Amit Shah’s Balm For Violence-hit Manipur

Imphal: Union Home Minister Amit Shah visited the violence-hit state of Manipur and said that the center is committed to bringing in peace in the state. As he met the CSOs of Meitei and Kuki communities, he announced a compensation of Rs. 10 lakhs to be provided to the kin of those killed in the violence.

In a series of tweets, Amit Shah gave a glimpse of his visit to the state.

Shah visited the state for the first time since violence broke out on May 3 to join the state cabinet meeting that decided that the center and state shall jointly announce compensation of Rs. 10 lakh each to the next of the kin of those died in the violence. The amount will equally be shared by the union and state government. A committee to probe into the incidents headed by a retired judge of the high court will be formed.

Earlier on May 31, an eight-member AICC delegation led by president Mallikarjun Kharge met President Droupadi Murmu and demanded that the trust between communities should be restored through reconciliation and dialogue and a high-level inquiry commission should be constituted headed by a serving or a retire Supreme Court judge.
