Unity stressed on AMUCO’s silver jubileeIMPHAL | Feb 12 : Amid the 42-hour bandh imposed by KCP in the state, All Manipur United Clubs Organisation (AMUCO) today celebrated its 25th foundation day at Manipur State Film Development Society, Palace Compound under the theme “Unity, peace and development” and was attended by many prominent personalities of the state.
Speakers at the function today emphasised the need for a united Manipur and do away the hill-valley gap which had clouded the state for the past decades.
Former minister and president of Senior Citizen for Society, Manipur, R.V. Mingthing appreciated the chief minister’s slogan “Go to the Hills” and said the unity among the hills and the valley will come only when both are able to dine together. Meiteis of the valley should not disseminate unity only in the valley but should literally go to the hills and spread unity and so should the hill people, he pointed out.
