New Delhi : MPs belonging to the INDIA alliance made a powerful statement by wearing black clothes in parliament to condemn the atrocities and brutality faced by the people of Manipur. Raghav Chadha emphasised that the gesture was a symbolic protest to show solidarity with the people of Manipur during this distressing time. He further added that the aim is to convey to the government that silence on the suffering of Manipur’s people is unacceptable, and they must take decisive action.
AAP Senior Leader and Rajya Sabha MP Raghav Chadha hit out at the BJP for its failure in curbing the ongoing violence in Manipur. He said that the state, which is an integral part of India, is facing turmoil while the Modi government is consistently failing to fulfil its constitutional obligations to restore peace.
Raghav Chadha stressed that it is the central government’s responsibility to intervene and protect Manipur as mandated by the Indian constitution, specifically referring to articles 355 and 356. He called for the immediate dissolution of the state government and the removal of Chief Minister N. Biren Singh.
