Shah visited Manipur last month
Home Minister Amit Shah has called an all-party meeting on June 24 to discuss the situation in violence-hit Manipur. A Home Ministry spokesperson tweeted that Union Home Minister Amit Shah has called an all-party meeting on June 24 at 3 pm in New Delhi to discuss the situation in Manipur.
Shah had visited the violence-hit state last month. He had held several rounds of meetings with representatives of both the Meitei and Kuki communities to end the violence. However, there was no significant improvement in the law and order situation in the state.
Violence continues since May 3, more than 100 people have died so far
Violence broke out for the first time in the northeastern state on May 3 after a ‘tribal solidarity march’ was organized in the hill districts to protest against the Meitei community’s demand for Scheduled Tribe (ST) status. Since then, more than 100 people have lost their lives and thousands have been displaced.
