Nadda thanked the health workers saying they ensured that Covid-19 vaccines reached faraway and topographically difficult terrain in the state.

"Under the Stand-Up India scheme, 5,477 entrepreneurs have been sanctioned Rs 114 crore, and 60,000 people are being employed in Manipur," he said.

He slammed the Congress leaders for allegedly boycotting the Constitution Day programme, and claimed that it reflects they never respected anyone but the Nehru-Gandhi family.
