Members of the Bengali community, having permanent residence in almost all the parts of Manipur, have raised strong condemnations against Amra Bangali for filing a public interest litigation at the Supreme Court in demand for quashing the Inner Line Permit System (ILPS) in the state.
Amra Bangali should withdraw the plea immediately, said convenor of Devalaya Committee MK Roy in a press conference held at Manipur Press Club on Saturday.
He said that being a permanent resident of Manipur they extend solidarity with the indigenous people of the state and support the implementation of ‘Inner Line Permit System, 2019’ in the state of Manipur.

He further said that an organisation called Amra Bangali based in Kolkata, West Bengal has recently filed a PIL (Public Interest Litigation) to the Supreme Court of India, challenging the adoption and implementation of Inner Line Permit System in Manipur.
“The committee strongly opposes and condemns such heinous activity of Amra Bangali. It is crystal clear that the said organisation is standing against the will and interest of the indigenous people of Manipur and wants to jeopardise the protection of the entire population of Manipur including the Bengali community,” he said.
Implementation of Inner Line Permit System, 2019 in Manipur is a dream come true for the entire population, and the struggle and pain borne by the JCILPS of Manipur is adorable as they fought tooth and nail to bring the ILPS in the state, he said. “The committee stands shoulder to shoulder and expresses our complete solidarity to the JCILPS of Manipur,” he expressed.
