The Centre as well as the Manipur Government are engaged in a continuous process of bringing absolute peace in the state since the day trouble erupted on May 3, Manipur Governor Anusuiya Uikey said today in Imphal.

According to the Manipur Governor, the persistent efforts made by the concerned stakeholders have yielded positive results to some extent, baring some isolated incidents.

Speaking on the sidelines of a government program, Governor Anusuiya Uikey said, “efforts are being made by the Centre and the state government to bring peace in Manipur. Towards achieving that, the Centre is holding persistent deliberations with the people, the CSOs, political parties as well as other stakeholders for putting an end to the current situation. Lots of success could be achieved, only a few isolated incidents are happening.”

The Manipur Governor made the statement as she allayed apprehensions over the fact that the state has gone 60-years back in terms of development, economy as well as other indicators favourable for a developed state.

Governor Uikey observed that the recent turmoil had made an obvious impact on the progress and welfare of the state, especially women, children and youths at the receiving end.

“Definitely, because of the incidents there seems to be a halt in the entire process, (development) as Manipur was progressing on the path of welfare. But what I understand is that as you have said, children, women, youths as well as other people had to face serious situation. On my part I am also putting efforts,” Governor Uikey added.

On December 6, Eastern Command GOC-in-C Lt General RP Kalita had met Governor Anusuiya Uikey at the Raj Bhavan.
