Debjit Mukherjee: Violence in Manipur again. After the arrest of five armed youths, fresh unrest spread there. Metei women’s organization Meira Paibi has called for a 48-hour strike across the state to demand the release of the captives. As a result, Imphal is suffering since Tuesday morning.
Shops and markets are locked everywhere. The number of traffic on the road is also less. For the past five months, public life in Manipur has been threatened by Metei-Kuki violence. Common people are suffering a lot.
