Manipur demands implementation of Inner Land Permit
The agitation for the implementation of the Inner Land Permit System has gained ground in Manipur, even as non-Manipuris without proper identity proof and those settling illegally or otherwise have been banned in the Thongju Part I and II areas in Imphal East district.
Earlier this week, 15 clubs representing Thongju Part I and II, under the aegis of the Thongju Chigonglei Makhong Development Club, organised a mass rally, which was followed by a sit-in protest and a human chain.
The rally condemned the indifferent attitude of the state government regarding the movement of people and demanded the implementation of ILPS in the state.
The bans in Thongju Part I and II are being seen as a first step in the implementation of a state-wise ILPS in Manipur.
