The Manipur People’s Party (MPP) on Saturday urged the state governor to call a special session of the assembly for the restoration of peace and normalcy in the state.
A release issued by MPP media general secretary Paonam Khaba stated that the ongoing unrest in the state is comparable to a civil war and accused the ‘double engine’ government of Manipur of planting the ‘conflict atmosphere’ from before. It urged the state governor to call a special session of assembly for the restoration of peace and normalcy in the state. The assembly’s failure to bring a solution to the crisis may result in constitutional crisis, it claimed.
It alleged that though the Union government had interfered with the declaration of Article 355, the improvement of the crisis is little to none.
“MPP condemns the recent press release issued by one of the minister and 10 MLAs of the state which indicates their desire to break the integrity of Manipur into pieces. It is quite unfortunate that the state BJP have been a mute spectator even when the 10 MLAs of BJP are openly conducting such anti-national acts threatening the integrity of the state,” it stated.
The MPP strongly condemned the attack on innocent lives which threatened peace and harmony in Manipur, it added.
