State will not remain as mute spectator: Biren
Pothashang News Service: Imphal, September 5, 2018: Manipur chief minister N. Biren Singh today said the state government would never remain as a mute spectator when anybody indulges in anti-social activities or takes law into their own hands.
Urging all concerned not to resort to any activity which may incite communal tension, the chief minister said the culprits involved in the Nungba incident would be booked as per the law of the land.
Suspected NCSN (I-M) cadres at Nungba Bazar allegedly assaulted a team of 37 members who went to participate in a function at Silchar, Assam.
Biren said necessary search operations had already begun in the area to nab the culprits.
In connection with the abduction of some people of Zeliangrong community as well, one person had already been nabbed, he added.
The chief minister was addressing at the Teachers’ Day celebration held at Manipur State Film Development Society.
Regarding Manipur varsity issue, Biren said people need not worry about the recent development. The matter would be resolved in consultation with the central government soon, he added.
As the varsity is a central government institute, the state government has limited powers in its affairs. However, best possible efforts are being put in to resolve the crisis, he added.
