ATSUM forwards open memo to CM on ILP issue

KANGPOKPI: Deeply concerned with the grave tension prevailing in the State, All Tribal Students’ Union Manipur (ATSUM) on Tuesday submitted open memorandum to the Chief Minister of Manipur O Ibobi demanding to effectively address the grievances of the JCILPS and maintains public tranquility and return to normalcy. ATSUM urged the State Government to extend the existing ILPS Act to stop further entry of non-natives/non-locals.

The tribal student body demanded the State government should form a fully represented committee to examine the demographic impact of existing non-natives/non-locals in the state. As this exercise would take time, the involvement of local public in the form of agitation would paralyze for months and years which would have serious adverse impact on the state socially and economically, the open memorandum of ATSUM said. Hill Area Committee would have to be involved if the tribal areas are covered, added the memorandum.
