The lawless Law

The man who was declared “Wanted” with a reward of Rs. 5,00,000/- to anybody who give information about his whereabouts turns out to be perfect example of how the law of the land is being made a mockery by the state police department.
The day, when the state police department declared wanted to Khomdram Ratan, the then convenor of the JCILPS, (on June 2, 2016), he was seen speaking to media persons and the same was broadcasted at local cable news channels, All India radio and almost all the print media of the state. This means that the state police did not do much table work, or perhaps all the entire authority of the state home department lacks complete knowledge of the legal provision on whom to be declared wanted.
Following the declaration, seizure of around rupees 35 lakhs or more from the personal bank account of khomdram Ratan perhaps made the public apprehensive on the credential of Khomdram Ratan as police department declared him wanted base on a news report published by a national newspaper at which a nexus was established between the former JCILPS leader and a rebel group after a photograph of him with some suspected leaders of an underground group went viral in social media.
Motives behind the declaration of Ratan as “wanted” were crystal clear. Linking of the peoples’ movement with the UGs is perhaps considered a technique to control the peoples’ agitation demanding implementation of Inner Line permit system in the state. However, Mr. Okram Ibobi , who is the Chief Minister of Manipur and who had experienced in the chair for almost 3 terms seems to have lacked the idea of world becoming a global village where each and every people across the globe communicates in just few seconds irrespective of where they stayed. He seems to have forgotten that acting like a monarch will someday sabotage his good career. May be he thought it would be a blessing if the kind of ILPS agitation is suppressed to get blessing of those in the central government, then it is likely that his name will be remembered as an omen to the people of this state. His hard earned name will be no less then Ravana of the Ramayana.
It’s is now no hiding and seeking game. The former JCILPS leader now came out in public and joined the relay hunger strike protest today at Keishampat Leimajam Leikai. Before too he had challenged the declaration of wanted to him at the law court and the final hearing has been reserved with the Manipur High Court.
Now, depending upon this development it is now clear that – whatever be the motives of the Ibobi Singh led congress government, there is no way the people of the state will make U-turn to the demand for Inner Line Permit System to protect the threatened indigenous people of the region.
Fueling anger to a clique of people by empowering them the unlawful law by Mr. Ibobi Singh will not succeed in distorting the unity of this erstwhile kingdom. By promoting hate mongering speech and activities that might incite communal enmity among various communities of the state will only lead him towards Hell. It would have been much appreciative had Mr. Chief Minister and his law enforcers take good care of those who are spreading rumours to create enmity among various communities of the state instead of declaring wanted to a person who is not hiding.
