Must read

Imphal, June 22: Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh on Friday assured that peace would return to his state in two or three months because of the priority given to resolving the 14-month-long violence by the new NDA government at the Centre.

Talking to reporters, N Biren Singh said, “Manipur has been slowly returning to normalcy with businesses opening up” adding that violence takes places everywhere but it has reduced in the state. “The state has been going through a crisis for 14 months but the actual violence happened for half of this period,” he said.

He, however, admitted there have been incidents of violence in some pockets of Manipur owing to the lack of security personnel, many of whom had left for election duty.

“The situation will be better now. We hope to arrive at a solution to the crisis within two-three months. An action plan is being worked on following a high-security meeting chaired by Home Minister Amit Shah a few days ago,” he said.

He also reiterated that influx from Myanmar and the drug menace from outside the region were responsible for the unrest in Manipur.

More than 225 people have been killed and about 62,000 displaced in the State since the ethnic violence between the Meitei and the Kuki-Zo communities broke out on May 3, 2023.
