Chief minister N. Biren Singh has vowed to protect agricultural land and wetland in order to ensure sustainable development for the people and also to maintain ecological balance.

It was organised by department of revenue at Manipur State Film Development Society (MSFDS) auditorium, Palace Compound today.
