This decision of the Manipur government is meant to promote the Manipuri script, the Manipur CM stated.
He added: “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 up to the 105th Amendment this time, is therefore, very significant, as well as special, being in the Meetei Mayek script,” the Manipur CM said.
