‘Migrant workers’ pulled down from buses in Imphal, sent back

IMPHAL: Altogether 21 ‘migrant workers’ were pushed back from the state on Friday after they were pulled down from passenger buses by volunteers of Joint Committee on Inner Line Permit System (JCILPS) that is launching a campaign for introduction of Inner Line Permit (ILP) or a similar law in Manipur.

The move comes a day after the JCILPS announced to ban entry of non-locals into Manipur and boycott visit by Union ministers to the poll-bound state from today, September 23.

The ban is in protest against the inability of the state government to pass an ILP related bill in the assembly by September 21, a deadline set by the Joint Committee.
