‘7 Nepali non-Manipur residents registered in Manipur electoral roll’

Imphal: Seven Nepalis, who have not been residing in Manipur, were found enrolled in the electoral roll of Sabungkhong village 8/25 Polling Station of Lamlai Assembly Constituency, claims Lamlai Mapari Thougal Lup, a people organisation.

The organisation pointed out the names of Nepalis enrolled as Acharya Kumari, wife of Ganga Bahadur Acharya; Sita Acharya, daughter of Ganga Bahadur Acharya; Deepak Acharya, son of Ganga Bahadur Acharya; Kumar Acharya, son of Ganga Bahadur Acharya; Rajesh Acharya, son of Ganga Bahadur Acharya; Ganga Bahadur Acharya, son of late Indra Acharya; and his wife Geeta Acharya as enrolled in serial numbers 995 to 1001.

There is no history of Nepali inhabiting at Lamlai. Its very unfortunate to learn the inclusion of Nepali in the electoral roll, Lamlai Mapari Thougal Lup secretary Laishrarn Bobisana told reporters, here on Monday.

It is questionable that if more such people are lined up to add on the electoral roll, he added.

The fresh inclusion of Nepali amid people’s movement to protect the indigenous people of Manipur is a grave concern for Manipur, Bobisana said.

The matter was discussed with JCILPS (Joint Committee on Inner Line Permit System), he added.

He appealed to all concerned to check if the new Nepali names listed in the electoral roll were registered in right way and chalk out where they came from.

There are some who have married Meitei woman and reside as Meitei in Lamlai. It cannot be taken lightly when a group of outsiders reside in the village, Bobisana said.

He urged the people to see if the recent development is brought by political hands.

He cautioned to stop challenging Manipur natives.
