Violent attack on non locals will send a negative message, which may backfire. Tiny state Manipur, which is surrounded by hills on all sides must remain purely for Manipuris. There is nothing wrong with the demand to check entry of outsiders to Manipur. However if violent attack is carried out on the premise of protecting our land and people this will derail the fight for protection of Manipuri community. Any kind of killing carried out, be it, by the security personnel or underground elements should be condemned by all sections of the society. State Government will find uphill task in making attempt to protect non locals living in the alleys of Imphal and its outskirt areas. This is going to be an added problem to the already complex situation facing Manipur. Will all these non locals residing here and there be called out and herded at dharmashala or makeshift camp. But they need work and if they do not move out for doing work they will face starvation. Can our Government feed them forever? Manipur continues to face mindboggling problem every now and then. The bomb attack was launched meticulously when all the non locals have arrived in the room. It means a survey had been carried out prior to making the bomb attack perhaps to understand when they get cloistered in the room. It is likely similar attacks may be carried out at the rented house, where non locals are put up. This is revealed by the nature with which the attack was carried out. For fear of being attacked non local milk men did not carry out their duty at some areas of the state capital today. If the calendars also stop their duty who will press “our clothes” a man asked after hearing the news of bomb attack. It is time the state Government does something to solve the problem. We do not see the kind of incidents happening in Manipur in other parts of NE region like Meghalaya, Nagaland and Mizoram. Will the effective implementation of inner line permit system in Manipur check such kind of incidents? When a non local, who does the job of pressing clothes, was asked why they want to work here in spite of stiff of opposition to their prolonged stay by local people of the state, he said weather is good, payment is good so I want to stay here. In their own state they are treated as outcast. But here in Manipur there is no barrier between haves and have-nots. When we return home we are treated like heroes, they say. This is their side of story. There is clash of opinion between locals and non locals. Hence the call for immediate intervention by the Government of Manipur.

Similar Order was also passed in respect of New Mongjang(Khomunnom) village vide objection case No. 8 of 1996.
