OSD (Home), Government of Manipur, Rehanuddin Choudhury, in a release, clarified that the speculation of military reinforcement into the state has no basis, and asserted that it should be ignored as misinformation.

The fact is that the security personnel requisitioned outside Manipur for the conduct of the General Elections to the 18th Lok Sabha are returning to their original bases in Manipur, it maintained.

It appealed to all civil society organizations, media, both print and electronic, and individuals not to amplify such wrong information that may inflame public sentiments and cause untoward incidents, paranoia and a difficult atmosphere for law enforcement agencies to operate smoothly and effectively.

It assured that the state government is taking all necessary measures to control the current imbroglio and restore peace in the state and appealed to all concerned to cooperate with the state government in its earnest efforts to bring normalcy and peace.
