Know what Union Minister Irani said

Union Minister Smriti Irani said that the viral video from Manipur is highly condemnable. The incident is inhumane. Have spoken to CM N Biren Singh. He told me that the matter is being investigated. He has assured that the accused will be tried from the dock. At the same time, Superintendent of Police K Meghchandra Singh said that a video dated May 4, 2023 has surfaced, in which unknown miscreants are making two women walk naked. Nongpok Sekmai police station in Thoubal district has registered a case against the accused. The investigation has started. Will try to arrest the accused in the case as soon as possible.

The condition of the relief camps is also critical

Talking to the media, TMC MP Kalyan Banerjee said that people have told us their pain. The relief provided to the relief camps situated in the hill as well as in the valley is not adequate. The camps should get adequate relief. Peace restoration is the main objective of our party. We will raise this issue in Parliament. After the video surfaced, TMC urged PM Modi to break his silence of 78 days and stand with the people of Manipur.

Targeting PM Modi

TMC tweeted that scenes of bloodshed have emerged from Manipur. Here two women were paraded naked. A large group of men sexually assaulted her. Who is stopping the Center from sending fact-finding teams and commissions to Manipur? Why is WCD minister still silent on this matter? Attacking the BJP, the TMC said that the BJP's claim of Nari Shakti is hollow if it cannot ensure justice for the women of Manipur.

Rahul-Priyanka did this tweet

Regarding the viral video, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said that India's views on the situation in Manipur are under attack. India will not remain silent. Rahul Gandhi tweeted that the Prime Minister's silence and inaction pushed Manipur towards anarchy. India's thoughts are being attacked, India will not remain silent. We are with the people of Manipur. We stand with them. Peace is the only way forward. Senior Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has also targeted the BJP by tweeting. He said that the pictures of sexual violence against women are heart-wrenching. We all should condemn the violence in one voice. Prime Minister, why has the central government turned a blind eye to the violent incidents in Manipur? Do such pictures and violent incidents not bother them?

Now understand the whole controversy

Ethnic violence has been raging in Manipur since May 3. More than 150 people have lost their lives in the violence that has been going on for almost two and a half months. Whereas, many people are injured. In fact, the Meitei community is demanding Scheduled Tribe (ST) status, due to which the Kuki and Meitei communities have clashed. The Meitei people account for about 53 percent of Manipur's population and live mostly in the Imphal Valley, while the tribals, including the Nagas and Kukis, constitute 40 percent and live mostly in the hill districts.
