Imphal: The Joint Committee on Inner Line Permit System (JCILPS) of Manipur is up in arms in the wake of the detection of at least 23 migrant workers in the state without Inner Line Permit (ILP). An order issued by the state government on March 18 suspended issuance of ILP. Accordingly JCILPS has demanded of the state government to clarify the development as to how such migrant workers and outsiders could enter then state and bring to bring to book all officials and others who were involved in violating the rules.
According to JCILPS convenor YK Dhiren, reports were received of migrant workers and outsiders staying in quarantine facilities in the state. He also questioned the government as to hoe migrant workers and outsiders sans ILP could walk out of the Bir Tikendrajit International Airport into the open.
