Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said India has a history of celebrating festivals and fairs, which enrich the country's cultural heritage and also support the local economy.
During a virtual address on the occasion of Manipur's Sangai Festival, Modi said the northeastern state is endowed with natural beauty and rich cultural heritage.
"It is like a necklace in which different gems are put together, with the state bearing the reflection of a mini India," he said.
"Festivals like Sangai boost the local economy, and attract investors as well as industries. I am confident that it will become a gateway to the development of the region," the PM added.
The Sangai Festival is being celebrated after a gap of two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
