 JAC formed against the passing of the 3 ILPS related Bills has called a 15 hours total shut down in Lamka (Churachandpur) and its vicinity areas starting from March 17 midnight.
The total shut down is being called to show respect and mourning for the nine tribal martyrs who were killed during the sudden uproar in Churachandpur town following the passing of the 3 ILPS related Bills on August 31 last year, said a statement of the JAC.
During the total shut down which will continue till 3 pm of March 18, the JAC asked all shops and establishment to remain close besides ban on any vehicular movement. Tribal license gun-owner are also asked to pay gun salute to the tribal martyrs using gun powders from their respective homes  at 9 am of March 18 as a mark of tribute to the tribal martyrs.
The JAC further added that mass prayers for tribal movement will also be conducted at Lamka Public ground at 5 pm of the same day.
The JAC terms the passing of the three ILPS related Bills  – The Manipur Land Revenue and Land reforms (Seventh Amendment) Bill, 2015, the Manipur Shops and establishments (Second Amendment) Bill 2015 and the protection of Manipur People Bill, 2015 as anti tribal Bills.
It said March 18, 2016 will mark the 200th day of expressing their sorrow and unrelenting struggle for justice for tribal land, rights and identity.
The JAC blamed both the central government and the state government for failing to acknowledge the anguish and the claims for the rights of the tribal people as enshrine in the constitution of India.
