Uncertainty and fear are looming large in Manipur with the Centre and the state government not taking any strong steps to deal with the very serious situation there, Congress’ leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury alleged after a delegation of Opposition alliance returned from the violence-hit state following a two-day visit.

Opposition I.N.D.I.A. Bloc 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 itself.

Earlier in the day, the delegation of 21 M.P.s of the Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance also called on Manipur Governor Anusuiya Uikey at Raj Bhavan in Imphal and submitted a memorandum on their observations during the visit.

There is fear and uncertainty in the minds of the people of Manipur. The situation in Manipur is very serious, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, the leader of Congress in Lok Sabha, told reporters at Delhi’s airport after returning from the North-eastern state.

Uncertainty is looming large in Manipur. Thousands of people have been dislodged from their homes. They do not know when they will return to their homes. Farming has come to a halt, he further underlined.

I do not know how the division between the Kukis and Meiteis will be bridged. No strong steps are taken by the government, be it the central government or the state government, Adhir Ranjan added.

Notably, Manipur-issue has rocked Parliament’s Monsoon Session with the Opposition alliance pressing for a statement from the Prime Minister before a debate.

While the Opposition has now given notice for a no-confidence motion in Lok Sabha, the government has defended its handling of the Manipur-situation, stressing that it has been more proactive than the governments of the past when ethnic violence erupted in the state.

The Opposition-delegation, however, said that the government machinery has completely failed to control the Manipur ethnic conflict and slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s silence, accusing him of showing brazen indifference to the ongoing situation in the North-eastern state.

“Saara Manipur jal raha hai aur P.M. bansuri baja rahe hain (When Manipur is burning our P.M. is fiddling,” Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury stated in a play on the old saying ‘Nero fiddles while Rome burns’.

T.M.C. leader Sushmita Dev said I think there is a complete loss of faith in the Manipur C.M. (N Biren Singh). Common people and masses are no longer supporting the Manipur C.M.

In the memorandum submitted to Manipur Governor Uikey, the Opposition M.P.s who signed the document demanded urgent rehabilitation and resettlement of the affected people to bring peace and harmony to the state.
