By Correspondent

IMPHAL, May 16 - Churachandpur-based Joint Action Committee (JAC) against Anti-Tribal Bills has called a 48- hour total shutdown in all tribal territories of the State starting from midnight of May 16.

The shutdown was called in protest against the alleged indifferent attitude of the Manipur Government and its alleged brash and contemptuous conduct towards the tribal people, according to a JAC statement.

The said Bills are Protection of Manipur Peoples Bill, Manipur Land Revenue & Land Reforms (7th Amendment) Bill and Manipur Shops and Establishment (MS&E) (2nd Amendment) Bill.

On May 9, an all political parties meeting in Imphal resolved to depute a delegation led by State Chief Minister to urge the Centre to give assent to the three pending Bills passed by Manipur Assembly on August 31 last year.

Meanwhile, the public movement for the implementation of Inner Line Permit (ILP) system in the State continues with blockades and sit-ins being observed on Monday.
