Das said that the entire India is worried about what is happening in Manipur and are protesting against it including the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Dhananjaya Y. Chandrachud who said that if the Manipur government does not take appropriate steps immediately to stop what is going on there then the Apex Court will have to take suo moto case.

She also demanded the removal of N Biren Singh from the post of Chief Minister of Manipur besides investigation into the incidents of atrocities against women ins the state, exemplary punishment of the perpetrators, and compensation for the victims.

Similar protests were also organised by several other women’s organisations in Tripura against the ongoing violence in Manipur, especially against women.

Manipur is on the boil since May 3 after an ethenic class broke out between two communities.
Over 160 people have lost their lives, and over 70,000 people have been displaced by the violence during the past two months.
