The nature of the violence in Manipur has shifted from clashes between two communities to attacks by insurgents on security forces now, Chief Minister N Biren Singh told NDTV in an exclusive interview.

The comments come amid fierce gunfights between the security forces and insurgents in Moreh, a key trading town on the India-Myanmar border.

"During these past eight months, unwanted incidents took place on some days, not for the whole eight months. Three-four months were peaceful and silent. The violence during the new year was between the state security forces and militants, not between two communities. Now, the dimension of the conflict has changed to state forces fighting against militants," Mr Singh told NDTV in an interview.
