Govt given deadline to implement ILP in Manipur
Imphal: A citizens` committee today threatened to implement the Inner Line Permit (ILP) system on its own if the Centre and Manipur government failed to implement it by November 18.
The committee had already informed the Centre and state government to implement the ILP system in the state in view of increasing influx of both people from outside and illegal migrants, a spokesman of the Joint Committee on Inner Line Permit System (JCILPS) said.
Noting the state government has already passed a resolution in this regard two months ago, he said, Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde has not taken any action on it.
The spokesman said the ILP was in force in neighbouring Nagaland and Mizoram and there was no question of it being unconstitutional.
He said JCILPS would implement the system on its own in the state if it was not implemented by the government by November 18 as the people coming from outside the state for work had outnumbered its total tribal population.
