Imphal: A day after six people were injured in political clashes in Manipur, Chief Minister N Biren Singh on Tuesday said action will be taken against those who will engage in violence.
Assembly election is due in Manipur in early 2022.
Asking all not to indulge in violence in the run-up to the election, the chief minister said licensed guns will soon be collected from the general public.
Six people were injured in a clash between supporters of rival political parties at Yairipok Yambem village under Andro assembly constituency in Imphal East district.
