Chidambaram to visit Manipur, Nagaland today

NEW DELHI: Home minister P Chidambaram will visit Manipur and Nagaland on Tuesday to have a first hand account of the security situation in the two troubled states.

Chidambaram will hold a security review meeting at the Imphal secretariat with chief minister Okram Ibobi Singh and senior officials. From Imphal, he will fly to Nagaland's commercial capital Dimapur where he will hold another security review meeting at the Police Training Academy at Chumukedima.

Chidambaram is likely to emphasise the need to ensure strict enforcement of the ceasefire ground rules with NSCN (IM) and NSCN (K). The infighting between rival Naga groups has been a matter of anguish for the home ministry.
