Parliament: Oppn MPs move notices seeking discussion on Manipur violence

NEW DELHI: Several Opposition Members of parliament on Thursday, July 27, moved notices in both the Houses -  Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha seeking a discussion on the Manipur violence.

In the Lower House, Congress MP Manickam Tagore has submitted an adjournment motion notice to address the issue, while in the Upper House, Congress MP Imran Pratapgarhi, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD)'s Manoj Kumar Jha, and AAP's Raghav Chadha have filed a suspension of business notice.

This morning, AAP MP Sanjay Singh expressed strong criticism against Prime Minister Narendra Modi regarding the situation in the Northeastern state. Singh condemned the Prime Minister's insensitive remark about returning to power in 2024 while the nation is grappling with crises. The Manipur situation was at the forefront of his concerns.

Singh emphasized that the Opposition INDIA has been continuously demanding the Prime Minister's presence in the House to provide a comprehensive statement on Manipur. He shed light on the atrocities faced by women and the plight of people taking refuge in relief camps within the state. The Modi government must be held accountable, and questions must be raised to restore peace in Manipur, irrespective of the cost.

The current unrest in Manipur stems from ethnic clashes that began on May 3, leading to countless fatalities and forcing thousands to seek safety in relief camps. Chief Minister N. Biren Singh has faced criticism from the Congress and other Opposition parties, who hold him responsible for the Northeastern state's ongoing crisis and demand his dismissal.
