Manipur Democratic Alliance (MDA), an alliance of 11 political parties including the ruling BJP and its partners on Tuesday, demanded early assent to the Manipur People’s Bill 2018.

A delegation of the alliance on Tuesday met the state Governor Najma Heptulla and submitted a memorandum drawing her attention to give assent to the Manipur People’s Bill 2018, the Bill which is pending for President’s assent.
Even as Manipur Assembly passed the Bill to protect of people of Manipur by regulating the entry into and exit from Manipur for non-Manipur people in July 2018, the Bill was yet to get the necessary assent from the President for enacting as an Act.The Bill is pending with the Rastrapati Bhavan, reportedly awaiting recommendation from the Union home ministry.
Talking to reporter after the meeting with the governor, MDA convenor M Tombi Singh said that the delegation of 11 political parties have submitted a memorandum to the Governor, pressing her to take up the matter with the President.
Claiming that it was the start of the campaign for the MDA, the convenor said that a delegation alliance will be leaving for New Delhi soon to meet the President and ask him to give his assent to the Bill.
He said that conversion of the Bill into an Act was a must for the protection of the indigenous people of the state who have no Constitutional protection at all.
Tombi added that the alliance will continue to work together in the interest of the indigenous people, leaving behind ideology differences of each party.
MDA is an alliance of 11 political parties including BJP and its allies in the present coalition government in the state which was formed in the wake of widespread mass agitations against passing of Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2016.
The alliance had claimed that the CAB was not tabled in the recently concluded Rajya Sabha session after Central leaders of the ruling BJP were convinced by a delegation of the alliance led by chief minister N Biren Singh.
