The indigenous people of Manipur have been fighting for the rights to safeguard the indigenous population, as there is fear among the indigenous population of being swamped by immigrants threatening their ethnic identity due to demographic invasion, said a joint release issued by the six student bodies.

It stated that the indigenous population of the state will be in great threat of extinction if the illegal influx of outsiders from outside states and countries like Myanmar, Bangladesh and Nepal are not scrutinised timely and take up necessary legal action.
