IMPHAL, July 30: The Manipur State Council Communist Party of India (MSCCPI) and Lamlong Keithel Apunba Nupi Lup (LKANL) staged sit-in-protests at Irabot Bhavan and Khurai Lamlong Bazar respectively today demanding the implementation of ILP and the release of all who were arrested by the police while demanding the implementation of ILP system in the State.
LKANL general secretary RK Bimola said that people across the State have been demanding the implementation of the ILP system in the State through various forms of agitations but the Chief Minister remains indifferent.
She also asked the government to release those young students and women who were arrested by the police for demanding implementation of ILP immediately without any conditions as the agitation was for the benefit of everyone in the State including the CM and Deputy CM.
Speaking to the media, MSCCPI member Sotinkumar said that there is a real threat to the continuous existence of indigenous people of the State.
During the Lok Sabha elections, however, the manifesto of other political parties didn’t mention the implementation of ILP system in the State except CPI, he added.
Sotinkumar said that his party will take part in any agitation in support of the implementation of ILP system in the State.
