IMPHAL — A team of Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) has submitted a memorandum to three Members of Parliament (MPs) from the state, asking them “to present the burning issue of Manipur” in the ongoing Parliamentary session “so that peace and normalcy can be brought back” to the state.

The MPCC vice president Hareshwar Goshwami-led congress team submitted the memorandum to Inner Manipur MP Dr. RK Ranjan Singh, Outer Manipur MP Dr. Lorho S Pfoze, and Rajya Sabha MP Leishemba Sanajaoba on Saturday, MPCC sources in Imphal said.

While highlighting the outbreak of the violence on May 3 that left around 200 people either killed or missing with many dead bodies still lying in various mortuaries, more than 60,000 people displaced and living in the relief camps and some 6,000 weapons being snatched or looted from police posts and battalions, the party mentioned in the memorandum that there is still no sign of restoration of peace and normalcy in Manipur even after seven long torturous and painful months.

Stressing the immediate need for rehabilitation and restoration of all the displaced people at their respective homes with adequate security and suitable compensation, the MPCC also expressed the need to take up immediate measures for restoration of peace and normalcy in Manipur.

On December 6, the MPCC president K Meghachandra, while speaking to the media, appealed to the three Manipur parliamentarians to speak on the Manipur crisis in the parliament and help bring a solution to the crisis.

Manipur had been witnessing violence since the ethnic conflict erupted on May 3 this year.
