“Unable to resolve the crisis shows that the government has failed on all fronts and there is no civil administration in the state”, he said, adding that the crisis has devastated all denizens of Manipur.

The failure of the government has put the people in a dilemma as they were confused about who is governing and administering the state, he also said.

The CWC member alleged that the Centre as well as the state, seemed not taking up any concrete steps to end the crisis. “If the government is kind enough, then the ongoing violence can be ended within a week as the armed forces of the country are known for their efficiency in the world”.
