Manipur Withdraws 'No Refuge For Myanmarese' Order: Government Sources

New Delhi:

The Manipur government has withdrawn an earlier order against local authorities setting up food and shelter camps for Myanmar citizens entering India due to the ongoing turmoil in the neighbouring country, sources have said. The order, sent out on March 26, also had asked border officials to “politely turn away” those seeking refuge in India.

The state Home department’s instructions to the deputy commissioners of Chandel, Tengnoupal, Kamjong, Ukhrul, and Churachandpur had even asked them to ensure that Aadhar enrolment was stopped immediately and the kits used in the procedure were taken to safe custody.

The officials had been asked to submit an action-taken report on the matter by today.
