Minority tribe students who successfully passed the HSLC, HSSLC, and CBSE examination, 2022 were felicitated in a programme organised by Indigenous Minority Organisation Manipur (IMOM) at Manipur Dramatic Union (MDU), Yaiskul Police Lane, Keishamthong on Thursday.
The youngest legislator of the state and Saikul assembly constituency MLA Kimneo Haokip Hangshing attended the event as chief guest while additional secretary, Education (S) N Bandana Devi and president IMOM Rengenson Thanga attended as Guest of Honour and Functional President respectively.
Women’s secretary, MBC reverend Apila, former president UCM Sunil Karam and president IMSCOM Momsokam Bapui also attended as special invitees.
General secretary, IMOM Silas Anth delivered the keynote address while reverend H Apila invoked a blessing prayer for the successful students after the presentation of certificates with a cash reward.
Kimneo congratulated all the minority tribe students who had successfully passed the toughest academic competition and extolled them for their hard work and dedication.
“In a world of ever-increasing divisiveness, it is perhaps more important than ever that we promote and establish an accessible learning environment in which students of all races, ethnicities, and backgrounds feel valued, loved, and heard. We may educate ourselves regarding the resources available for minority students in our area and the ways that we can contribute positively to their lives within the community. We can profoundly help our minority students if we only realise the power of our influence and take the time to make a difference,” she said.
N Bandana Devi and reverend H Apila also spoke on the occasion apart from other special invitees.
