Centre Ready for Manipur Violence Discussion in Parliament Amid Opposition Criticism: Reports

New Delhi: The Centre has expressed its willingness to discuss the violence in Manipur during the upcoming monsoon session of Parliament. The Opposition has accused the government of avoiding this critical subject, which has seen over 80 fatalities over the course of two months.

Ahead of the monsoon session, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi assured that the government is open to discussing all matters in parliament, including the situation in Manipur.

The Congress party has firmly stated that discussions on issues like price rise and Manipur are “non-negotiable.” They have been demanding a response from Prime Minister Narendra Modi ever since ethnic violence erupted in Manipur on May 3.

The Congress has criticized the government’s lack of response to public concerns and the Prime Minister’s absence from Parliament. They urge the government to adopt a more accommodating approach for the smooth functioning of the legislative body.

Last week, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi criticized the Prime Minister while visiting France, highlighting the ongoing issues in Manipur and the European Parliament’s discussion on India’s internal matters.

The European Parliament’s adoption of a resolution on the human rights situation in India, specifically mentioning the clashes in Manipur, was met with the Indian government’s assertion that Manipur is an internal matter. The government deemed the European Parliament’s action as reflecting a “colonial mindset” and deemed it unacceptable.
