A protest called Justice For Manipur was held today in front of Bengaluru’s Town Hall to protest the violence and rape that have been happening in Manipur for the past two and a half months.

At Freedom Park in Bengaluru, over 400 people from different walks of life protested the heinous crimes in the northeastern state. Activists and NGOs questioned the BJP-led central government for campaigning during the legislative elections in Karnataka when Manipur was burning.

Several people could be seen carrying signs that said things like “protect women,” “save the constitutions,” and “the rulers are erasing.” The demonstrators demanded that they end the state’s brutality and claimed that the Central Government was directly to blame for it.

Vimala KS of All India Democratic Women’s Association (AIDWA) told reporters, “On May 4, where were PM Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah when law and order was being dismantled? They were busy seeking votes in Karnataka. Our PM has the time to visit different nations, but for 77 days he was mum on the voices being clamped down in Manipur.” She added that slogans such as Beti Bachao, Beti Padho and empowering women are just eyewash.

Activist Brinda Adige said, “The ignominy of the situation in Manipur, the crimes against women, children and men in both communities have made Manipur unsafe. I can’t imagine what the women who were paraded naked must have gone through.”

The demonstrators demanded that Manipur’s internet service be reinstated. Angry protesters demanded the resignation of Chief Minister N Biren Singh for failing to stop the violence. Additionally, there were requests to put the President’s rule into effect.

Numerous students, including the KRS party’s head Janani Vatsala and activist Akai Padmashali, took part in the demonstration at Bengaluru’s Town Hall.
