It further said the area was sold by Penakhonba Khumon and Khulakpa (plaintiff) at Rs 13 through the then SI Duncan in January 20, 1928 after years of fighting the case in the State Durbar.

Earlier known as ‘Thatching & cutting grass’ reserve area, the transfer order of the land was referred to in line no. 9 as ‘Misc. Case No. 434 of 1927-28, which reads: “…..The pltfs. in the present case have sold a certain amount of the thatching reserve to one Leitanthem Jane Singh of Kundruk for Rs 13/- sine then …thatching reserved has passed through a number of different hands…),” said the statement.

 It noted that Rs 13 which the two villages had paid to the State Durbar was not a meagre amount and the State government must make a clear decision on the issue. As per this document, the statement said, the two villages of Senjam Khunou and Senjam Chirang have the sole ownership right over the land. The two villages believed that the state government might have taken the decision after going through all the documents.

Stating that villagers of the two villages wouldn’t have claimed the land ownership of the construction site if there was no document and as such, the statement said that the order of the State Durbar has clearly mentioned the ownership of the land according to the book ‘The Manipur Code Part II’ 1963 by RC Deo Sharma.

Given these facts, the State government cannot compromise on the land ownership and no one has not right to claim over it, it further warned.
