Manipur govt to publish Indian constitution in Meetei Mayek script

Imphal: Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh on November 18 announced a historic initiative on microblogging site ‘X’ – the publication of the Constitution of India in Meetei Mayek script.
This landmark decision is aimed not only at celebrating and promoting the Manipuri script but also at providing direct access to the principles enshrined in the Indian Constitution to speakers of the Manipuri language.
Chief Minister N Biren Singh expressed his happiness that the Department of Law and Legislative Affairs, Government of Manipur is ready to publish a Dilated Edition (English-Manipuri) of the Constitution of India, containing the Manipuri text. Also includes a Mayek script.
The Constitution, as the supreme law of the land, defines the fundamental rights, guiding principles and fundamental duties of citizens, while also prescribing the political structure, procedures, powers and functions of government institutions.
Notably, it holds the distinction of being the longest written constitution in the world.

Despite 73 years since the Constitution came into effect, many of its tenets have remained beyond the reach of the common man due to its non-availability in local languages. The publication, which includes amendments up to the 105th Amendment, is a significant and special undertaking, particularly in the Meetei Mayek script.

Chief Minister N Biren Singh believes that this edition will become an invaluable asset for the entire state, marking an essential milestone in the history of Manipur.

The Chief Minister conveyed his best wishes for the grand success of the publication stating its importance in making the principles of the Constitution more accessible to the people of Manipur.
