Imphal: A delegation of the newly formed Peace Committee of the United Naga Council (UNC) in Manipur called on the Governor of Manipur Anusuiya Uikey at Raj Bhavan in Imphal today.
The Naga civil body recently constituted the Peace Committee considering the gravity of the prevailing situation “looming at large and void of sanity” in the state of Manipur, it had said.
According to DIPR, the delegation thanked the Governor for her initiative directing the authorities to take appropriate steps to contain violence and appealing people not to indulge in any violent activities and to restore peace and normalcy in the wake of recent violence broke out in Manipur between two communities.
The Peace Committee also showed their interest to work for restoring peace and normalcy and to support the government in bringing back normalcy thereby maintaining brotherhood among the communities in the State, DIPR informed.
Governor Anusuiya Uikey also appealed the delegation to negotiate with the people of the two communities [the Kuki-Chin-Mizo or Zo ethnic tribes and the Meitei/Meetei community] for peace so that people can avoid violence, and pave way for peace and tranquility in the State.
The Manipur Governor Wednesday instructed Manipur Chief Secretary, Vineet Joshi and relevant officials to form State Level Peaceful Committee to restore peace and harmony in Manipur while visiting relief camps at Khuman Lampak, Imphal as she interacted with stranded people, victims of the ethnic violence evacuated from Churachandpur and Moreh.
