New Delhi, June 26 (UNI): Stepping up his attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Manipur situation, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on Monday said if the PM is really concerned about the Northeastern state, then he should sack Chief Minister N Biren Singh.
The Congress has been blaming the Biren Singh-led government for the current crisis in Manipur.
“Reports indicate that finally the Home Minister has spoken to PM Modi on Manipur. For the last 55 days, Modi ji did not say a word on Manipur. Every Indian is waiting for him to speak. If Modi ji is really concerned about Manipur, then the first thing he should do is to sack his CM,” Kharge wrote in a tweet.
Suggesting various measures to bring normalcy in the violence-hit state, the Congress chief said, “Confiscate weapons stolen from extremist organizations and anti-social elements. Start talks with
all the parties and find a common political path. End the blockade with the help of security forces. Ensure the availability of essential commodities by opening and keeping the National Highways safe.”
