CPI Parliamentary Party Leader Shri Binoy Viswam serves notice under Rule 267 to have a discussion on the disturbing developments in Manipur

Communist Party of India Parliamentary Party Leader and National Secretary Shri Binoy Viswam served a Notice under Rule 267 of Rules of Procedure and Conduct of Business in the Rajya Sabha to have a discussion on the disturbing developments in the state of Manipur over the last three months.
Situation in Manipur remains highly volatile with incidents of violence, arson, rioting and killing being reported frequently. It is a matter of grave concern for the entire country that a strategically located state of Manipur is faced with deep crisis which remains unresolved after claiming hundreds of lives and displacing thousands. The union and state governments have failed to arrest violence and strife in Manipur resulting in the complete collapse of normal life in the state.

CPI MP Shri Binoy Viswam had earlier visited the state of Manipur with the delegation of CPI – CPIM MPs. They visited relief camps, interacted with victims and stressed on the need for peace and restoration of Law and order in the state. After visiting the relief camps Shri Binoy Viswam had said
“Manipuri people are forced to live as refugees in their own country.”

The delegation of CPI – CPIM MPs had promised the people of Manipur to raise their voices in Parliament, furthering the promise CPI MP Binoy Viswam served a notice under Rule 267. The notice said “a thorough discussion is needed to comprehend the political crisis, efforts made by the Union and State Government and what needs to be done to restore peace and normalcy in Manipur”. MPs across political parties should consider this alarming situation with urgency and contribute positively to resolve the crisis, peacebuilding, rehabilitation of displaced and ensure generous compensation to the victims of Manipur. MP Binoy Viswam said that the Prime Minister of the country has been busy visiting countries around the globe but has failed to visit the state of Manipur or even utter a word about Manipur. While the Government proudly advertises the Motto of G20 “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” or “One Earth One Family One Future” he has conveniently forgotten the future of thousands of families displaced in Manipur. MP Binoy Viswam calls upon all Members of Parliament across Party lines to discuss the alarming situation in Manipur in order to come up with a solution to restore peace and harmony in Manipur”.
