The Trinamul Congress on Monday said a five-member party delegation will visit the ethnic strife-torn Manipur on July 14 to reach out to the affected people of the northeastern state.
More than 120 people were killed in the state in violence since early May.
The delegation will comprise Rajya Sabha leader Derek O'Brien, Rajya Sabha MP Dola Sen and Lok Sabha MPs Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar, Kalyan Banerjee and Sushmita Dev.
“A four-member fact-finding delegation of MPs from @AITCofficial will visit Manipur on July 14... (It) will reach out to those affected and provide some healing comfort for a ‘DOUBLE ENGINE’ state that the @BJP4India government has ignored over the last 3 months,” the TMC tweeted.
The party later said, "Manipur visit by @Aitcofficial delegation. 5 member delegation. includes @sushmitadevAITC." The Trinamul Congress has been alleging that the "divisive" policies of the BJP-led governments at the Centre and in Manipur have led to ethnic strife.
