Imphal: The Manipur Assembly on Tuesday resolved to work for the oneness and harmony of all the people of Manipur, irrespective of caste, community, region, religion, or language.
Held after a gap of six months in the aftermath of clashes between two ethnic groups, the one-day session also resolved that “as peace is the priority of the state, this house will strive to resolve all the differences among the people, till complete peace returns to the entire state, through dialogue and constitutional means.”
The House also resolved to appeal to each and every individual not to pay heed to divisionary elements, maintain peace, and shun violence in the interest of our state and nation.
The House reaffirmed “its dedication to stay together in these trying times by healing wounds, fostering unity, and creating a brighter future for all residents.”
With great sorrow and a heavy heart, this House condoles the tragic loss of many lives in the recent violence in the State of Manipur. In times like these, words seem insufficient to express the depth of the pain and grief that have befallen families, communities, and the entire state. This house also extends its thoughts and condolences to their families and loved ones. May their souls find eternal peace.”
Some MLAs, mostly belonging to the Kuki tribe, were absent, but most of them took leave. Congress MLAs led by Okram Ibobi demanded a five-day session to discuss the Manipur situation. Speaker Th Satyabrata Singh adjourned the session sine die as there was commotion in the Assembly.
