Rahul Gandhi visits relief camps in Manipur, what victims told him? What Rahul said?

Churachandpur (Manipur): Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, who is Leader of Opposition (LoP) in Lok Sabha, on Monday met people in relief camps in Churachandpur in Manipur and offered them support.

The inmates staying in relief camps highlighted their problems due to ethnic violence in the state.

A youth who has been staying in the camp after ethnic violence erupted in the state, said they are happy over the visit of Rahul Gandhi and hoped that the Congress leader will highlight their issues.

A college student staying in one of the relief camps said that her house in Chandel district was burnt on May 4 last year. She has been living in the relief camp along with her family.

She said, "We want separate administration. We have been suffering here for long. We have been here since the crisis. I don't think there is peace. There is still a crisis. My house in Chandel district was burnt down on May 4. It has been a year now."

The Congress leader arrived at the Imphal airport Monday afternoon to visit relief camps.

Rahul Gandhi visited the Jiribam Higher Secondary School relief camp and offered support to the victims of violence there.

Rahul Gandhi said, "After travelling through Manipur today, it has been hugely disappointing to see that there has been no improvement in the situation. I came here to listen to the people and understand their pain, it's clear that violence is hurting everybody and the need of the hour is peace. 

Rahul said further, "The Congress party and I are ready to do whatever it takes to bring back peace to Manipur. Manipur is a proud State of the Indian Union - every patriot should reach out and help bring back peace here. In the face of this huge tragedy,  I request the Prime Minister to come here, listen to the people and offer them comfort. Congress party is ready to support anything that would improve the situation."

Earlier in the day, Rahul Gandhi visited Assam to meet the victims of floods affected victims at a relief camp in Fulertal, Lakhipur.
