New Delhi [India], December 6 (ANI): Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi on Tuesday gave an Adjournment Motion Notice in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday and demanded a discussion on the ethnic violence in Manipur amid claims from the state and central leadership that Manipur is inching towards peace and normalcy.
“There is an urgent need to review the current situation and discuss the roadmap for bringing back peace and normalcy in the region,” Gogoi said in his notice.
The Congress MP stated that a firing incident was reported in Manipur’s Tengnoupal on Monday, after which the Assam Rifles initiated an operation in the area, following which, 13 bodies were recovered in Tengnoupal district.
Gogoi said that as per the official source, the deceased individuals in the Leithu area did not seem to be residents, suggesting that they may have come from elsewhere and engaged in a firefight with another group.
“The ethnic violence in the state had already claimed at least 175 lives since May 2023,” the Congress MP said.
Recently, in a conversation with ANI, Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh, said that “peace talk” is taking place in Manipur and different communities are interacting with one another under the leadership of Union Home Minister Amit Shah.
“In the last 2-3 months except for a small incident, no major incident has taken place. Normalcy has almost been restored and it is restoring very fast.
