The Joint Inner Line Permit System (JCILPS) has strongly condemned political party Amra Bangali for requesting the Supreme Court to squash ILP system in Manipur. 

Co-convenor of JCILPS, W Second told media at its office located at Sega Road Takhellambam Leikai, Imphal on Wednesday that JCILPS strongly condemned Amra Bangali for raising a complaint in the Supreme Court on January 3 demanding to squash ILP system, stating that the Act gives hindrance to the Bengali community while entering the state of Manipur.

He said Manipur is a very thinly populated state where the population of indigenous people is becoming vulnerable. To protect and safeguard the indigenous population of Manipur, JCLIPS demanded for implementation of ILP system in Manipur, Second said. 

Second said JCILPS will submit a memorandum to Prime Minister and Home Minister to defend the complaint raised by Amra Bangali. The demand of JCILPS is not anti-community but it is for the safeguard of the indigenous people of Manipur, he added.

JCILPS has been demanding to fulfil 6 (six) points which are to identify who are indigenous people; who are permanent residents; to identify those persons who are settling in the state after 1951; prohibition of selling of land to non-locals under Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation; to start immediate action after forming a population commission as per resolved by state cabinet; to take necessary action under ILP regulation section 20.

Of the total six demands, one of the demands was fulfilled after bringing the demands with DC, Imphal West.

However, JCLIPS failed to respond when media ask about the remaining demands which are yet to be fulfilled. JCILPS had told earlier that they will start intensified agitation in order to fulfil the remaining demands in the first week of January.
