Arrested members released, JCILPS to hold talk with govt today


IMPHAL, September 18: Preliminary talks with the State on the implementation of the Inner Line Permit System in the State will be conducted tomorrow at 2pm, said JCILPS co-convenor Ibotombi Khuman today.

A team of 12 members of the JCILPS will meet government representatives tomorrow at 2 following an official invitation from the Chief Minister for discussion on the ILPS.

There will be a series of talks on the issue, he said.

This comes after the unconditional release of 47 members arrested by the State police in connection with the ILPS movement, he said.

The members were today formally welcomed at the Manipur Press Club, late in the evening around 7.

He said the talk between the JCILPS and the government has been delayed due to an action of additional SP Victoria.

JCILPS student wing convenor, Angamba who was amongst those released today said they were brutally tortured by additional SP Victoria.

He alleged that it is unfortunate that the State government has failed to understand the students’ sentiments.

Meanwhile, the JCILPS co-convenor lamented that no-local students of NIT were assaulted at its Langol campus.

The incident was unfortunate and it was not related to the ILPS in any manner, he said.

The incident, however, could have tarnished the movement, he said.
