Manipur Chief Minister N. Biren Singh to Meet Governor Amidst Calls for Resignation

New Delhi: Manipur Chief Minister N. Biren Singh is set to meet Governor Anusuiya Uikey on Friday to discuss his resignation, following mounting pressure due to recent ethnic violence in the state. The clashes between the tribal Kuki community and the majority Meitei community have tragically resulted in the loss of at least 131 lives.

Singh's attempts to reach out to the Kuki groups have been met with rejection, with accusations levelled against him for orchestrating the violence. The Kuki groups have also refused to participate in a peace committee chaired by the Governor, citing Singh's involvement.

This prospective resignation would mark Singh's second departure from the position of Chief Minister of Manipur. He had previously resigned in 2017 but was later reinstated.
