Churachandpur, April 28: In response to the mob setting ablaze an event venue in Manipur’s Churachandpur ahead of Chief Minister N Biren Singh’s visit, the government has taken measures to control the situation. The public gatherings in the district have been restricted, and mobile internet services have been suspended.

The mob vandalised and set fire to an open gym that was constructed at PT Sports Complex in New Lamka, which was scheduled to be inaugurated by the Chief Minister.

They also vandalised the public meeting venue at Sadhbhav Mandap where Singh was to address a meeting.

The incident occurred during the shutdown called by the Indigenous Tribe Leaders Forum, which demanded that the state government clear reserved forested areas of farmers and other tribal settlers.

To avoid any unforeseen incidents, prohibitory orders under Section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) were issued in the district. This section prohibits the assembly of more than four people in an area. It is implemented to avoid any law and order disturbance in sensitive areas.

Such incidents are not uncommon in the state. The state has had a history of violence, ethnic tensions, and insurgencies. The government has been trying to bring peace and stability to the region. However, it has not been very successful in doing so.

The government’s measures to control the situation in the Churachandpur district are essential to prevent any further law and order disturbance. The situation in the state of Manipur must be addressed, and efforts should be made to bring peace and stability to the region.
