Conveying his best wishes for the grand success of the Meetei Mayek (script) publication, the chief minister further said, “despite 73 years of the coming into effect of the Constitution of India, many of its tenets have remained outside the sphere of knowledge for the common man, largely because of its non-availability in the local language. The publication along with amendments upto the 105th Amendment this time, is therefore, very significant, as well as special, being in the Meetei Mayek script. The document in this edition will definitely become an invaluable asset for the entire State. Its publication will be an important landmark in the history of the State of Manipur.”
