Manipur Resolves To Adopt Inner Line Permit System

Imphal, Jul 17 : The state assembly on Friday passed a resolution to extend and adopt the Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation 1873, a statute under which the Inner Line Permit System (ILPS) is to be granted, with necessary changes in the point of details to the state, and to urge the Centre to comply with the same.

This came amid a growing public movement demanding enforcement of ILPS. The self-explanatory Joint Committee on ILPS, a conglomerate of several civil bodies of the state, even imposed a 24-hour 'public emergency' that ended on Friday midnight.

The house's resolution followed a private members' business moved by three legislators of the opposition Trinamool Congress led by I Ibohalbi Singh even as widespread demonstration and public rallies demanding implementation of ILPS in Manipur intensified on Friday.
