New Delhi, July 19: A Congress leader in the Lok Sabha, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhary, said that Manipur is burning but the central government is silent on the issue.

Talking to the media after the all-party meeting on Wednesday, Chowdhary said that the Congress wants a discussion on the Manipur violence in the House. That is why we want to bring an adjournment motion tomorrow.

Chowdhary said that Manipur has been burning for the last two and a half months, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi has not spoken a word. Now is the time for him to speak on this issue in Parliament.

He said that the Congress wants the monsoon session of Parliament to discuss the Manipur violence as well as the Balasore incident, inflation, unemployment, the Indo-China situation, and the imbalance in Indo-China trade.

It is notable that the monsoon session of Parliament starts tomorrow (Thursday). In this session, the opposition parties, including the Congress, want to corner the central government on issues like price rises, poverty, Manipur violence, and others.

Before the commencement of the Parliament session tomorrow, the opposition parties will go to participate in the proceedings after holding a meeting under the leadership of the Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, Mallikarjun Kharge.
