IMPHAL, November 8: The All Political Party Committee constituted to look into the demand for the implementation of Inner Line Permit System in Manipur has prepared a preliminary draft of its recommendations to be submitted to the government of Manipur, said deputy Chief Minister, Gaikhangam today.
He was speaking to media persons on the sidelines of the Tribal Language Day function held today at the Tribal Research Institute.
Gaikhangam said he can understand the urgency of the JCILPS in demanding the implementation of the system and setting November 18 as deadline for the government.
He maintained that the demand is genuine, however we cannot implement the ILPS in a haste, and we need to delve into the matter carefully so that there should not be any loophole.
He continued that the committee had already instructed the resident commissioners of Manipur Bhawans in the different States to collect draft copies of land laws from States like Himachal Pradesh and Meghalaya.
