Konkham Lamjingnganba
A 14-year-old boy from insurgency-hit Manipur has been selected to attend the 70th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) session to be held in September this year.
Konkham Lamjingnganba is the lone representative from the entire northeastern region along with nine others from the rest of the country to speak at UNGA.
The other children are from Bihar, Delhi, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Telengana, West Bengal and Uttarakhand. Lamjingnganba is associated with Big Sisters’ League, a registered non-government organisation based in Manipur capital Imphal.
The organization works for prevention of sexual abuse and rehabilitation of the victims.
Son of visually impaired Gangarani who lost her husband in a firing incident a few years ago, Lamjingnganba would speak on the aftermath of violence. (Source:Indiatimes)
