Amid the unrest in violence-Manipur, nine MLAs from the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its alliance, including two ministers, met Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday in New Delhi and raised the demand for a separate administration for Chin-Kuki-Mizo-Zou community in Manipur.
The development comes after 10 state MLAs released a statement, demanding a separate administration in the aftermath of the recent communal violence. The communal clashes broke out in 11 districts of Manipur after a "peaceful" solidarity rally against the ST demand by the Meetei (Meitei) community that was organised by the All Tribal Students' Union of Manipur on May 3.
MLA Vungjagin Valte, who was injured in the violence, could not join the nine MLAs during the meeting with Amit Shah, as he was undergoing medical treatment at a hospital.
The outcome of the meeting has not been made available to the media yet.
Another five-member ministerial team of the state government led by CM N Biren and Manipur BJP president A Sarda Devi also met Amit Shah on Sunday and informed about the present scenario and situation of Manipur. The CM informed mediapersons about the Centre's assurance to safeguard the territorial integrity of Manipur at any cost.
