Peace will return in Manipur soon: PM Narendra Modi in Lok Sabha
New Delhi : While replying to the no-confidence motion debate in Lok Sabha, Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi on Thursday broke his silence over the ongoing Manipur crisis. He assured that the peace will soon return to the region; the whole nation is with the people of Manipur.
PM Shri Narendra Modi mentioned that both the state and central governments are doing all possible efforts to ensure stringent punishments for the culprits. As PM made his point, he also slammed the previous Congress government in the state for leaving Manipur in an extremely unstable situation.
PM Modi on Manipur Crisis
"Both the state and central governments are leaving no stone unturned to ensure that the accused receive the most severe punishment possible. I want to provide an assurance to the people that tranquility will be reinstated in Manipur in the near future. To the people of Manipur, including the women and daughters of the region, I want to convey that the entire nation stands in solidarity with you," PM Shri Narendra Modi said while addressing the lower house of the Parliament.
Addressing concerns regarding the Northeast region, PM also mentioned, "Reflecting on the challenges faced in the Northeast, it's important to remember the events of 5 March 1966, when the Congress authorized an Air Force operation against vulnerable citizens in Mizoram. It begs the question: Was it the Air Force of a foreign nation? Were the residents of Mizoram not rightful citizens of our nation? Was their safety not a duty held by the Government of India?"
No Confidence in Congress
Though PM Shri Narendra Modi was replying on No Confidence Motion debate, he launched a scathing attack on the Congress and said that people of the states where Congress is ruling has no confidence in the party. PM cited figures from several states where Congress is weak and said people of these states are saying 'No Congress'.
The citizens of our nation lack faith in the Congress party. Their inability to perceive the truth is a consequence of their arrogance. A notable instance is Tamil Nadu, where their victory in 1962 led to the people consistently rejecting Congress ever since. Similarly, in West Bengal, their win in 1972 resulted in the populace firmly voicing 'No Congress.' The sentiment holds true in states like UP, Bihar, and Gujarat as well, where their triumph in 1985 has been met with resounding 'No Congress' sentiments from the people," he said.
