Let us tell you that this decision is considered to be the catalyst for the beginning of large-scale violence between the Kuki and Meitei communities in Manipur. Let us know what the court has said in its order on Thursday.

What did the High Court say?

In the para of the decision last year, it was said that the State Government will consider the request of the petitioners for inclusion of Meitei/Meitei community in the Scheduled Tribe list expeditiously, if possible within a period of four weeks from the date of receipt of the order. . The Manipur High Court on Thursday said that this para is contrary to the stand taken by the Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court in the matter.
