Movement for inner line permit system in Manipur: A threat to communal harmony
Since attainment of statehood, influx of peoples from other states continuous in Manipur till today. The incessant influx of traders and labourers from other states of India has created fear among the indigenous people. For fear of possible threat to the demography and economy of the state as once in Tripura, valley dwellers of the Manipur have started demanding implementation of ILP in the state since 1980. ILP movement reached its highest peak in 2015, resulted in the passing of three Bills i.e. The Protection of Manipur People Bill, 2015, The Manipur Land Revenue and Land Reforms (Seventh Amendment) Bill, 2015 and Manipur Shops and Establishments (Second Amendment) Bill, 2015 in the State Legislative Assembly on 31st August 2015. ILP movement has posed a great challenge to communal peace and harmony among indigenous people of the state.
