Manipur: 21 opposition alliance 'INDIA' MPs meet Governor, displaced people

Imphal: A delegation of 21 MPs, belonging to constituents of the INDIA alliance, met Governor of Manipur Anusuiya Uikey at Raj Bhavan on Sunday and discussed the prevailing situation in the troubled North Eastern state.

The team, led by Congress Lok Sabha leader Adhir Chowdhury, is on a two-day visit to Manipur since Saturday and went to various relief camps in Churachandpur, Bishnupur and Imphal districts where they met the violence-hit people.

Chowdhury, while apprising the Governor of how the people in relief camps have been staying, said people are in pain and sorrow

He said almost all sections of society including women, children and students are affected and it is high time to take concrete steps to end the ongoing conflict.

It is not only a problem of law and order but an ethnic conflict which needs special attention and therefore, an appropriate step to end the conflict and steps to remove hatred among the communities have to be initiated to restore peace and normalcy in the state, the delegates said as they submitted a memorandum to the Governor and requested for effective measures to restore peace and harmony and justice.

In order to bring peace and harmony, rehabilitation and resettlement of the affected persons must be urgently done, they said.

The Governor welcomed the team for their visit to Manipur and appreciated their efforts for the restoration of peace and normalcy.

The Governor informed them that she is fully aware of the problems faced by the people consequent upon her visit to different relief camps in both the hills and valley districts.

Both the Central and State governments are making relentless efforts to contain the situation and bring peace and normalcy at the earliest and security forces are also discharging their responsibilities to save the people.

She said to bridge the mistrust between the two communities, hatred among them has to be removed and therefore all stakeholders should work in this direction peacefully.

The Governor appealed the delegates to extend their cooperation to restore peace and tranquillity through a peaceful dialogue with the representatives of Civil Society Organisations of both the communities to maintain the status quo ante of the age old tradition of peaceful co-existence.
