Imphal, August 02: An 18-member delegation of the North East Students Organisation (NESO), an apex body of eight students’ associations of seven northeastern states, arrived in Imphal on Tuesday to promote peace and ethnic harmony in the strife torn Manipur.

The NESO delegation would visit various districts and meet the cross section of people including Meitei and Kuki, inmates and displaced people and civil society organisations to assess the prevailing situation and facilitate efforts to establish lasting peace in the violence-affected Manipur.

The NESO organised candlelight vigils in all state capitals of the northeast on June 28 in solidarity with the people of Manipur.

NESO Chairman Samuel B. Jyrwa said that they would facilitate efforts to establish lasting peace in the violence-affected state.


“Since the violence broke out in Manipur NESO has maintained constant touch with leaders from different communities in Manipur. The visit stands as a continued effort by NESO to foster peace and harmony, further strengthening the longstanding relationship between different communities in the region,” Jyrwa said.

The delegation would meet the Governor Anusuiya Uikey, Chief Minister N. Biren Singh and other leaders.

The All Assam Students Union (AASU) chief adviser Samujjal Bhattacharya said that two NESO teams are already present in Manipur since the violence started on May 3.
