Expressing concern over the recent spate of violence in the state during protests by student bodies and civil society organizations, Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh Thursday has appealed to all sections of the society to shun violence while raising their demands to the government.

He said that the present government was listening and taking the voice of civil societies and public, seriously in working towards resolving any issue.

Biren said this on the occasion of Kargil Vijay Diwas’ at the Banquet Hall of 1st Manipur Rifles Battalion in Imphal.

“Government tries at its level best to find an amicable solution immediately after an issue comes before the government. It is my government’s commitment to resolve any issue at the earliest possible time,” Singh said.

Even if the issue was beyond the state’s purview, the state government has not delayed in pressing the Centre to solve the problems, he said. 

“So, one shouldn’t harass the public in order to get some demand,” Biren said. 

Admitting that the demand raised by Manipur University community (MUSU, MUTA and MUSA) was genuine, he said that the state government has conveyed their demands to the Centre to take up proper action on the issue so that the academic atmosphere can be restored.

Talking about the present burning issues like state territorial integrity in the wake of recent development in the Framework Agreement signed between the Centre and NSCN(I-M), the chief minister reiterated his government’s stand.

Asserting that only the government would not able to protect the territorial integrity of the state, the chief minister called for unity among different communities to fight any challenges before the state.

On the occasion, Biren also recalled the Manipur born soldiers, who had laid down their lives for the country in the Kargil War.

State deputy chief minister Y Joykumar Singh, minister for CAF&PD Karam Shyam, minister for tribal affairs and hills N Kayasii, minister for education Th Radheshyam, MLAs, chief secretary, DGP and other top civil and police officials attended the function.
