Manipur: The Manipur High Court has modified a 2023 order in which it issued direction to the state government for considering the inclusion of Meiteis in the Scheduled Tribes (ST) list.

The High Court has ordered deletion of a paragraph from a March 2023 order that urged the state to consider including the Meitei community in the Scheduled Tribe list saying the paragraph was in conflict with the Supreme Court’s constitution bench stance.

It was after this order, the state witnessed widespread violence between tribal communities in which several people were killed and many more had injured.
