Manipur Violence: Despite all the efforts of the Central and State Governments, there is no control on violence in Manipur. After the visit and warnings of Union Home Minister Amit Shah, the violence had stopped in the state for a few days, but now the atmosphere is again tense. Many big incidents have come to the fore in the last few days. The target of the rebels is the government. The question is arising as to why the situation is not normalizing here. Is China behind this?

The miscreants who carried out the violence have vandalized and torched the residences of Union Minister of State for External Affairs RK Ranjan Singh and Manipur's only woman minister Nemcha Kipgen. After this the situation has become even more tense. Coincidentally, when the attack took place at RK Ranjan Singh's house, he was not at home. A crowd of more than one thousand people lit the fire there.

Where are the weapons coming from the rebels?

In view of the situation, there is a ban on internet service in the entire state. Before Thursday, nine people, including a woman, were killed in a clash in the state on Tuesday. The miscreants carried out this attack in Khamenlok area of Khundrakpam assembly constituency in Imphal East. According to the police, heavily armed insurgents attacked the village of Khamenlok. In which 25 people were injured.

After Tuesday and Thursday's attacks, the input given by the police about the miscreants has increased the concern of the security agencies. A large amount of weapons are being seen near the rebel groups of Manipur. The questions are arising that from where are they getting so many weapons? Who is backing them up? Because without backup the violent movement cannot last for so long.

China's move through Myanmar behind the violence?

To understand the reason behind the unbridled violence and arson in Manipur, it is necessary to understand the state border situation. Many have blamed insurgent camps in Myanmar for the attacks and violence. Manipur shares its border with Myanmar. It is being told that violence is being spread in Manipur through Myanmar. Manipuri insurgents spread violence across the border and hide in camps across the Myanmar border.

According to defense sources, in view of the sensitivity of the Myanmar border, the security on the border has been beefed up. Aerial surveillance of the entire area is being done. The Defense Department is also keeping an eye on whether China is executing its trickery through Myanmar?

Security agencies are alert. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and helicopters have been pressed into action for surveillance not only in the hinterland but also along the Indo-Myanmar border. This is all the more important because Manipuri insurgent groups are moving to camps across the Myanmar border. China has been fueling violence in this way.

China has been putting strings on Myanmar

At present, China has good relations with Myanmar. Both the countries share a 2129 kilometer long border. There are deep historical and cultural ties between them. Myanmar understands China's expansionist intention but it is also bound to maintain normal relations. China uses Myanmar's compulsion against India.

Now Myanmar has given permission to China to build a monitoring center in Coco Island in the Bay of Bengal. It directly means from India. China can keep an eye on India's Balasore test range through here. According to the information, China has a huge influence in Myanmar. India is keeping an eye on the whole situation.

Violence even after Amit Shah's visit

Seeing the situation in Manipur, Union Home Minister Amit Shah also visited the state on 29 May. And announced that a peace committee would be formed to resolve all issues between the Kuki and Meitei communities in the state. He had also spoken of strict action against those who spread violence. But the circumstances tell that it could not have any effect.

Why is the violence continuing even after a month and a half?

The Kukis and Nagas constitute 40 per cent of the state's population. They say that the Maiti community is already prosperous, so they should not be included in the ST category. At the same time, the Meitei community living in the valleys are also angry about the whole situation because they do not have the right to settle in the hilly areas or buy land. While tribals can buy land in the valleys.
