Manipur Congress Friday stayed way from a one-day political conference on the implementation of Inner Line Permit (ILP) system in Manipur held at Khuman Lampak State Youth Centre, Imphal. The centre has reportedly rejected a proposal of the state government.

The conference was organized by joint committee on ILP System, Kangleipak as part of its campaign for re-introduction of the system in the state within November 18 next, the deadline set by the committee formed under aegis of the Federation of Regional Indigenous Societies (FRIENDS) to press the state government for implementation of the system in the state.

Speaking at the conference, joint committee convener, Kangleipak, Sapamcha Jadumani insisted that the centre should amend the Indian constitution to enable implementation of ILP considering that the indigenous people of the state would soon become a minority in their own state soon if action is not taken at the earliest check the influx of the migrants.

Speakers came down heavily on the reported statement of the union state minister for home’s regarding centre’s decision, terming it as an “unfortunate one”, asserting that centre’s decision casts a serious reflection on the image of the Manipur legislative assembly.

Apart from the question of the “constitutionality or merits” of the resolution, they attacked the authority and dignity of the house and the parliamentary practice and procedure followed by the legislative bodies of India and suggested that MPs representing the state should take the issue to floor of the parliament.

They also condemned the Congress party for not sending its representatives in the conference. After a thorough deliberation on the observations made by political leaders, the conference endorsed the stand of the committee to press the centre to extent Eastern Bengal Frontier Regulation, 1873 in Manipur.
Leaders of almost all the political parties took part in the conference.
