IMPHAL: In a goodwill gesture extended to Myanmar during Covid 19 pandemic lockdown, a team of RSS led by Pranth Pracharak of Manipur Pradesh Mritunjay visited the neighbouring country as a goodwill gesture.
The team reported that the trip was a memorable one. It has been years there has been a cordial rapport between Manipur and Myanmar in all the affairs which was witnessed during King Kyamba reign in 1467-1508, wherein Shan King Khekhomba presented an idol of Visnu as a royal gift to him. During the 18th century, the Manipuri diaspora gained prominence after the conflict era and subsequently, they introduced the national cloth of Myanmar “Achek”.
The Manipuri diaspora both men and women settled in Myanmar almost opted to remain unmarried to preserve the sanctity of Vaishnavism. With the advent of the opening of the Eastern door of India, it is prophesied since time immemorial that this policy will bring the golden era to Manipur.
Earlier, in the middle of the month, after witnessing the COVID-19 situation in Tamu, Sangaing Region of Myanmar (Burma) the neighbouring country of India, under the able guidance and leadership of Pranth Pracharak, Mruthunjaya, seven volunteers of Covid-19 Rescue Team, Seva Bharati, Manipur, namely Dhanachandra Sharma, RK Dinamani Singh, Santhosh Sharma, Raju, Dinesh, Anil and Pushparaj went from Imphal towards Moreh town with plenty of Covid-19 relief materials including Covid-19 medical kits, Covid-19 testing kits, high quality reusable PPE kits and essential medicines.
