IMPHAL, July 19: We cannot stray outside of the Indian Constitution and stay within the constitutional limit while implementing any legislation like the Inner Line Permit System, Sagolband MLA RK Imo said while inaugurating a market shed at Sagolband Meino Leirak Machin.
He said the government has already withdrawn the Manipur Regulation of VIstors, Tenants and Migrant Workers Bill, 2015 following pressures from the public.
We need to be aware of the sensitive nature of the issue of implementing something like the ILPS, and any new bill introduced should be within the ambit of the Constitution or else we cannot get assent of the Governor or the President, he said.
All stakeholders should be very careful in preparing the bill, he continued.
He further appealed to the JCILPS, JAC formed in connection to the death of student Sapam Robinhood to remain calm during the timeline provided by the government for the preparation of the bill.
All stakeholders are also appealed to give valuable suggestions to the government for the preparation, Imo continued.
The time has come for all 57 MLAs to join hands and put away all political differences, he further appealed.
The market shed inaugurated today was constructed by the Young Pillars Union Club under the Local Area Development Fund and could be used as a market shed, bus waiting shed and various other purposes.
Local elders also shared the dais with the MLA.
