The Indian Army has urged for public support to restore peace, expressing concern over women activists in Manipur blocking routes and interfering with security operations, hindering timely responses.

It said in a tweet, "Women activists in Manipur are deliberately blocking routes and interfering in operations of Security Forces. Such unwarranted interference is detrimental to the timely response by Security Forces during critical situations to save lives and property. Indian Army appeals to all sections of the population to support our endeavours in restoring peace", tweets Indian Army

The army also released a 2-minute 12-second video alleging that women activists assisted rioters in escaping, disrupted operations day and night, obstructed logistics movement, and dug up the entry to an Assam Rifles camp causing delays.

A video clip depicted a blockade by women in Itham village, Imphal East. It included alleged footage from June 23 in Uragpat and Yaiganpokpi, showing shots being fired and claimed that women were accompanying "armed rioters."

 

The tweet came two days after a mob of around 1,500 people led by women in Imphal East refused to let the security forces take 12 men from the Meitei separatist group Kanglei Yawol Kanna Lup (KYKL). The standoff was resolved only when the men were handed over to the mob and allowed to go.

Meanwhile, Manipur Governor Anusuiya Uikey on Monday called on President Droupadi Murmu at Rastrapati Bhavan in New Delhi and apprised her about the prevailing situation in the violence-hit state.

The Manipur Governor briefed the President about various incidents which have taken place in the northeastern state and held detailed discussions to improve the situation and bring back normalcy and peace in the state, the Raj Bhavan said in a statement here.

The Governor also apprised the President about her visits to various relief camps in Imphal, Churachandpur and Bishnupur districts, and her interaction with the violence-affected people.

She also informed the President about the steps taken up by the Centre and the State government for providing relief materials to the displaced people who are taking shelter in relief camps in different districts, it said.
