Speaking during the flagging off ceremony of the car rally, LAD chairman M Asnikumar pointed out that the sports scenario of Manipur is evolving with changing times.

Addition of such a new dimension of aero sports, which will be India's first-ever event in the history of the aero-sports category, is a proof, he added.

Stating that the festival is going to be a huge bonanza for adventure sports lovers of the country, he said it will also give the opportunity to put Manipur as a premier adventure sports destination in the country.
