Imphal, July 13:

At least 19 civil bodies of various ethnic communities of the state had submitted a memorandum to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging for implementation of the National Register for Citizen (NRC) in the state of Manipur to trace the foreign migrant who has been illegally settling in the state.
The CSOs – Tangkhul Naga Headman’s Association, Mao Council Manipur, Tarao Tribe Union, Manipur, Chiru Union NEI, Manipur, Zerne Naga Council, Manipur, Lamkang Tribe Union, Manipur, Korn Union Manipur, Chothe Tribe Union, Manipur, Maring Tribe Union, Maram Union, Manipur, Liangmai Naga Council, Manipur, Khoibu Tribe Union, Mayon Naga Council, Manipur, Thangal Union, Manipur, Aimol Tribe Union, Manipur, Anal Chiefs’ Association, Kabui Union Manipur, Federation of Haomee and Inpui Naga Union, Manipur while appreciating the Government of India under Prime Minister Narendra Modi for implementation of the Inner Line Permit System in the state elaborated on the need for implementation of NRC in Manipur in view of the unnatural growth of population due to influx of foreigners from Bangladesh, Nepal, and Myanmar.
The CSOs expressed utmost gratitude to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the extension of Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation 1873 in Manipur that the people of Manipur had struggled with for long years since 1990.
The memorandum said as Manipur is a border state the intrusion of immigrants from Bangladesh, Myanmar, and Nepal by far and autonomously had settled at large since the abolition of the Pass Permit / Permit System on 18 November 1950 by the then Chief Commissioner Himmat Singh. On this issue, no discerning step had taken up so far for the last 75 years under the Foreigners Act 1946. Because of this continuous overflow of influxes, which subsisted within us, has now taken possession of the socio-economic and political rights of the indigenous people. Bangladeshi and Myanmar Muslims have occupied the constituency of Jiribam and numbered of them scattered on average in valley areas. Myanmar Kuki and nearby Lushai Kuki have settled at an unsystematic population of some lakhs in number. They have now counteracted ownership against the occupant indigenous people in hill areas. Likewise, the Nepali population has raised a tremendous number.
The memorandum signed by the 19 CSOs demanded the Inner Line Permit System be enforced in the state of Manipur, to give a complete definition of the indigenous people of Manipur which is yet to be defined.
The memorandum also expressed its trust in the central government over its commitment to protect the Indian citizens under constitutional protection.
“Amit Shah ji delivered a remarkable speech in the Rajya Sabha of the Indian Parliament on 19 November 2019 that NRC would be implemented throughout the country. In the light of this perception, we call for the implementation of NRC in Manipur to safeguard the genuine citizens”, the memorandum said.
The memorandum also recalled the movement of the Foreigner issue, which demanded the Detection & Deportation of Foreigners from Manipur. In 1980 & 1994, the All Manipur Students Union (AMSU) & Al! Manipur Coordinating Committee (AMSCOC) had undergone an agreement twice with the Manipur Government & the then Governor of Manipur V. K. Nair regarding the Detection and Deportation of Foreign nationals from the soil of Manipur base on the year 1951. Nevertheless, the Manipur past as well as present government has not taken up any steps toward the agreement. Therefore, the foreigners are a great threat to the indigenous people of Manipur and as a whole in respect of India too for a long time. It is the request to our responsible Center Government to open Centers of operation for Detection & Deportation of foreigners with immediate footsteps.
