Following the intensification of the protest demanding implementation of the ILPS by JCILPS, an emergency meeting of the Hill Area Committee was held today at the residential quarter of the HAC chairman Dr. Chaltolian Amo at Lamphel. The meeting started at around 10 am today morning and continue till late in evening.
Details of the meeting could not be obtained however sources said that the committee discussed in depth about the present situation arisen in the state in the aftermath of the passing of the 3 Bills related to the implementation of the ILPS in the state.
The sources also said that the meeting was convened as the committee received unbearable pressure from the civil society organisation based at Hill district who are opposing the ILPS related Bills passed by the state Assembly.
The committee also discussed about the probable outcome of the all political party delegation which is preparing to visit Delhi to give pressure for getting assent of the three Bills pending with the President of India.
As the Hill based civil society organisations are strongly opposing the 3 Bills, the members of the Hill area committee discussed on the issue as the MLA might face various difficulties in the upcoming general Assembly election scheduled to be held on 2017.
However, when contacted by Imphal Times, one MLA said it was just a tea party and not a meeting of the HAC. He said no political issue was discussed in the meeting.
