There is a festive atmosphere after the announcement of the inner line permit system in Manipur. Public holiday has been announced today in entire Manipur. The announcement was made after the announcement by Union Home Minister Amit Shah.
Amit Shah said in Lok Sabha that the Inner Line Permit System will be implemented in Manipur before the Citizenship Amendment Bill comes into force. Currently, this permit is applicable in areas bordering international borders with Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram and Nagaland.
Whereas Manipur is celebrating happiness, the citizenship amendment bill is being fiercely opposed in Assam and Tripura and other northeastern states. All organizations in Assam and Tripura have called for a shutdown.
Several tribal groups, including the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ally Indigenous People’s Front of Tripura (IPFT), organized a shutdown on Monday against the Citizenship Amendment Bill, which led to the Tripura Tribal Area Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) areas Life was affected.
Because of this, road and rail traffic in Tripura was severely affected and thousands of passengers were stranded in the way, as the pro-bandh workers stopped vehicles and trains moving between Tripura and the rest of the country. Police said that no major untoward incident has been reported from anywhere in TTAADC areas.
More than 12 lakh people live in this area, occupying two-thirds of the area of 10,491 square kilometers, mostly tribals. A large number of forces, including the Central Paramilitary Forces and the Tripura State Rifles (TSR), have been deployed to deal with any untoward situation.
Police have arrested some people for blocking the single rail line and highway connecting Tripura with the rest of the country via Assam. Due to the bandh, the examinations of both the universities of Tripura University (Central University) and Maharaja Bir Bikram University (under the Tripura government) were canceled.
