Mentioning that many Ambassadors and foreign diplomats had given confirmation for visiting the State to witness the festival, he appealed to the people of Manipur to extend welcoming attitude and hospitality to visiting tourists. This will make a good impression for the state, he added.

Biren further appealed not to dump garbage at the roadside and put them in proper places for collection by concerned authorities. He also urged the public to refrain from bandh and blockades which will give hardship to all people and create a bad image of the state.
