The Manipur Assembly Speaker, ministers and MLAs, who are presently in New Delhi, have submitted a letter to the Prime Minister's Office on Tuesday, seeking appointment with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
It may be mentioned that a delegation of the state legislators are on a mission to the national capital to meet the Central leaders in an effort to bring a peaceful lasting solution to the prevailing crisis situation in the state.
The legislators had flown to Delhi after members of the Youths of Manipur (YoM) stormed the Chief Minister’s bungalow on September 11.
The large number of youths met CM N Biren Singh in continuation of their movement in which the MLAs were made to take a pledge for protecting Manipur and resign on failing to do so.

Chief minister N Biren Singh along with some ministers and MLAs met a delegation of the youths who insisted on signing pledges not only from the chief minister but from all ruling MLAs including ministers. N Biren Singh convened a meeting of the MLAs where the proposition from Youths of Manipur was minutely discussed and deliberated upon.
Later, 23 MLAs signed a resolution which was handed over to the youths. All members proceeding to Delhi to persuade the central leadership to bring a solution to the current crisis at the earliest was a part of the resolution. (with inputs from DIPR).
