Relief camps in Manipur not satisfactory: CPI(M) general secretary to governor Anusuiya

Imphal: CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury who visited different relief camps in Imphal, Moirang and Churachandpur in Manipur informed governor Anusuiya Uikey that they found arrangements, being done by state government and local bodies, in maintaining and running the relief camps not satisfactory.

​A political delegation of CPI(M) led by Sitaram Yechury (Ex-MP Rajya Sabha) and Jitendra Chowdhury, Ex-MP Lok Sabha along with six others called on the governor at Raj Bhavan on Friday evening and apprised her of the present situation of Internally Displaced People (IDPs) staying in different relief camps.

Sitaram said, IDPs are deprived of nutritious food especially children and lactating mothers and even babies are being born in the camps. In such a situation for how long the IDPs can survive with hope, he added.

Only a political solution can bring peace to the ongoing crisis and his party has already raised this issue to the Centre, he said.

The issue of snatching or looting weapons from different police stations have also been raised to the governor by the delegation.

The governor welcoming the delegation said, political parties, cutting across party lines, need to cooperate with the government in bringing an amicable solution to the ongoing conflict. She said, violence will not bring any solution and therefore several appeals have been made to the two communities to shun violence and move forward for talks.

Incidents which claimed many valuable lives are unfortunate and all have to be united to end this conflict, the governor said.

Acknowledging their concerns, she said, she had visited many relief camps in both hills and valley districts and the state administration has been asked to provide all essential requirements including foods, medicines, clothes etc. to the IDPs and efforts will be made further to ensure availability of all requirements of the people.

The governor informed the delegation that she personally met Prime Minister and other central leaders and urged them to find ways to end the conflict at the earliest possible time.

Manipur has been in grim due to present crisis that has been witnessing since May 3, the day Kuki attacked Meitei villages.
