In a release issued by state Home department last year in July stated that Manipur government has resumed its campaign for biometric capture of all illegal immigrants in the state on July 20, 2023.

It was also stated that the campaign will continue in all districts until biometric data of all illegal Myanmar immigrants in the state are successfully captured.

For the first phase a total of 77 illegal immigrants were deportation to Myanmar while one Indian national was also brought back from Myanmar during a handing over ceremony conducted on May 2.

Earlier, Union Home minister Amit Shah also stated that to control influx of illegal immigrants, drug trafficking the pending Indo-Myanmar border fencing work of entire north eastern states will be resumed.

It may be mentioned that Manipur has a 390 km long border with Myanmar, out of the total border only 10 km have been fenced so far.

Last year in connection with the ongoing clash between Meitei and Kuki communities it was reported in media that there is a suspicion of involvement of armed β€˜Lungi clad’ and even in some media video clips of some lungi clads holding sophisticated weapons were shown.

On the parliamentary floor, Amit Shah had informed that the crisis of Manipur is due to external aggression.
