New Delhi, 5th Dec. The Congress party targeted the Modi government on Tuesday for the violence in Manipur, stating that the situation in the state is still far from being normal.
Jairam Ramesh, the general secretary of the Congress, also raised concerns about Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s silence on the matter. Despite the Home minister’s claims of peace being restored in the northeastern state, the actual situation on the ground tells a different story.
“It has been 7 months now. The situation in Manipur continues to be far from normal. Just yesterday came news of a fresh round of violence which took the lives of thirteen people. Earlier, a public sector bank had been looted and some Rs. 18 crore carried off,” he said in a post on X.
“The Home Minister claims peace has returned but ground realities are to the contrary. And of course, the Prime Minister carries on with his inexplicable silence on Manipur, along with his refusal to meet with Manipuri leaders or visit the state,” Ramesh said.
The Congress has been raising the issue of Manipur violence and will seek a discussion on the situation there in Parliament.
