    Thousands of families have been harmed: Rahul

    It is important that the Prime Minister come here: Rahul

    Congress managed to secure both seats from Manipur

The Leader of the Opposition in Lok Sabha Rahul Gandhi paid a visit to the state of Manipur which has been in a state of turmoil ever since clashes between the Meitei and the Kuki communities broke out in 2023. The Indian National Congress (INC) managed to secure both seats from the state in the 2024 Lok Sabha Election. “I visited the camps and heard the people there, heard their pain. I came here to listen to them, to build confidence in them and as somebody who is in the opposition, to try and apply pressure on the government so that it acts. Here, the need of the hour is peace. Violence is hurting everybody. Thousands of families have been harmed, properties have been destroyed, family members have been killed and I have never seen anywhere in India what is going on here. The State is completely split in two and it is a tragedy for everybody involved. I want to tell all the people of Manipur, I come here as your brother, I come here as somebody who wants to help you, who wants to work with you to bring back peace in Manipur,” Rahul Gandhi said in a press conference held in Manipur.

Although Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated in the Rajya Sabha that instances of violence in Manipur have reduced, Rahul Gandhi urged him to pay a visit to the region. This issue was also raised by leaders of the Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) bloc in the Lok Sabha during PM Modi’s speech. “I feel that it is important that the Prime Minister come here, listen to the people of Manipur, try & understand what is going on in Manipur. After all, Manipur is a proud state of the Indian Union…even if there was no tragedy, the Prime Minister should have come to Manipur,” Rahul added.
