Frequent detention of Myanmar citizens travelling inside Manipur along Imphal Moreh road in the name of verification of passport has become an issue to the Narendra Modi govt. ambitious Act East Policy.

In a meeting of Indian delegates and Myanmar delegates held at Tamu DC office of Myanmar, President of the Myanmar India Trade Chamber of Commerce (Tamu- Kalay- Kalewa), U Hla Maung while putting up the issue questioned the Indian delegates on how the good relations between the two countries could be established if legal Myanmar citizen who travel via road are harassed and detained even after showing their passport by the Assam Rifles personnel.

He further stated that when Indian entered Myanmar they were checked at only one point and are let free without any disturbances. But when Myanmar citizen entered India, they are checked at ICP and then at Moreh Gate No.1 by the Assam Rifles. This is not the end, the Myanmar citizen who were already checked at two check post were again checked at Khudengthabi and then at Tengnoupal. While checking, around 2/3 hours are being wasted in the name verification and checking, U Hla Maung said.

“This is not the end, the Indian security harassed the Myanmar citizen by asking them to provide Photostat copy of their passport and other travel documents even as they could have easily completed it by looking at it”, U Hla Maung said and added that if a Myanmar citizen had to provide Photostat copy of every travel documents to all the check point then there is no way that the relationships will grow.
