The Joint Inner Line Permit System (JCILPS) students’ wing along with 6 (Six) student bodies on Friday torched the effigy of Bakul Chandra Roy, secretary of Amra Bangali in front of Kangla Western Gate for filing a complaint at the Supreme Court demanding to squash the ILP regulation from Manipur.

While carrying out the protest in front of Kangla Western gate, police personnel tried to control the agitators and, in the process, detained 5 (Five) JCILPS volunteers. They have been identified as Maibam Julesh, co-convenor, JCILPS students’ wing; Leishangkhong Fajal; volunteers of the students’ wing, Harley Laishram, Salam Fernandesh and Mujahid Makakmayum.

Convenor of JCILPS students’ wing Haobijam Chalamba Meitei told reporters at the office of JCILPS located at Sega Road Takhellambam Leikai, Imphal West that the JCILPS and its students’ wing strongly condemned ‘Amra Bangali’ (a political party) for filing a complaint at Supreme Court demanding to squash the ILP regulation from Manipur.

He said while the JCILPS, along with other civil organisations and with the support from public, have been demanding the implementation of the ILP system in Manipur by adding different provisions for the safeguard of indigenous people of Manipur. During the movement one student was also killed while carrying out agitation, he added.

The complaint filed by Amra Bangali must be withdrawn immediately as implementation of ILP system is not against any community but for the safeguard of the indigenous people of the state, he added.

He said the JCILPS students’ wing volunteers, who were detained by the police personnel, must be released immediately unconditionally. Intensified agitation will follow if the police personnel fail to release the volunteers immediately, Haobijam Chalamba Meitei said.

He appealed to the politicians not to use ILP in order to get political mileage.
