JCILPS ready to resume agitations

IT News

Imphal, May 25,

As 17th Lok Sabha Election is over, Joint Committee on Inner Line Permit System (JCILPS) is all set to resume its agitation for protection of the Indigenous people of the region.

In a press meet held today morning at the office of the JCILPS, Convenor, Yumnamcha Dilip said that, as the Lok Sabha election is over , the JCILPS will now resume its various demand for protection of the Indigenous people of the state. Clarifying on why the JCILPS remain quiet for some time, Convenor of the JCILPS , Yumnamcha Dilip said that as there had been model code of conduct and because of that the voice or movement of the JCILPS will in no way be considered due to the MCC, the JCILPS  have to remain silent for some time.

“It does not mean that we have given up our demand, but we are waiting for the right time, to push our demand”, Dilip said.

He further added that the first thing that the JCILPS will demand is to urge the government for pressing the central leadership to get presidential consent of the “Manipur Peoples’ Bill” which was passed by the state legislative assembly.

“The ruling BJP had also assured to press the central leadership for passing of the Manipur Peoples Bill during election campaign time”, Dilip said.

He also said that certain other issues for protection of the indigenous people like commissioning of the already established Population Control Commission, introduction of NRC are also in the priority of the JCILPS. If the government did not fulfilled the demand of the JCILPS, the state will face intense form of agitation in the coming days, Dilip said.

What is more interesting is that Yumnamcha Dilip stated that the JCIPS will also stand strong opposition to Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB). MANPAC, an organization which has been spearheading against CAB will continue the movement against the passing of the Bill. Yumnamcha Dilip is also the convenor of the MANPAC.

In the BJP Election Manifesto, the party promise to introduce CAB if it comes to power. Now with over 300 seats of the BJP alone the party is returning back to power. Soon after the declaration of the election result Himanta Biswas Sharma of Assam, who is considered as the architect for the success of BJP in the NE India, had stated that the party will bring CAB to the Country.
