IMPHAL, July 12 - Manipur Government has decided to convene a special session of the State Assembly �shortly� to discuss the issue of Inner Line Permit System (ILPS) to regulate influx of outsiders in the volatile border State.

The government decision came amidst the widespread public protests demanding the implementation of ILPS in the State, by defying the curfew which was imposed on Wednesday after a student was allegedly killed in police action to control a protest march in Imphal.

�The State Government has also decided to withdraw the Manipur Regulation of Visitors, Tenants & Migrant Workers (MRVTMW) Bill, 2015 which was passed by the Assembly on March 16 last for which the special sitting is being convened,� said N Ashok Kumar, Secretary to CM, in a press release on Sunday.

Sources here said the State Government�s decision came after an hour-long Congress Legislature Party meeting with Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh in the chair today. The meeting was held soon after Ibobi returned here from Guwahati where he attended a security review meeting of CMs of the Northeastern States with Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

Speaking to media persons after the CLP meet, Ibobi said that the date for the special session of the Assembly will be discussed in a State Cabinet meeting tomorrow.

Manipur has been witnessing widespread agitations under the initiative of the Joint Committee on ILPS, since the last few days, demanding replacement of MRVTMW Bill, 2015 to protect the interests of the indigenous people and regulate influx of outsiders. The agitation continues as the government is yet to hold talks with the Joint Committee.

Meanwhile, thousands of people, living under curfew since Wednesday, came out when the curfew was relaxed for seven hours till 12 noon on Sunday.

Sit-ins by womenfolks in their mourning attires and protests by youths were staged at several places in Imphal defying the curfew today. But the police prevented them from continuing.
