Amit Shah Reviews Manipur Security Situation, Says MHA Will Talk To Meiteis, Kukis


New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah chaired a high-level meeting in the national capital on Monday at the Ministry of Home Affairs in North Block, Delhi, to review the security situation in Manipur.

During the one-hour meeting, Shah emphasised the strategic deployment of central forces to restore peace and tranquility in Manipur. Shah mentioned in the meeting that the “forces will be increased if required”, and instructed strict adherence to legal measures against those responsible for instigating violence.

The Union Home Minister instructed the Chief Secretary of Manipur to oversee the provision of healthcare and educational facilities for displaced individuals and their rehabilitation. Shah stressed the importance of a coordinated approach to effectively address the ongoing ethnic conflict in the region.

Shah stated that the Ministry of Home Affairs will talk to both the groups, Meiteis and Kukis, so as to bridge the ethnic divide, at the earliest, adding “the Central government has been actively supporting the Manipur government in strengthening the security situation in the state.”

The meeting saw the participation of key officials, including Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla, Intelligence Bureau Chief Tapan Deka, Army Chief General Manoj Pande, Army Chief (Designate) Lt General Upendra Dwivedi, GoC Three Corps HS Sahi, Security Advisor to Manipur Kuldiep Singh, Manipur Chief Secretary Vineet Joshi, Manipur DGP Rajiv Singh, and Assam Rifles DG Pradeep Chandran Nair.

The high-level meeting, took place a day after Manipur Governor Anusuiya Uike visited the Home Minister at his office to provide an update on the situation in the northeastern state. Held at the Ministry of Home Affairs, the meeting aimed to address the escalating violence reported in Manipur.

The northeastern state has been witnessing ethnic violence since May 3 last year following clashes during a rally organised by the All Tribals Students Union (ATSU) to protest against the demand for the inclusion of the Meitei community in the Scheduled Tribe category.

In fresh violence, several houses belonging to both Meitei and Kuki communities were burned by unknown miscreants in Kotlen following the murder of a person earlier this month, the Manipur Police said. Around 600 people from Manipur’s Jiribam area are now taking shelter in Assam’s Cachar district following fresh violence reported in Manipur’s Jiribam area.
