The meeting was particularly significant in light of recent events as a rally organised by the Coordination Committee (COCOMI), the umbrella body of Meitei civil society groups took place the same day. 

Reports indicate that several protesters had marched toward security force barricades erected between two tense districts in Manipur, leading to clashes that prompted the security forces to use tear gas and rubber bullets. Several individuals sustained injuries and were subsequently admitted to local hospitals.

Some media outlets mentioned the inclusion of SoO Groups at the CM meeting, however, EastMojo spoke to an official source present at the meeting who confirmed that the information was false.
