AJYCP to demand ILP for State

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Dec 14 - Asserting that its four-decade-long demand for Inner Line Permit (ILP) in the State has been validated by the Union government�s adamant imposition of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA), the Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chatra Parishad (AJYCP) today stated that the momentum of its protest will continue with more stress on ILP for Assam.

Addressing the media here, AJYCP general secretary Palash Changmai said that the Parishad raised the demand for ILP in Assam way back in March 1978 and has been demanding the same continuously for protecting the indigenous population.

�The threat to the indigenous population due to the changing population pattern was deciphered long back by the Parishad. Both external aggression and unrestrained internal migration are dangerous for the supremacy of the indigenous people in Assam. The provision for ILP was chalked out for Manipur after the anti-CAB movement, whereas Assam still has been left alone to bear the burden of illegal migrants,� said Changmai.

The Parishad would carry on the movement with a new slogan �No CAA, yes ILP�.

The youth body members said the ILP was a more practical immediate step in the present scenario because it does not require any Constitutional amendment.

�An offshoot of the Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulations, 1873, the provision of ILP will ensure procuring obligatory travel documents for people travelling to ILP-protected areas for a limited period. Through this, we can also document and keep track of people entering the State, apart from their duration of stay,� the AJYCP leader said.

The Parishad also asserted that the ILP can be implemented across the State without affecting rail and air connectivity in the State with advanced technology at hand.

As part of its next course of action, the AJYCP has decided to stage a 36-hour hunger strike from December 16 and public meetings in rural pockets of the State from December 18 to create awareness about the controversial legislation. The youth body members today staged sit-in demonstrations in different parts of the State.
