The decision was taken by Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge after a delegation of party workers met him on Tuesday evening.

“A delegation of @INCManipur leaders apprised me of the tremendous difficulties which the people of Manipur had to go through during these troubling times. A team of observers are being sent shortly to ascertain the ground realities,” Kharge said on Twitter. The Congress chief said the situation in Manipur remains tense and was deeply distressing.

“The Union Government should do everything possible to see normalcy returns to the state. Every community has a stake in ensuring peace. Let us take everyone in confidence,” Kharge also said.

The Congress has criticised the role of central and state governments in controlling the situation in Manipur after violence hit the state and has demanded the imposition of President’s rule there.

Meanwhile . Supreme Court asks the government of Manipur to file a fresh status report on the violence between Meitei and Kuki communities in the state. Supreme Court posts the matter for hearing to the first week of July.
