Manipur’s RLD demands President’s rule
On Friday, Rastriya Lok Dal (RLD) called for the imposition of President’s rule in Manipur, which has been grappling with ongoing strife and violence. The RLD National Spokesman, Anil Dubey, stated that they have submitted a memorandum to President Draupadi Murmu through district officials, demanding immediate dissolution of the Manipur government and the imposition of President’s rule.
The party’s memorandum also called for a fair and impartial inquiry into the ethnic violence that has been occurring in the state. To ensure a transparent investigation, the RLD demanded the constitution of a committee led by a sitting Supreme Court judge.
In addition, the RLD urged the President to intervene and address the atrocities faced by women, tribals, Dalits, and the poor in Manipur. They also requested compensation to be provided to the families of those who lost their lives in the violence that began in May.
Anil Dubey, the RLD Spokesman, accused both the Central and Manipur governments of being silent observers to the violence, which has caused tension across the entire north-eastern region. He condemned the incidents of violence, particularly those involving women, as unfortunate and barbaric, describing them as a shame for humanity.
