Supreme indictment

After the SC remark on Manipur , the BJP must replace CM .

The editorial talks about SC observation in Manipur violence cases . The observation that the FIRs filed have been lethargic and arrests ” far and few between ” . That has led complete breakdown of law and order in Manipur is quite serious . And editorial wants Manipur CM to be replaced after such grave lack of accountability .

About SC observation :

SC had taken the cognisance of law and order in Manipur when video of the girl being paraded naked had surfaced in social media .

SC has pulled state govt for ” lethargic ” investigations .  Referring to the arrests in 6500 FIRs filed only ” far and few between ” , the court has ordered more information on police investigation , the court has ordered personal presence of Manipur DGP on next hearing on 7 th August .The court earlier had also called to form its own investigation team after more incidences similar to 4 may Thoubal surfaced .

Even involvement of police can be seen in many cases .

About Present Manipur situation:

After courts observation , it is clear how pathetic law and order situation is presently in Manipur . In many cases police personnel have been found involved like police giving victims to mob and similar . Such police personnel must be brought to the clutches of law and strong action should be taken . Overall CM has accountability in all these and he should resign , and BJP should force the resignation .
