Manipur government has planned to name the districts of the State after fruits special to them.

Chief minister N Biren Singh on Friday said this while opening the consultative meeting on food processing-cum-technology exhibition at Lamphelpat in Imphal.

The chief minister said the government is considering to name the districts after fruits in a bid to grant recognition to them for producing their own varieties.

Tamenglong district produces orange, ‘kachai’ lemons are abundantly available in Ukhrul district, Noney and Pherzwal districts produce banana and ginger respectively.
