IMPHAL: Endorsing the demand for Inner Line Permit (ILP) system implementation in Manipur, Khwairamband Keithel Apunba Inasing (womenfolk of Khwairamband keithel) has abstained from attending market for a day and organized a sit-in-protest at the three markets of Khwairamband in the heart of Imphal including a temporary market shed at on Sunday.

The protest was part of showing solidarity to the sit-in-protest held on Sunday at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi by a 12 member team comprising representatives of the Joint Committee on ILP System, different political parties of the state, five student organizations along with Manipur Students’ Association of Delhi (MSAD).

Speaking to the media during the protest, spokesperson Radhesana Devi said that after abolition of the Permit system on November 18, 1950 influx rate of migrants into the state increased tremendously and reached an alarming proportion where almost all spaces for the locals were occupied by outsiders.

There is compelling need to implement the ILP as 60 MLAs of the state are unanimous in their decision to adopt the system and wondered as to why Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde was reluctant to do so, she said.

The movement is to save the future generation of indigenous people from being lost which makes it essential and reasonable to support the initiative of the joint committee.

Therefore, her organization would support any move and strategy undertaken in regard to such venture, she said. (NNN)
