Both the houses of the Parliament have suspended their session to mark the respect for late sitting MP Hardwar Dubey who passed away in June. Earlier Rajya Sabha adjourned its session till noon but later due to differences of views on timing of the discussion over Manipur violence, Upper House adjourned its session till 2 pm. Meanwhile, Lok Sabha has suspended its session till 2 p.m.
As per the sources Centre has also asked the social media platforms to take down the video that has been widely circulating on various platforms.
Manipur has been witnessing ethnic unrest for the past two months. It started on May 3 following the protest by Naga and Kuki communities against the order of the High Court that has given the nod to the government for the inclusion of the Meitei community into Scheduled Tribes. The Scheduled Tribes were only subjected to buying land in hilly areas. The Meitei community sought the ST status to buy land in hilly areas. Their population has increased throughout time so they felt the requirement of the land.
