Imphal, July 1:

A fact-finding team from the National Federation of Indian Women (NFIW) to the ongoing crises in Manipur today said that the May 3 violence in Churachandpur was a ‘state-sponsored violence or riot’. Chief Minister N. Biren Singh should take moral and political responsibility for all that is happening and should have resigned from the post of Chief Minister, the NFIW general secretary told the media persons.
Speaking to reporters at Manipur Press Club here in Imphal, Annie Raja, General Secretary of the NFIW, said that they have conducted three and half days fact-finding in the state of Manipur by visiting both Meitei-dominated areas and the Kuki-dominated areas.
“After meeting the affected parties of both the community we came to the conclusion that the May 3 violence or riot is a ‘State-sponsored violence or riot’”, Annie Raja told reporters.
Giving reason for terming it as a state-sponsored violence, the General Secretary of NFIW said that ahead of the May 3 violence the government of Manipur had demolished many houses and 3 churches alleging them as illegal occupations in the month of March. “In a democracy, the government should either pay compensations or make alternative arrangements if their houses have to be evicted”, Annie Raja said.
The fact-finding team from the NFIW comprises of 3 members. The other members are Deeksha Duivedi, Independent Advocate and Nisha Siddhu, National Secretary, NFIW.
“The Chief Minister being elected as the people’s representatives, has a responsibility to protect the people’s life and livelihood but he failed to deliver his duty”, Annie said adding that after 3rd May incident, the Chief Minister has not made any announcement for thorough enquiry or immediate intervention to control the situation.
