An all-party delegation led by Manipur Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh Tuesday met Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh to stress on the need of a Presidential assent for three Bills pertaining to the Inner Line Permit (ILP) system. The Bills have been opposed by tribal groups in Manipur.

The 18-member delegation included representatives from BJP, LJD, JD(U), CPM and other parties.

The Congress government in Manipur had last August passed Protection of Manipur People Bill, Manipur Land Revenue and Land Reforms (Seventh Amendment) Bill and Manipur Shops and Establishments (Second Amendment) Bill aimed at protecting indigenous people inhabiting the state’s valley districts.

The ILP system entails a special permit for entering certain restricted areas in the country. The Bills were passed after months of a mass movement to protect indigenous residents.
