An all-party meeting has been called by Union Home Minister Amit Shah, on Saturday for the discussion of the prevailing situation in Manipur. Nearly 120 people lost their lives and over 3,000 have been injured ever since the ethnic violence broke out in the state on May 3.
Leaders from different political parties like the BJP, Congress, Trinamool Congress, Left parties and others, have taken part in the meeting.
Violent clashes broke out in Manipur after a ‘Tribal Solidarity March’ was organised by the All Tribal Students Union Manipur (ATSUM) in all districts opposing the recent Manipur High Court order, which had asked the Manipur State government to send a recommendation to the Centre regarding the demand to include the Meitei community in the Scheduled Tribes (STs) list.
Amit Shah visited the state for four days last month and interacted with the people of the state for restoring peace in the state.
Opposition parties have criticised the Centre over its handling of the situation in the northeastern state as violence is continuing unabated for nearly 50 days.
