“We are really frustrated to see the irresponsible act of state government. We are so helpless and have no option left to find out solution. Therefore we once again meet with the constitutional head of state, governor today,” said Ibobi who is also the former chief minister of Manipur.
He informed that they had submitted a memorandum to the governor urging her to arrange a meeting of all political parties in Manipur with Prime Minister Narendra Modi to chart out a plan for resolving the present conflict in the best interest of all people of Manipur.
He also said that if Narendra Modi is busy visiting the strife-torn state of Manipur, at least he can convene a meeting in Delhi.
“All the representatives of 10 like-minded political parties would be very grateful if PM invited us for a meeting at Delhi,” he suggested and further said that if the state government is incapable of bringing an amicable solution, they should take help from the central government.

The parties are Indian National Congress, Janata Dal (United), Communist Party of India (Marxist), Communist Party of India, Nationalist Congress Party, Shiva Sena (UBT), All India Forward Block, Aam Aadmi Party, All India Trinamool Congress, Revolutionary Socialist Party.
