Singh, Minister of State for External Affairs, said he had built his house with prayers and was unable to understand why it was targeted.

“Someone tries to vandalise it, demolish it, I am in shock. I never expect such kind of attitude and activities from my fellow citizens of this state. I pray to God also not to happen again. This is the second time, the first time, I anyhow convinced them and the security protected…. that was in the early evening. This time yesterday it was late night, around 10:30. Everything was normal, suddenly crowds of people came and attacked, I was told,” Singh informed through ANI.

“I do not know why they are attacking. There is no reason. In the whole process, I am trying to bring peace, negotiating…my senior ministers and colleagues to bring normalcy in the state. In the meanwhile, this kind of unwanted incident happened. If my sons and daughters and family happens to be here…that burning and throwing of petrol, it seems to attempt on my life also,” he said.

“Law and order condition in Manipur is a total failure. The existing government could not maintain peace that’s why the central government has sent a lot of protections and Rapid Action Force. I don’t know how the state machine is failing, I feel like that,” he added.

The minister had told ANI earlier that about 50 miscreants had attacked his house.

“It is extremely sad to see what happened last night. I was told that more than 50 miscreants attacked my home. Damage has been done to the ground floor and the first floor of my residence. Neither I nor anybody from my family was present during that time. Thankfully, nobody got injured.”
