Imphal: Why chief minister N. Biren Singh, governor Anusuiya Uikey and other state leaders have to participate in the swearing-in ceremony of Narendra Modi for his third term Prime Minister of India in Delhi while his home Manipur is on boil?

The question was raised by convenor of Imagi Meira (a women organisation), Thokchom Sujata while talking to reporters, here on Sunday.

Biren should return home immediately to tackle the Jiribam issue in 15 days, Sujata said.

“There is no need to attend the ceremony. Prime Minister Modi has been remaining silent. He had no time to meet the chief minister to discuss the issue of Manipur conflict,” she said.

The Meitei-Kuki conflict erupted on May 3 last year, the day Kuki people supported by militants launched attack to Meitei villages.

The violence in Manipur’s Jiribam district has been reignited after a man was found beheaded in Jiribam on Thursday.

“While Manipur is burning and many innocent villagers in Jiribam are under Kuki militants’ attack, no leaders of Manipur are here in Imphal.” Instead of monitoring the issue all the state leaders of Manipur including the chief minister and governor Anusuiya Uikey are all out of station to participate swearing-in ceremony of Narendra Modi for his third term Prime Minister of India, Sujata said.

Many houses of both the communities were turned into ashes.

Over 200 villagers (Meitei) of Jiribam district have been evacuated at a sports complex near Jiribam police station, a source said.
