  1. I wonder what is the need of triparte talks afterall its internal issue of Manipur and whats the need of central govt. Our state govt. Should take a firm dicision and its decision should be the final. No compromise on integrity of Manipur if needed legal action should proceed. Is blockade on National highway legal? Dont be timid and for god shake enough is enough one should govt. Bow…take a firm stand now for a better future..

  2. Why BJP government is so weak…….why tripartite is needed,Government must used their power to send off NSCN first from the state,even All Thangkhul Naga are just a public don’t let them to sit on Government head and pulled yours ears.Why Thangkhul NAGA does not asked their leader and it associates that where is development money,from States they had taken from Government development funds.Looked those Hilly regions MLA, Minister and other leaders or who try to be leaders, looked at their family how are they living and enjoying with your development funds,how their son ,daughter and wife’s How they are living like a king,queen,prince and princess.And Every Development funds in hilly regions why You are paying taxes to NSCN Till Now ………Every single elders public and youths knows……Everything is the game throne.
