Imphal March 17: Functions of Food Corporation of India (FCI) and Food and Civil Supply (FCS) godowns were largely hampered by Joint Committee of Inner Line Permit System’s boycott of non-local. Almost all shops runs by non Manipuri at Paona Market, Thangal Bazar and Khwairambandh Keithel area were also remained shuts today fearing unwanted consequences if stood against the dictate of the JCILPS.

Sources said that the godowns of FCI and FCS remained closed today as the non-local labourers did not turn out to work. As there is no one to unload the food items from the loaded trucks, a large number of them are stuck near the surrounding area of FCI and FCS godown. It is said that almost all the labourers of FCI are non-locals. However, there are few local labourers in FCS.

The source further said that even though the non-local labourers do not show up, many local labourers were ready to unload the food grains from the trucks. However, they did not get the opportunity to work as the godowns remained closed.

Meanwhile, protesting strongly against the passing of Manipur Regulation of Visitors, Tenants, and Migrant Workers Bill, 2015 (MRVT&MW), Joint Committee on Inner Line Permit System today staged sit-in-protests at various place of the state.

As a part of the protest, Naoriya Pakhanglakpa Kendra Women Welfare Association staged at Mongshangei Boroi Makhong Market Shed. Effigies of Chief Minister and other MLAs were also burnt at the protest site. Womenfolk of Pishumthong, Khagempalli, Paona Market and various other places also staged sit in protests at Pishumthong, Khagempalli, Paona Market and various places.

It may be mentioned that JCILPS and many sections of the people of the state strongly protested the Manipur Regulation of Visitors, Tenants, and Migrant Workers Bill, 2015 (MRVT&MW), since the moment it was introduced in the Assembly and called a 18 hour statewide general strike demanding to rectify the bill before it was passed. However, the Assembly of the state passed the bill yesterday in spite of strong protest of the people.
