Published On: August 18, 2023 - Various tribal ministers and MLAs, including seven from the ruling BJP, have opted to boycott the forthcoming Manipur Assembly session beginning on August 21 citing security reasons. The upcoming session, convened in response to appeals from different sectors, including the Opposition Congress, is expected to address the May 3 ethnic violence. This incident has resulted in the deaths of over 160 individuals, injuries to over 600, and substantial destruction of properties. This decision raises security trust issues and misses an opportunity for MLAs to set an attendance example. Responding to Rahul’s criticisms, Union Minister Anurag Thakur hits back at the leader and Congress party. Retorting to Rahul’s comment on 'Bharat Mata being killed' during Parliament's No Confidence Motion, Anurag Thakur said that only those aligned with the 'Tukde-Tukde' ideology would consider dividing 'Bharat Mata'.
