Dire situation in violence hit Manipur as lack of  medicines supply, essential commodities price rises

These issues are compounded by the curfew that is relaxed only for a few hours every day, which is when people rush to buy all essential items and medicines.

Manipur violence

The situation in Manipur has been dire since violence broke out between Kuki and Mieti communities a month ago. The prices of essential commodities have shot up significantly, and there is a lack of life-saving drugs. Additionally, banks and ATMs have run out of cash. It all happened after civil bodies blocked National Highway Number 2 and obstructed good trucks from entering Imphal.

Since petrol pumps are running low on fuel, Manipur people are paying Rs 200 for a litre of petrol on the black market.

Prices of other essential commodities are also showing a steep rise. Prices of rice have risen to Rs. 60 per kg from Rs. 30 earlier. The cost of potatoes is now Rs. 40 instead of Rs. 15, and eggs are as costly as Rs. 10 per piece, up from the earlier Rs. 6.

This severe situation of high prices and shortages of essentials has reached such a state that people are panic-buying and hoarding.

Even the relief camps where people from both communities have taken shelter do not have enough food. People who have fallen ill in these camps are not getting medical aid.

These issues are compounded by the curfew that is relaxed only for a few hours every day, which is when people rush to buy all essential items and medicines.

The people of Manipur are battling multiple issues, including no internet, ATMs running out of cash, and the Reserve Bank of India’s announcement to withdraw Rs. 2000 from circulation. During the initial days of the curfew, banks operated for limited hours, causing a rush of people attempting to complete their essential transactions before the curfew relaxation expired. However, due to a fresh outbreak of violence, the banks were subsequently closed.

During his recent visit to Manipur, Home Minister Amit Shah announced the preparation of a relief and rehabilitation package for those affected by the conflict. Additionally, a peace committee comprising members of civil society, led by the Manipur Governor, will be established.

The central government has dispatched eight teams of medical experts, including 20 doctors, to aid the victims of the violence in Manipur.

To assist stranded individuals and regulate the prices of essential items, a temporary platform is being constructed at Khongsang railway station.

Following a ‘Tribal Solidarity March’ to oppose the Meitei community’s demand for Scheduled Tribe (ST) designation, the conflict between the Meitei and Kuki groups erupted last month.
