Amit Shah visit to calm down rebels in Manipur violence

Amit Shah’s itinerary for the 4-day visit to the troubled North-Eastern state of Manipur included meeting the delegations of the Hill Tribal Council apart from the Kuki Students Organization, Kuki Chiefs Association, Tamil Sangam, GorkhaSamaj and Manipuri Muslim council in Moreh on Wednesday. However, the situation still continues to be unstable and tension still brewing, leading to the Home Minister asking the state administration to take prompt action to restore normalcy in the State. His directions for stern action by the law enforcement agency come in the backdrop of widespread violence across the State where dozens of houses were set on fire along with the bloodiest gun battles ensuing between the rebel groups and security forces, in recent times.

Amit Shah issues a statement to the media after assessing the situation

In the meeting that was held between the Home Minister and the various groups, Amit Shah said “Our resolve remains focused on leading Manipur back to the track of peace and harmony once again and their return to their homes at the earliest,”

As per the latest news and media sources, that the Home Minister also held a security review meeting with the top officials, asking them to take stern action to contain the violence. The State Chief Minister, Biren Singh also echoed the same words apart from asking the authorities to crackdown on those found to be possessing illegal arms and ammunition.

Even though the situation was somewhat under control in the last couple of weeks, fresh violence ensued since last Sunday. The State Government had failed to control the violence even to the least bit, which led the tribal groups to seek the resignation of the current CM and impose the President’s rule in the State.
