Replying to a calling attention motion moved by BJP’s Bijoya Chakravorty in the Lok Sabha on the economic blockade enforced by Naga groups in Manipur, Chidambaram said the government will not spare any effort to ensure adequate supply of essential commodities.
On the situation in Manipur, he said violence this year was the lowest in a decade, which is an “achievement” of the UPA government.
Leader of Opposition Sushma Swaraj asked the government to specify what it intended to do and not what it had done . She also contended that neither the Home Minister nor his deputy had visited Manipur during the 67 days of blockade. Chidambaram said Home Secretary G.K. Pillai had toured the state for two days and Centre’s interlocutor also met the CM.
