Amid huge protests around the country over Manipur violence, Home Minister Amit Shah said he is ready for a debate on Manipur violence and said he is surprised that why the opposition is not ready for it.
There were multiple requests in the Lok Sabha during the post-lunch session from opposition leaders and ruling members to discuss about Manipur violence. Amit Shah said that he is ready for discussion and requested opposition to allow as such an important issue should not be ignored. He said the people of the nation should know the truth about what happened in Manipur.
जो लोग इस समय सदन में नारे लगा रहे हैं, इन्हें न सहकार में दिलचस्पी है और न ही सहकारिता में।— BJP (@BJP4India) July 25, 2023
मैंने आज दोनों सदन के विपक्ष के नेताओं को पत्र लिखा है कि कितनी भी लंबी चर्चा के लिए मैं तैयार हूं।
सरकार को कोई डर नहीं है, मणिपुर पर जिसको भी चर्चा करनी है, वो चर्चा कर सकता है।
On the flip side, opposition party leaders in the house protested in demand for a discussion on Manipur violence in the Lok Sabha. Lok Sabha speaker Om Birla has also requested the opposition members to stop the protests and allow the discussion.
There was a backlash on the government after Narendra Modi gave a painful speech in Parliament as it is the duty of the Home Minister to address the violence rather than the prime minister. Both the house, Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha has seen disruptions over the violence since the monsoon session started. Manipur Violence has shamed 140 crore Indians, and the civilization of India was questioned after a woman was paraded naked on the roads as said by Prime Minister in parliament.
