Imphal: Opposition INDIA bloc on Sunday asserted that if the Manipur ethnic conflict, which is lingering for around three months, is not resolved soon, it may create security problems for the country. A delegation of 21 MPs of the opposition INDIA bloc called on Manipur Governor Anusuiya Uikey at Raj Bhavan and submitted a memorandum on their observations after visiting the northeastern state.
Addressing reporters outside Raj Bhavan after the meeting, Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said, “The governor heard our observations and agreed to those. She expressed pain over the violence and narrated the people’s sufferings.” “The governor suggested that an all-party delegation should visit Manipur to talk to both Meitei and Kuki people to remove mistrust among the communities. We also agree to that suggestion,” Chowdhury said.
