The third edition of a book on ILP system named ‘Kangleipak da ILP system amadi Ehou’ was released today at Hotel Classic, North AOC, organised by Siroi Lily Global Family, which is also the publisher of the book.

Author Jadumani speaking on the occasion opined that the ‘failed’ movement of demanding ILPS in the state may be the fragmentation and disunity among civil voluntary organisations. Civil bodies of the state seems united in the outside but stand divided in the inside, he stated.   

Tripura was once a princely state and after the merger to the Indian government, Tripuris became minority in their own land with only a margin of 20 percent of population. “We may become the victim later like the Tripuris, so we better wake up and protect our own land from the hands of the outsiders before it is too late,” he said. 

The book is written by president of Indigenous Peoples Association of Kangleipak (IPAK), Sapamcha Jadumani.

Rajkumari Sanatampha in describing the book said that this is the third edition of the book, with its first edition in 2008 and the second in 2011, respectively. She said that important issues surrounding ILPS are included in the book. 

The book was released by director of art and culture, K. Sushila as chief guest, state secretary of Communist Party of India, M. Nara Singh and member of Siroi Lily Global family, Laishram as president of the releasing function.
