12 hours total shut down called for 2 days – total on 3rd day

Imphal, Aug 28: The JAC formed in the aftermath of the passing of the three ILPS related Bills by Manipur Legislative on August 31 last year is giving negative response to the called by state government for consultation to the new Bill prepared for protection of the indigenous people for passing in the upcoming state Assembly session scheduled to begin from September 2.
Instead of coming forward to find a solution to the differences on the content of the Bills, the JAC, which called the ILPS related Bills passed by the state Assembly as “Anti Tribal Bill” had vehemently opposed any attempt for introduction of any Bill to enforce Inner Line Permit System in the state. The JAC instead of giving comment to the newly prepared Bills has line up for series of demonstration to show their stand against the Bills and also is in the run up for a weeklong protest for “Tribal Unity Day” which is scheduled to observe on August 31.
A emergency meeting organized by the JAC Churachandpur yesterday had resolved to call on total shut down in Churachandpur district from today midnight till 12 noon tomorrow. Similar shut down will also continue on the following day. According to the resolution adopted in yesterday’s meeting the JAC has called on a total shut down for 12 hours starting from today midnight in Lamka (Churachandpur and its vicinity area. The shut down will be followed by a rally demonstration at Sadar Hills under the initiative of the Thadou Women’s Association General Headquarters. At the same time a rally will also staged at CCpur district headquarter from CCpur College Campus by covering their mouth with black cloth. At 6.30 PM the JAc appealed to light candle at every household.
On August 30 too similar 12 hours shut down will be followed till 12 noon. A 34 Km long protest march is also from Singhat to Lamka on the same day. At 6.30 pm every household is appealed to light candle at every household. The JAc will also organize a mass prayer and will release flying lanterns at 6.30 pm from Sapha Pumbuk, Churachandpur and will follow a torch rally.
On August 31, the day when the state assembly passed the 3 ILPS related Bills and the mass uprising took place last year, the JAC called total shut down of all institutions and establishments in all tribal areas. However free passage will be given all private (non-commercial) vehicles.
The nine dead bodies who were killed during the uprising are still kept without performing the last rite. And as a mark of tribute to the nine tribal people, traditional gun salute and traditional Gong will be paid by tribal house holds at 9 am. At 10 am the JAC organized a tribute paying ceremony and this will be followed by the observance of Tribal Unity day. This was resolved during the emergency meeting held yesterday.

How they flex their muscle against the indigenous people of Manipur? We indigenous people of manipur should not be the fate of Tripuri. How, illegal migrants from neighbouring countries flex their muscle when they are holding high posts and demographic dominance?
