Mr. Gandhi said that the violence in Manipur was a direct result of a particular type of politics of division, hatred and anger. He claimed it was also a lesson to him on what happens when such a politics was used in a State. Pointing out that the wounds inflicted as a result would take many years to heal, Mr. Gandhi said the sadness and anger would not go away so easily. It was important to keep every one together as a family, he added.
