Rahul Gandhi Manipur Visit: Rahul Gandhi will be on a two-day tour of violence-hit Manipur from today. During this, Congress leaders will visit relief camps and meet people displaced by ethnic conflict. During the visit, Rahul Gandhi will also interact with representatives of civil society in Imphal and Churachandpur.
AICC general secretary KC Venugopal said Congress leader Rahul Gandhi would visit violence-hit Manipur on June 29 and 30. He tweeted that Manipur has been burning for almost two months and is in dire need of a healing touch so that the society can move from conflict to peace. This is a human tragedy and it is our responsibility to be a force of love, not hate.
Former CM Ibobi Singh made this appeal
Meanwhile, former Manipur CM and Congress leader Okram Ibobi Singh appealed to the people of Manipur to maintain peace and cooperate during Rahul Gandhi’s two-day visit to Manipur. He said that we appeal to the people of Manipur to please maintain peace and cooperate during the two-day visit of Rahul Gandhi.
Let us tell you that the Congress is making scathing attacks on the Center and the Manipur government regarding the way of dealing with the violence. The party has already demanded the removal of Chief Minister N Biren Singh. At the same time, the opposition parties have raised questions on the ‘silence’ of PM Narendra Modi on this matter.
