Imphal May 2: A public awareness campaign is being organized by the JAC against anti -tribal bills at Thanlon against the marginalization, subjugation and exclusion policies of the Manipur Government against the Indigenous Tribal populace. According to a press release of the JAC, a 15-member team will be leaving Lamka tomorrow morning to oversee the set-up for the same. Reiterating that the three bills- Protection of Manipur Peoples Bill 2015, Manipur Land Revenue & Land Reforms (seventh amendment) Bill 2015, and Manipur Shops & Establishment (second amendment) Bill 2015 have nothing to do with the Inner Line Permit Systems (ILPS) which is currently enforced in the tribal states of Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram and Nagaland to regulate entry of outsiders into these states with the intention of protecting the tribal lands and their unique way of life, the release states that the three anti-tribal Bills directly infringe on tribal identity, tribal land rights and tribal livelihood and are mere tactics to grab tribal lands by the state government, alleging them to be a tactic to take over the rights and entitlements of the hill tribes. The release concluded with an appeal to all the tribals of the state to support the ongoing movement which is being carried out for the identity, land rights and livelihood as well as the very survival of the tribal people and not be swayed by the divisive policies and tactics of the communal government and its cohorts.
