The fear of losing ancestral land due to migration of “outsiders” from neighbouring countries and north and east Indian States has prompted fresh agitation in the southern district of Manipur.
The recent flare-up is triggered by the passage of the Protection of Manipur Peoples Bill, 2015, and two amendments — one on land and land revenue and the other on shops and establishments.
While the ethnic population was demanding imposition of an Inner Line Permit (ILP), the government hastily introduced and passed the Bills on Monday.
