Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday (26 June) chaired a crucial meeting to take stock of the Manipur violence.

The meeting came after Home Minister Amit Shah held an all-party meet on Saturday (24 June), reports NDTV.

Shah briefed PM Modi about Manipur situation and internal security conditions in the violence-hit Northeastern state.

In a tweet on Sunday, Singh said that Shah has assured that the central government will take all possible steps to bring normalcy in Manipur.

He added that Shah advised the state government to strengthen the work "towards achieving everlasting peace and also sought the cooperation of every stakeholders in Manipur to ensure that peace prevails in the State".
