Imphal, Feb 9: Joint Committee of Inner Line Permit System (JCILPS), which has been spearheading series of agitation for implementation of the Inner Line permit system in the state today warned the Congress party for allotting party ticket to a non-local for contesting the upcoming state assembly election in Kangpokpi Assembly constituency
Speaking to media persons at its office, today after, convenor in charge of the JCILPS BK Moirangcha said that allotting tickets to a non local for contesting the state assembly election is nothing but a direct challenge to the movement of the people for protecting the indigenous people.
He said it is not on community line but rather about those non-local which had settled in the state after 1951 that the people had been opposing as it is nothing but another plot to suppress the peoples’ movement.
“JCILPS is dead serious to the allotment of party ticket for contesting state election to non-local people who had come to the state after 1951”, BK Moirangcha said.
He said Congress had recently announced a non-local called Gadga Bahadur Tamang to contest election in  Kakpokpi Assembly Constituency. After JCIPLS investigate the origin of the candidate announced the said candidate has been called for talk with the JCILPS yesterday and he failed to turn up, said BK Moirangcha. He added that when contacted the candidate said that he had forgotten about the meeting and he again scheduled Feb 11 to hold meeting.
The JCILPS leader further said that Manipur State Darbar of 1946, approved 64 clans of Nepali people to settle in the state by the Tamang clan was not among the approved list.
Moirangcha further said that the JCILPS somewhat tone down the agitation in view of the school children examinations, the economic blockade and also the attack by armed militants to the Chief Minister of Manipur, however it does not meant that the JCILPS will end the struggle for implementation of a legislation to protect the indigenous people of the state, Moirangcha added.
Stating that a total of 567 people including students were injured in a series of agitation in the last few years for implementation of ILPS. Among these some had lost their eyes and some eardrums. Moreover a student called Robinhood had sacrifice his life during the course of agitation, he added.

Base year or cut-off year as 1951 has been rejected outrightly and issue has been in argument. Now the particular candidate is local or non-local cant be decided by anyone including so-called JCILPS. He might have mass followers or a popular figure which might be local or nonlocal with the base year 1951 which is not settled yet. Dictating terms in the political process, guaranteed by constitution and at this juncture when people are suffering the hardship of blockade to rake up another move to cause inconveniences to the people wnt be tolerated anymore and wont get any support. On the contrary, people will ask questions whether they are acting at the behest of anti-government parties, or against the will of the mass supported government to tide the popularity of the present govt. in wrong side. enough. Give us a break.
