Manipur violence: Amit Shah to ‘establish peace’ in Manipur, set to visit northeast state for three days
New Delhi: Days after fresh incidents of violence in Manipur, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday confirmed that he would travel to Manipur soon and stay in the northeast state for three days.
“I will go myself to Manipur after a few days and will stay there for three days and will talk to the people of Manipur for establishing peace,” Amit Shah said.
Commenting on the situation in Manipur, senior BJP leader and Union Home Minister said;
“There were clashes in Manipur after a court verdict. I would appeal to both groups that they should maintain peace, and justice will be done for everyone.”
On Wednesday, the house of Manipur PWD Minister Konthoujam Govindas in Bishnupur district was vandalised by a group of people claiming government’s incompetence to resolve the issue in the state. Reportedly this was the first time when a minister’s house was attacked in three-weeks ethnic violence between Meitei and Kuki community.
Army and paramilitary forces have been deployed to control the situation in the state.
