The manner and method by which the three Bills were conceived, drafted, introduced and passed in the Special Session of the state assembly on 31 August was against all the established norms of democratic process and procedure as the bills were never kept in the domain of the public for comments nor were comments solicited from the public before it was introduced and passed. This was stated in a press statement of Zomi Human Rights Foundation, Lamka. Terming the actions of the state government as secretive and hasty, the release questions the failure by the concern authorities to put the National Registration of Citizen, 1951, the census report of 1951 and the Village Directory 1951 in the public domain for the public to corroborate till today. The release further condemned the inhuman and excessive use of force by the security forces as an excuse for controlling the unarmed mass leading to the death of nine protestors and injuries to many more. Reflecting on the urgent need of the government to assuage the fear and anxiety of the hill people and to prove the veracity of their claim of the bills not infringing on the rights and interests of the hill people, the statement also portrays the collective feeling of betrayal by the hill people who have contributed to the cultural and traditional identity of the state from time immemorial. The foundation expressed sympathy and condolence to the families of the bereaved and to adhere to positive, productive protests while demanding the creation of a separate administrative setup for the indigenous hill tribal people of Manipur away from the present setup.

In another development, unconfirmed report said that Ginsuanhau Zou, MLA of Singngat AC has tendered his resignation letter to the speaker of the state Legislative Assembly.
