The Court called for due arrangements to be made in relief camps, and for necessary  preventives to be taken for the  recuperation of displaced persons, and to  cover places of religious  deification.  The Apex Court on Monday was informed by Solicitor General of India Tushar Mehta, appearing for the Manipur government, that  enterprises regarding the ongoing violence in the State will be addressed and that remedial measures will be taken on a  visionary base.  A Bench of CJI DY Chandrachud with justice PS Narasimha and JB Pardiwala emphasized that due arrangements be made in relief camps, and that the State must take all necessary  preventives for the  recuperation of displaced persons, and to  cover places of religious  deification. ” Solicitor General has assured that  enterprises flagged will be addressed and remedial measures will be taken on a  visionary base. We emphasise that due arrangements be made in relief camps in terms of food, medical; taking all necessary  preventives for the  recuperation of displaced persons, and  guarding places of religious  deification,” the Court said in its order.  SG Mehta had filed a report outlining several measures taken to address the situation in Manipur.  According to Mehta, 52 companies of CAPF and 101 companies of Assam Rifles were stationed to address the situation. Flag marches were conducted in disturbed areas, a  elderly police officer was appointed as security  counsel and a  elderly officer from the Central government was made Chief Secretary. Further, peace meetings were held, relief camps were opened for displaced persons and the movement of stranded  individualities was eased by security forces.  Mehta claimed that these  sweats have redounded in no reported violence in the last two days, and that the situation is returning to normality. He added that in fact, the curfew in the State was relaxed for three to four hours with no untoward incident, which further indicated that the situation is under control.  The Court was hearing three  desires concerning the ongoing clashes and attendant violence in the State of Manipur.  The incidents stemmed from the opposition of certain  lines to the demand by the  maturity Meitei community to be granted Scheduled Tribe status.  On April 19, the Manipur High Court had ordered the State government to consider the same within four weeks.  One of the pleas before the top court, filed by the Hill Areas Committee Chairperson and BJP MLA Dinganglung Gangmei, has challenged the order of the Manipur High Court on Scheduled Tribe status for the Meitei community.  That petition stated that there’s no offer for the addition of Meiteis pending with the Central government, and that no  cognate offer has ever been  transferred by the State to the Central government.  Another PIL filed by the Manipur HC supplicated for directions to the Central and State governments to safely  void the Manipuri tribals who had fled to Central Reserve Police Forces camps.  The PIL  contended that the attacks on  ethnical communities in Manipur has the full support of the Bharatiya Janata Party( BJP), which is in power in the State as well as at the Centre.
