Imphal, June 10:

The Chief Minister of Manipur N. Biren Singh, addressing the recent ambush incident involving his advance convoy team, has pledged decisive action in response to the attack. He stated, “As a CM, I had to attend the swearing-in ceremony of the PM as it is my responsibility.”
Despite being away, he closely monitored the developments in Manipur. Speaking about the Jiribam issue, he said, “I know there is an issue in Manipur, so I was monitoring the situation. I spoke via video conference with the people of Jiribam, and they seemed pleased. While other CMs stayed, I had to return promptly. I spoke with the people of Jiribam and assured them that I would make necessary arrangements. So, according to my convenience, I informed them that I would come there.”
Upon learning of the ambush on his advance convoy and the injury sustained by the driver, the CM expressed disbelief, noting that the attack amounted to a direct assault on the state’s leadership. He emphasized that previous efforts for dialogue had been rebuffed, indicating a need for decisive action to uphold the rule of law.
“Our advance convoy team was ambushed, which I found hard to believe initially. Now, the driver has been shot and injured. Earlier, we did not retaliate much; we sought dialogue. But now they have attacked. They seem to believe that there is no state machinery. We are going to do what is necessary. This is a direct attack on the CM of Manipur. Now, we must enforce the rule of law. Previously, we were trying to find a middle path, but now the state must take decisive action,” CM Biren stated.
