Expressing his deep concern and anguish over the distressing incident in Manipur where Kuki women have been subjected to heinous acts of violence by the mob, Telangana Minister and BRS party working president KT Rama Rao (KTR) ) on Thursday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah to intervene and “Save Manipur”.
In a statement, KTR, while drawing attention to the alarming situation, said there is a need for immediate action to address the issue.
Highlighting the urgency and seriousness of the situation in Manipur, he said the incident involving the assault and humiliation of Kuki women is an alarming reminder that such acts of violence must not be tolerated in any civilised society.
KTR called upon the Prime Minister and the Home Minister, to prioritise this grave matter and take immediate action to restore peace and order in Manipur. The silence of the Union Government on this issue has further intensified the distress of the affected community and citizens at large, he said.
As responsible citizens of India, it is our collective responsibility to stand against any form of violence and safeguard the dignity and safety of all individuals, regardless of their region or community, the Minister added.
Minister KT Rama Rao’s plea to SaveManipur serves as an urgent call for action, emphasising the need for the highest authorities to intervene promptly and ensure justice and security for the people of Manipur.
