Correspondent IMPHAL, Dec 13 | Publish Date: 12/13/2019 1:10:51 PM IST

BJP national general secretary Ram Madhav was officially the first person from outside the state visiting Manipur to obtain inner line permit for entry into the state.

Madhav arrived here in Imphal on Friday to attend a function organised by the women vendors of Ima Keithel (all-women market) in Imphal to felicitate the ruling BJP leader along with state chief minister N Biren Singh.

The BJP general secretary was permitted to stay in the state for seven days from December 13 to 19, 2019.

State home department issued the ILP under the provisions of Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation 1873 read with The Adaptation of Laws (Amendment) Order, 2019.

Inner Line Permit (ILP) regime was extended in Manipur with effect from December 11 with President of India Ram Nath Kovind signing the order in this effect.

Attending the felicitation function, the BJP general secretary claimed that Narendra Modi government at the Centre always heard the voice of the people of the state and will continue to do so in future too.

The long pending demand of the people has been offered as gift by the Modi government. People of the state should praise the Prime Minister, he stated.

He urged the people to give the credit of the achievements to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union home minister Amit Shah.

The BJP leader said the Modi government always opens its  door wide for bringing insurgent groups of the state to the negotiating table. Insurgent group may come out openly and relay what they want from the Centre through chief minister N Biren Singh, he said.

He added that Delhi leaders would like to hold peace dialogue with the insurgent groups for peace in the region.

Regarding anti-CAB violent agitation in Assam and other places of the region, he alleged that it was due to misinformation spread by opposition leaders who wanted to disturb peace in the region. They were doing this for political mileage and for their vested interest, he went on to allege.

Madhav claimed that CAB is a humanitarian legislation to give a new lease of life to people who were persecuted because of their religion background.

People with their original link with northeast region of the country like the Meeiteis settling in Bangladesh were also among the persecuted people. 

Was there any reason for not giving them shelter in the country by granting citizenship? They need legal protection and CAB is meant for this purposed, he justified.

Chief minister N Biren Singh asserted that to protect the state and interest of its people was the bounden duty of the government.

“Now, the government at Delhi has fulfilled our long pending demand. We must show our gratitude to them. If we do not praise them (Central leaders), they will not think us as human being,” he said.

Singh said that he never believed that Centre will bring Manipur under ILP regime. To him, the moment Centre announced for bringing the state under ILP regime was a dream that come true.

Claiming that almost all the major issues of the state has been resolved by the Centre, pending only the Naga peace talks, the chief minister appealed the people to concentrate on development of the state.

The chief minister hoped that Centre will not hurt the interests of people of the state while resolving the Naga political issue.

The felicitation function held on the street on the side of the iconic all-women market complex was attended a good number of women vendors besides some ministers, MLAs of the ruling parties.
