We are deeply concerned about the continuing ethnic violence in Manipur between the Meitei community and the tribal Kuki and Zo communities. We demand an immediate halt to this violence that is causing large scale disruption of lives, livelihoods and properties and unleashing even more terror among people.

Thereby, the Meitei community would have access to land that is currently reserved for tribal communities. Several spates of violence broke...
