Additionally Zuringla said, “On this day, let us celebrate the rich tapestry of our culture and the diversity that makes India truly unique. As we honour the heroes who fought for our freedom, let us also remember the responsibility that comes with our democratic rights. Democracy is not just a system of governance, it is a way of life. It requires active participation, informed citizens and commitment by everyone to the well-being of all. Each of us plays a vital role in shaping the destiny of our nation. And it is our duty to actively participate and contribute positively to growth and development. According to Forbes India as of January 2024, India ranks 12th on the list of the most powerful countries in the world. The ranking is based on economy, political influence, international alliances, military strength and so on. And to that, I would like to add that we acknowledge our achievements and contributions to science, medicine, art, education, technology, music, sports, entertainment and human capital. Manipur, our homestead, has contributed likewise. We are proud of our educators,poets, writers, artists, sports persons, social workers, farmers and community leaders.”

Every department has its given roles and responsibilities. And I would like to acknowledge that because of your department, the government can function effectively. Your contribution is critical to the delivery of our services” stated Kengoo Zuringla.
