She said that women of the state are very hard-working, playing a key role in the upliftment of the socio-economy of the state. While keeping their family and society as their top priority, women of the state usually forget to think of their own well-being, she said.

She continued that for the welfare of the society, every woman should keep their health strong. For this, there is a need to maintain a balanced diet to prevent one from any kind of deficiency diseases, Chougsin Koireng said, adding that each and every woman should understand how to maintain a balanced diet and its significance.

The programme was organised by Manipur State Commission for Women (MSCW) under the sponsorship of National Commission for Women (NCW).
