Meanwhile, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi during the debate in Parliament yesterday asked the Prime Minister why he has not visited Manipur yet. “The Prime Minister has not gone to Manipur because he doesn’t consider it a part of India. You (BJP) have divided Manipur, ” said Mr Gandhi.
In response to the Opposition, Union Home Minister Amit Shah showed a report card of works done by central government in combating Covid and drugs menace. He said the motion run by the Opposition is merely to “mislead people”.
He even talked about the efforts made by the central government to bring back normalcy in Manipur.

Earlier, the centre had said that it will take up the Manipur issue on August 11, the last day of the Monsoon session which was not accepted by the Opposition.
