Motha Chief Pradyot Manikya offers assistance to Tripura students stranded in Manipur amid clashes

In the midst of unrest in Manipur, Tripura's royal scion and political leader, Pradyot Manikya, has offered to help students from Tripura who wish to return home due to the ongoing clashes. In a statement released today, the Chief of the Tipra Motha party expressed his solidarity with the affected students and vowed to stand by them in these difficult times.

The clashes were triggered by the All Tribal Student Union Manipur's (ATSUM) solidarity march, which was met with opposition from other tribal groups. The protests escalated after the Manipur High Court's decision to consider the Meiteis' demand for inclusion in the Scheduled Tribes list, a move that was opposed by other tribals.

The situation quickly deteriorated, leading to widespread rioting across Manipur. Over 9,000 people have been displaced from their villages, and the government has been forced to deploy 55 columns of the Army and Assam Rifles to contain the violence.

In an effort to contain the situation, the Manipur government has issued a 'shoot at sight' order in extreme cases. The move has been criticized by human rights organizations, who have called for a peaceful resolution to the conflict.

As the situation remains tense, Pradyot Manikya's offer to help Tripura students return home is a welcome gesture of support for those affected by the unrest. It remains to be seen how the situation will unfold, but it is clear that the people of Manipur are in need of urgent assistance and support.
