Manipur Government to Conduct Door-to-Door Survey to Trace Illegal Migrants: CM


Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh on Sunday described sheltering illegal migrants as the “biggest threat” to the state and announced that a “house-to-house survey” would be conducted soon to identify such people.

Expressing serious concern over the influx of illegal migrants from Bangladesh and Myanmar, Singh told reporters that steps would be taken against the locals who are allowing such foreigners to stay in their homes on rent.

“In total, 613 people have been arrested for violating Inner Line Permit (ILP) norms in the last four-five days,” the chief minister said.

ILP is an official document issued by the government that allows a person to travel for a limited period. ILP came into force in 2021 in the northeastern state.

He said identification of illegal immigrants has become a major problem.

“House to house survey will be conducted to trace illegal immigrants. Appropriate action will be taken against any landlord who gives shelter to illegal immigrants at his house,” the chief minister said.
