Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Tuesday slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his party BJP over violence in Manipur. 

“Is this the leadership Manipur needs, or is the power of advertisements enough to make it sound great,” she wrote on X. 

Her remarks followed an incident in which four villagers were gunned down on Monday in Thoubal district.

Gandhi noted that Narendra Modi neither went to Manipur nor talked about Manipur, nor replied in Parliament, nor took any action.

"Four people were killed in Manipur, many people were injured, there is curfew in many districts. The people of Manipur have been facing murder, violence and destruction for eight months. When will this trend stop?" she added.

The Congress general secretary added that the government must take concrete steps to bring stability in Manipur.

Around 200 people have been killed in Manipur since fighting broke out between members of the majority Meitei and minority Kuki communities in the state in May, following a court order suggesting privileges granted to Kukis to be extended to Meiteis.
