New Delhi, Aug 19 (PTI) Terrible state of relief camps, erosion of trust in government and lack of political will are some of the issues flagged by CPI(M) leader Brinda Karat who submitted a memorandum to President Droupadi Murmu on Friday after a three-day visit to Manipur. A delegation of the All India Democratic Women’s Association (AIDWA) visited the strife-torn state from August 9-11 and met those who faced the brunt of the riots.
In the memorandum, AIDWA conveyed the women’s deep sense of insecurity and despair. The group also mentioned that Governor Anusuiya Uikey whom they met has directly interacted with many of the victims and given her recommendations to the relevant authorities.
“However, what we saw and experienced shows that there is no change on the ground and in people’s hearts. We could understand the utter grimness of the situation in Manipur only after visiting the state and interacting with the people there, especially women,” the memorandum said.
