IMPHAL, Sep 18 : A four member delegate of Shiv Sena, State unit has left Imphal for New Delhi today to urge the Central leaders to discuss the crisis in Manipur during the ongoing special session of the Parliament.

The points highlighted in the memorandum are to either withdraw the Suspension of Operation (SoO) with Kuki militants or make the cadres conform to the ground rules of the agreement, implement MLR & LR Act in the entire State, update and implement National Register of Citizens, set up Highway Protection Force and to restore normalcy in Manipur.
Reportedly, copies of the memorandum were submitted to Governor Anusuiya Uikey and Chief Minister N Biren Singh before the Shiv Sena team left for New Delhi.
Speaking to the media before taking the flight, M Tombi said that they have sought an appointment with Amit Shah through the National president and MPs of the party.
Saying that they will apprise the Central leaders about the root cause of the violence and urge them to restore normalcy in Manipur at the earliest, M Tombi claimed that the Centre can end the violence in a couple of days if they want to.
How long is the BJP Government in Manipur and at the Centre planning to keep the State in a restive situation, he asked.
Claiming that the violence in Manipur was orchestrated by Kuki narco-terrorists and supported by Kuki militants, M Tombi said that they will urge the Union Home Minister to replace Assam Rifles with other Central forces during the meeting as the conduct of the paramilitary force has become questionable.
