Imphal, June 10: Ten political parties in Manipur, led by Congress, on Friday sought the intervention of PM Narendra Modi to restore peace and normalcy in the State at the earliest.

Former three-time Chief Minister and veteran Congress leader O. Ibobi Singh said that Modi’s silence over the devastating violence in Manipur proves that the Centre is neglecting the state.

He also emphasised that while the visit of Union Home Minister Amit Shah was appreciated, Manipur continues to suffer from unabated unrest and persistent reports of violence.

The ten political parties in its meeting on Friday at Congress Bhawan in Imphal also resolved to urge the state government to convene a special session of the Manipur Assembly for a detailed discussion on the ongoing unrest.

The 10 political parties included: CPI, CPI-M, JD-U, Forward Bloc, RSP, SS-UBT, Trinamool Congress, NCP, a local party besides the Congress.

The Congress leader further expressed that if the central government had intervened on time, the crisis could have been resolved much earlier.
