Imphal: Consequent upon a marathon meeting and in-depth discussion with Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday, President of the Poirei Leimarol, Lourembam Memchoubi-led seven women leaders (Meira Paibis) and representatives of three Women Markets (Ima Keithels) of Imphal called upon Manipur Governor Anusuiya Uikey at the Raj Bhavan later on Tuesday.

The women representatives also urged the Governor to ensure provision of adequate supply of essential items to the displaced people who are taking shelter in different relief camps and to take steps for their resettlement and rehabilitation as early as possible. They also requested the Governor for lifting ban on internet connectivity, stating that the ban hampered normal activities.
Governor Uikey is learnt to have assured the representatives of taking all necessary measures for the restoration of peace and normalcy in the state. The Governor also informed the team that all out efforts were being made to prevent any untoward incidents in future.
