for such a Union was acutely felt to cater to the needs of such innocent victims.”

“The KWO Manipur came into existence in the year 1993 with (Late) Kimkhoneng and Lamkhovah Kipgen as its first president and secretary respectively,” she continued while adding that since its inception the Union has been working tirelessly with the Government on one hand and the general public on the other for the welfare of society.

Rangitabali Waikhom, addressing the crowd in the local dialect was the main attraction of the day while Thangkhosei Haokip praised the DC of Kangpokpi and lauded her for promoting Manipur integrity through her speech in the local dialect.
