5 Key Decisions From Amit Shah’s Meeting With Manipur Cabinet To Be Implemented Across State To Restore Peace

Five significant decisions that would be implemented immediately throughout the state as part of the peace process were made as a result of the late last night meeting between the Manipur cabinet and Union Home Minister Amit Shah, sources said. The judgements are anticipated to assist in bringing the state back to normal after curfews and the suspension of the internet since May 3. Sources said that at a meeting with Kuki tribal leaders, the minister mentioned a CBI investigation into the violence.

At the cabinet meeting, it was decided to take the necessary steps to improve law and order, speed up relief efforts, give families of those killed in the ethnic clashes compensation of 10 lakh and a job to one family member, and reopen BSNL telephone lines to put an end to rumours.

According to insiders, Mr. Shah has ordered officials to deal sternly with anything that disturbs the state’s peace.

Mr. Shah had several engagements after arriving in Imphal late yesterday evening. He met with the Governor, the security services, and members of the administration in addition to Chief Minister N Biren Singh’s cabinet.

He presided over an all-party conference this evening in Imphal and urged political figures to contribute to the restoration of normalcy and intercommunal harmony in the region. He claimed that the Centre is making every effort to promote peace.

“Reviewed the security situation in Manipur in a meeting with senior officials of the Manipur Police, CAPFs and the Indian Army in Imphal. Peace and prosperity of Manipur is our top priority, and instructed them to strictly deal with any activities disturbing the peace,” he later tweeted.

The geographical integrity of Manipur will not be compromised at any cost, Mr. Shah stated in response to the demand for a separate state for the tribals made by 10 tribal MLAs, including seven from the governing BJP. He also made a plea to civil society leaders to play a proactive role in restoring peace to the state.

According to sources, the Home Minister asked leaders to play active roles in reducing violence during a meeting in the predominantly tribal city of Churachandpur and promised that a political solution will be started as soon as possible.

Mr. Shah assured them that the Central Bureau of Investigation would look into the violence and that 20 tonnes of rice would soon be distributed to the state’s tribal populations, according to reports.

According to sources, Mr. Shah took note of the perspectives of tribal leaders, intellectuals, and well-known tribal citizens during the hour-long closed-door meetings in Churachandpur. The state has been experiencing unrest for more than a month.

The ethnic conflicts, which began about a month ago with a tribal solidarity march arranged in opposition to the Meitei community’s petition for Scheduled Tribe designation, have claimed more than 80 lives. Another round of fights over the eviction of Kuki villagers from reserve forest area came before it.
