MEELAL opposes renaming of "Meetei Mayek" to "Manipuri Mayek" as proposed by Chief Minister Nongthombam Biren during 31st Manipur Language Day observance

Meetei Erol Eyek Loinasillol Apunba Lup (MEELAL) opposes the renaming of "Meetei Mayek" as "Manipuri Mayek" as proposed by Chief Minister Nongthombam Biren during Manipur Language Day observance on August 20.

Speaking to media at MEELAL office today, MEELAL Secretary General (Incharge) Naorem Nongmailembi Leima said, English, which is an international language, is written in the Roman script and no one has tried to rename it to the "International Script". She maintained that even the Hindi language is written in the "Devnagri script'. Likewise, the ancient and indigenous "Meetei Mayek" should not be renamed.

Nongmailembi added that the state name of Manipur itself is not an authentic language and there are demands from different sections to change the state's name. She appealed to stop any efforts to rename "Meetei Mayek" to "Manipuri Mayek" or any other names.
