Actress-turned-politician Jaya Bachchan has raised her voice against the government’s silence regarding the disturbing Manipur incident. In a scathing criticism, she expressed her dismay that while the world was discussing the violence in the northeastern state, India’s leaders were not addressing it in Parliament.
Jaya Bachchan urges government to address Manipur violence; says, “It is a shame that they don’t want to have a discussion”
The incident in question involved a horrifying viral video showing two women being paraded naked by men in Manipur amid the ongoing violence. Jaya Bachchan reacted strongly to the distressing footage, admitting that she was unable to watch the entire clip and felt deep shame. Despite the gravity of the situation, she pointed out that no words of sympathy were uttered by the authorities.
While speaking to the media, the Samajwadi Party MP asserted, “Manipur ke vishay mein internationally sab log charcha kar rahe hain, hamare desh mein nahi ho rahi hai. Iss se zyada main kya keh sakti hoon? It is a shame, charcha woh karna nahi chahte hain.”

The veteran actress further added, “Aur house ke andar aap jo states ki baat kar rahe hain, woh apke strong opponents hain. Aap unki baat kar rahe hai. Aapke rajya mein kya ho raha hai, aap ke states mein kya ho raha hai? Kya ho raha hai UP mein, Madhya Pradesh mein, aap batayiye. Baki jo kuch bhi unka bacha hai, aage toh bachega bhi nahi.”
