BRS leader Vinod takes part in Amit Shah's all-party meet on Manipur
HYDERABAD: BRS senior leader B. Vinod Kumar told the all-party meeting on the Manipur situation that the Centre must provide rehabilitation to the violence-affected people and seek restoration of internet services immediately.
Speaking at the meeting convened in Delhi by Union home minister Amit Shah, he expressed concern over Prime Minister Narendra Modi maintaining silence and suggested that he make a public statement immediately to restore confidence.
Vinod Kumar faulted the decision of the Centre to stop internet services for 50 days in Manipur. He said students, youth and other services will be adversely affected due to the ban on internet services.
Vinod termed the Manipur High Court's order to the local government to include the Meiti community in the ST list as unconstitutional, as only Parliament could deal with the subject. He said the situation could have been avoided had the Supreme Court intervened and stayed High Court orders.
