Imphal: The prolonged conflict between various ethnic groups in Manipur shows no signs of subsiding, as the city witnessed yet another shocking incident when a mob set fire to the residence of Union Minister Rajkumar Ranjan Singh on Friday. This marks the second attack on Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Rajkumar Ranjan Singh, whose home was reduced to ashes.
Speaking to the media, Singh said, “I am currently in Kerala for official work. Thankfully, nobody got injured last night at my Imphal home. The miscreants came with petrol bombs, and damage has been done to the ground floor and first floor of my home.”
Appealing for peace in the northeastern state, he said, “It is very sad to see what is happening in my home state. I will still continue to appeal for peace. Those indulging in this kind of violence are absolutely inhuman.”
