In his key note address, co-convener of JCILPS Ng. Deba said that the newly proposed MRNP Bill 2016 does not content any provision to protect the indigenous people of the state. He said the JCILPS stands not to support the Bill.
He said the definition provided in the new proposed Bill at which a local people is defined as those who have been in the state since January 21, 1972 could not be accepted by the JCILPS as the roots of the issue of the demographic imbalance occur during the 1951 onward.
He further state that the base year should be 1951 based on the relevant documents of NRC 1951, Census report of 1951, electoral roll of 1952, Electoral roll of 1948 or any relevant documents for the same.
Ng. Deba further stated that the state government has failed to implement the agreement made between JCIPLS and government of Manipur on August 25, 2015 by not commissioning  Manipur population commission, Manipur land reform commission, Agreements made between AMSU and AMSCOC with government in 1980 and agreement made between AMSU and government of Manipur in 1994, which are under the purview of the state government.
He said, police unruly action of arresting former JCILPS convenor Khomdram Ratan is highly condemnable.
