IMPHAL, Nov 28 � Manipur People�s Party (MPP), a regional political party has sent a missive to Union Law and Justice Minister M Veerappa Moily, seeking establishment of a separate High Court for State in consonance with the national policy of delivering justice at the doorstep.
The missive signed by MPP president Dr Nimai Chand Luwang said that despite the provision under the Constitution for the institution of High Court for each State, no separate High Court has been established for Manipur. The cost of seeking justice for the people of Manipur in going to Guwahati is very high besides being inconvenient and difficult, it further said. The MPP said that Manipur with its pending cases and adequate infrastructure deserves consideration on a priority basis in the North East.
