Anti-ILPS Bills protest underway
On the other hand volunteers and the women folk of the anti-ILPS Bills continue to stage sit-in-protest at Salphate Pumbuk, Hiangtam Lamka in Churachandpur district head quarter.
Even as the protest of both the anti Bills and the pro Bills is being underway, government seem to be taking up no initiative to bring an end to the ungoing protest of both the opposite party.
It is made to public that, of the 3 ILPS related Bills the president of India has decline to give assent to only one Bill that is “The Protection of Manipur people Bill, 2015”. The other two Bills already got green signal from the central government as it is being studied for reasonable conclusion.
The silence of the state government on what to move ahead after their recent visit to New Delhi for apprising the central leadership to get the Bills presidential assent is being criticized by political analyst.
