As announced earlier by the Joint Committee on Inner Line Permit System (JCILPS), the torch rallies were planned as part of the ongoing mass movement aimed at securing President’s assent to the three Bills passed by the Manipur Legislative Assembly on August 31 last year in order to protect all the indigenous people of Manipur from the onslaught of incessant influx. The JCILPS has been demanding establishment of population commission and land reforms commission as agreed between the committee and the State Government last year.
