Fortunately the Andaman and Nicobar government allocated land at Goodwill Estate to the committee on July 27, 2019, he informed.

In order to develop the allocated land into a Manipur historical site independently, acquiring of patta became essential, he said, adding that the resolution was taken in the interest of all the people of Manipur to preserve its historical site.

The convention also formed a seven-member team headed by S Tondang as chief convenor to lead the movement for demand of the patta.

The renaming of Mt Harriet to Mt Manipur by the Central government as a tribute to the unsung heroes of Manipur is not related with the steps taken up by the committee to preserve the historical site of Manipur at the island, the secretary clarified.
