Janata Dal (United), Manipur Unit lambasts the Manipur Government for buying time to the solution of the ongoing agitation for implementation of ILP system in the state as well as to the punishment of those police personnel involved in the killing of Sapam Robin hood.
Speaking to media persons at its Babupara office, President of JD(U), N. Tombi said there is no need to take more time by inviting opinions from the public by the drafting committee as the JCILPS has already submitted its five point recommendations for inclusion to the bill.
Tombi further added that various experts, scholars as well as representatives of the political party had submitted their recommendations for inclusion to the bill besides the five points submitted by the JCILPS in February. The drafting committee can discuss the recommendation already in the possession of the government instead of buying time, if they sincerely felt it important for speedy drafting of the bill.
speaking to the media person that All Political party and various experts of the state submitted to the government in February twice which included the JCILPS 5 points, that can also be use as drafting for new bill instead delaying the time, If the government work sincerely for the people.
On the other hand the JD (U) president appreciated the government decision to commission a judicial enquiry to the death of Sapam Robinhood, however expressed displeasure to the home department for keeping the police personnel involved in the killing still engaging instead of keeping them under suspension. Tombi said if the government suspended those involved police personnel then the JAC form against the brutal killing of Sapam Robinhood would not have called the 38 hours bandh starting from 5 am today.
On the idea of BJP about enforcing an ordinance, JD(U) said ordinance is not what the people want as it is limited for only 6 months. He said the party will not compromise the ILP Bill with nothing else.
Tombi further appealed the government to find an immediate solution for opening of the schools at the earliest possible time.
