Manipur Governor Anusuiya Uikey on Wednesday stated that the Union Home Minister, Amit Shah, has assured her of undertaking a serious intervention into Manipur issue after the Parliament session.

She relayed Amit Shah’s assurance while meeting with the INDIA Bloc representatives who called on her to address the escalating crisis at the Raj Bhavan in Imphal West.  

“We will be witnessing some form of intervention within the next 10 days in order to resolve the Manipur issue,” said K Meghachandra, Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee president.

He was speaking to the media after INDIA Bloc representatives called on the governor.  The primary focus of the discussion was the escalating crisis and conflict situation in the state, with particular emphasis on recent distressing incidents in Jiribam district.

The delegation was led by prominent leaders including K Meghachandra of the Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee, representatives of Janata Dal (United), and Kh Gyaneswar Singh of the All India Forward Bloc. 

They expressed deep concern over the prolonged violence that has gripped Manipur since May 3, 2023. The latest wave of unrest, which erupted on June 6-7, 2024, resulted in the displacement of approximately 1,000 residents and the burning of around 70 houses in Lamtai Khunou and neighboring areas of Jiribam district.

"The governor also informed that she drew attention of the different ministers at the Centre to look into Manipur issues,” Meghachandra informed.

He also said that during the meeting with the governor, they presented a series of urgent proposals to restore peace and stability in the state. They also emphasised the necessity of ensuring uninterrupted traffic flow on National Highway No.37 and NH-2 by providing adequate security escorts for vehicles transporting essential goods.


After meeting with the Chief Minister N Biren Singh, Lok Sabha MP Akoijam Bimol informed that the government is expecting the new government at the centre to take steps to restore normalcy.

Bimol refrained from commenting when queried about the exclusion of the chief minister at the recent meeting held at the Centre. 

The delegation underscored the critical need for collaborative efforts between the Union and state governments to address the root causes of the conflict and to ensure the safety and wellbeing of Manipur’s residents.
