Women folks have been taking care of the people day and night at various vulnerable places of Manipur. People of Manipur are suffering due to the present turmoil and need to bring a collective effort to bring back normalcy, said William.
The violence continues because of the continuous firing of Kukis towards the Meitei communities, he alleged.
