PM Modi, during his address in the Rajya Sabha last week, reaffirmed that the central government is making efforts to normalize the situation in Manipur.

Incidents of violence are continuously reducing in Manipur," PM Modi said. He further stated that the central and state governments are establishing interactions with all stakeholders to restore peace.

"Today, schools, colleges, offices, and other institutions are open in the state. The central and state governments are talking to all stakeholders to restore peace," the Prime Minister added.
