India rejects European debate and resolution on Manipur

New Delhi, Jul 14 (Prensa Latina) India today described as unacceptable and a reflection of a colonial mentality the debate of the European Parliament on the events in the state of Manipur and the subsequent so-called emergency declaration issued there.

In a message to the media, the official spokesman of the Ministry of External Affairs, Arindam Bagchi, considered such action an interference in the internal affairs of the Asian country.

He assured that Indian authorities at all levels, including the judiciary, are aware of the situation in that territory and are taking measures to maintain peace, harmony and law and order.

Bagchi emphasized that it would be beneficial for the European Parliament to use its time more productively on its internal issues.

At a recent meeting, India’s Home Minister Amit Shah confirmed the government’s commitment to restoring peace in the state of Manipur, which has experienced tribally motivated violence since last May.

Shah affirmed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been monitoring the situation from day one and is guiding, he said, with full sensitivity to find a solution to the problem.

The spokesman specified that the government’s priority is that no more lives are lost and who has also sought the cooperation of all political parties to help calm the situation as well as restore peace and trust among the communities as soon as possible.

He also informed that the situation in Manipur is slowly returning to normality since last week and so far the authorities have recovered more than 1,800 weapons.

The Minister also pointed out that 36 thousand security forces personnel, 40 Indian Police Service officers and 20 medical teams are deployed in the state while ensuring supply of essential items like medicines.
