Shah appeals for peace in Manipur; to visit state on May 29

Shillong, May 25 (Agencies): Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday appealed for peace in Manipur and said he would visit the violence-torn state to take stock of the prevailing situation.

Shah, who was in Guwahati, said the perpetrators of violence would not be spared. He added that he would visit the state for three days and review the situation and that justice would be delivered.


Ministry sources said Shah will visit Manipur from May 29 to June 1. “For six year, we have seen peace in the state. There was no bandh or blockade. And today, one court order led to a flare-up. We will solve this issue through dialogues and peace,” Shah said while attending a function in Guwahati.

This is the Home Minister’s first public statement after ethnic violence broke out in Manipur.

Meanwhile, Shah opened the Guwahati campus of the National Forensic Sciences University that “will open doors to plenty of career opportunities for the students of Northeast India”.

“It will also facilitate world-class forensic investigations in the region, paving the way for speedy justice,” Shah tweeted.

He also distributed appointment letters to the 44,703 youths in Assam. “The BJP-led NDA govt in Assam, today completed approx 86,000 appointments, proving its election promise to give 1 lakh govt jobs in the state,” the Home Minister tweeted.
