To bring back peace govt is taking all measures CM Biren Singh

Imphal: Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh maintained that his government is taking all possible steps to restore peace and harmony in the state, which has been rocked by communal violence since the beginning of this month.

“The government is trying to ensure the safety of all communities and live together like before,” Singh said during a press briefing at the Chief Minister’s Secretariat on Monday.
On Monday’s fresh violence in Imphal, the Chief Minister said, three persons have been arrested in New Lambulane with two licensed guns.
The Chief Minister said that three villagers were injured in the firing incident in Moidangpok village on Sunday. He said that after a night-long search operation by the security personnel, a person has been arrested with a shotgun.

Apart from these small stray incidents at various places, the Chief Minister said that with the timely intervention of the security forces and the cooperation of the people, Manipur is gradually getting back to normalcy.

Appreciating the cooperation of the security forces in restoring peace and order in Manipur, Singh said, “The government is making all efforts to protect the people.”
The CM said that the Manipur government is also in the process of requesting the central government to send 20 additional companies of paramilitary security forces to ensure peace.
Biren Singh appealed to the public to refrain from mob violence, adding that action will be initiated against all those who instigate violent activities, irrespective of community, as per the law. He also urged the public to inform the concerned authorities if they see any wrongdoing, so that immediate action can be taken to control it.
The Chief Minister also appealed to the people to have faith in the government and sought everyone’s cooperation in bringing the state back to normal. Appealing to the public to refrain from spreading unverified and baseless information, he appealed not to engage in any activity that would hurt the sentiments of any community or incite inter-communal violence.

“Let us forget and forgive the things that have already happened and prioritize the restoration of peace,” he said.
