Assam Chief Minister will meet his Manipur counterpart N Biren Singh and others today in the backdrop of the ongoing tense situation in the state, sources told ANI news agency.
The Supreme Court on Friday rejected the urgency of a plea against the suspension of internet services in the violence-ravaged state of Manipur since May 3, as the Supreme Court has taken up the case.
“The Supreme Court has taken up the case. Why are you duplicating it? Let it go to the regular court,” said a vacation bench of Justices Aniruddha Bose and Rajesh Bindal.
The internet ban came into effect on May 3 and remains in effect to this day.
Earlier, the Supreme Court expressed concern over the loss of life and property in Manipur during the violence and stressed taking adequate measures to restore normality there.
On March 27, the Supreme Court ordered the state to consider including the Meitei community on the Scheduled Tribes list.
Violence in Manipur between the Hindu Meiteis and the Kuki tribe erupted after a meeting of the All Tribal Students Union of Manipur (ATSUM) on May 3.
Violence has gripped the entire state for a month now and the central government has had to deploy paramilitary forces to bring the situation under control.
