The Campaign is focused on boosting tourist arrival figures to Manipur during the State biggest tourism festival. It emphasizes on highlighting the unique cultural diversity of the State and its tourist attractions.

Speaking on the occasion the Chief Minister stated that the State Government is making arrangements to organize the events of Sangai Festival at 13 places across the State. Expressing the beauty of the State inhabited by different communities, he welcomed everyone to come and experience the extravaganza of the Sangai Festival which will be organized under the theme ‘Festival of Oneness’.
