IMPHAL, July 31: Agitations demanding action against the police personnel involved in the death of Sapam Robinhood and introduction of the Inner Line Permit System or a similar legislation in the State continued at several places in the State today.
Protestors braved the incessant rain which has been non-stop since morning to come out to the streets and stage sit in protest supporting the movement.
Sit in protests were held at Pishumthong Oinal Leikai organised by the local meira paibi lup at the Pishumthong Waiting Shed.
Speaking to media persons, Memcha member of the POLMP demanded the government to acknowledge the interest of the people and fulfill their demand at the earliest.
Instead of going forward towards prosperity, the State seems to be going backward and through a lot of hardships, she said.
The students are losing their valuable time and those surviving and feeding their families through their daily wages have been hit hard by the government`™s lack of concern for the people, she added.
The present turmoil in the State could have been prevented only if the government was concern with the welfare of the people, she continued.
Memcha also demanded that the police personnel involved in the death of class XI student Sapam Robinhood should be punished at the earliest.
She continued the Pishumthong Oinam Leikai Meira Paibi Leikai will also support the JCILPS until the demand for introduction of the ILPS or a similar legislation is fulfilled.
Womenfolk of Khobghampat Awang Leikai, Khongampat Mantri Leikai, Khongampat Mayai Leikai also staged a sit in protest in their locality today.
Similar sit-ins were also witnessed at Singjamei, Uripok, Khurai, Kakwa among other places.
Placards demanding implementation of the ILPS and action against the police personnel involved in the death of class XI student Sapam Robinhood were also exhibited during the demonstrations.
Meanwhile, the Imphal East United Clubs`™ Organisation has demanded the Congress government to bring a proper solution to the present demand for the introduction of the Inner Line Permit System or a similar legislation in the State.
It stated any delay in finding a solution to the issue would only add fuel to the anger among the public which would result in more uprisings in the State.
It urged the government to prepare the draft of a bill and at the earliest and discuss it with the people.
The organisation further pointed out that the government employees of the State have failed to come out and support the ongoing movement till date.
It further appealed to the employees to join in the movement.
