The fifth session of the 12th Manipur Legislative Assembly begins today with an address by the Governor of Manipur. Of the 60-member house, including the Speaker, only 50 are reported present in the session today.
Governor Anusuiya Uikey, in her address, said that her Government has been working tirelessly under challenging circumstances to address various complex issues related to the present law and order situation following the violence that started on May 3, 2023.
The Governor mentioned the evacuation efforts of stranded individuals on both sides of the conflict initiated within the first few days, conducted with a sense of urgency. Manipur State Transport Services reportedly facilitated the transportation of over 4,000 students and stranded civilians to safer locations during the volatile situation in May 2023.
She also mentioned the flag marches and area domination exercises conducted by security forces, as well as the imposition and relaxation of curfew to restore peace, and the appointment of the Security Advisor, new Chief Secretary, and DGP.

Additionally, the Governor mentioned the deployment of State Security Forces, 198 companies of Central Armed Police Force, and 140 Columns of the Army in the state for the sanitization and maintenance of law and order situation in the State.
“The State and Central forces are deployed jointly in the periphery of sensitive villages by way of static and mobile patrolling. Joint teams of civil police and Central Armed Police Force, along with Army and Assam Rifles columns, are deployed in coordination at all ‘Hot Spots’. Pickets are established at important locations to prevent clashes between the two communities. District Level Coordination Committees are also in place, chaired by the Deputy Commissioners,” the Governor said, adding that 219 persons lost their lives due to the violence. “My Government has the deepest sympathies with the families who lost their dear ones.”
She announced that Ex-Gratia of Rs.10 Lakhs is being disbursed to the affected families, after due verification.
The Governor also mentioned the various development works being undertaken by the state government during the crisis time.
The sitting then continued with an obituary reference for the departed members of the house.
