New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi will be on a two-day visit to Manipur from Thursday.

According to the itinerary shared by the party, the former Congress president, during his visit to the violence-hit Northeastern state, will meet affected families at relief camps in Churachandpur and Bishnupur districts.

Among others, Rahul will also interact with representatives of civil society.

Earlier, senior Congress leader KC Venugopal, while apprising about the former party’s chief visit to Manipur, said, “Manipur has been burning for nearly two months and desperately needs a healing touch so that the society can move from conflict to peace. This is a humanitarian tragedy, and it is our responsibility to be a force of love, not hate.”

The Congress has been blaming the BJP-led government for the current crisis in Manipur. The grand old party demanded the dismissal of Chief Minister N Biren Singh.
