When Chinese troops intrudes to Indian Territory at Arunachal Pradesh at the McMohan line in Upper Siang district in Arunachal Pradesh on December  last year, it took no times for the Indian army to rushed the site and took up all precautionary measures to challenge the Chinese troopers. In 1999 when Pakistani troops intrude Indian territory at Kargil in Jammu and Kashmir, a fierce war occurred losing lives of many soldiers including two from the state of Manipur’s Sajik Tampak neighbouring Myanmar.
India always stand firm to protect its territory and the army is always prepare to face any occupation or intrusion by any neighbouring state to the territory of the country.
But one thing which confuse to the people is that , why the India government remain silent when Myanmar constructed border pillar three kilometre inside the territory of India at Tengnoupal district in Manipur . Even the proposed inspection visit by the state government team was cancelled on intelligence report that Myanmar army have re-enforced at the area where the district administration of the area had officially stated that the border is being constructed 3 kilometer inside the territory of India.  
This is not the first time, earlier too State government reports about the intrusion of Myanmarese troopers inside Indian Territory at Ukhrul district of Manipur along the Indo-Myanmar border and causing collateral damage   at Choro Zingshophai and Aloyo villages on April 18, 2015 does not worry the Narendra Modi led NDA government at the center but they do seriously consider the Myanmar govt. allegations about the constructions by Indians near border pillar number 78 (BP-78), at which the civil society organisations of the state claimed to be Indian territory.
The directives of the Union Ministry of external Affairs to the Manipur state government to clear all sort of constructions and materials piled up near the BP-78 along the Indo-Myanmar border (as reported in this newspaper on April 17 , 2015) was nothing but a clear signs of some agenda to please the Myanmar government in the wake of the counter insurgency operation to eliminate militants who are allegedly taking inside Myanmar’s territories.
Almost all the leaders of the Union government including MoS Home Kiren Rijiju and other Ministers including the BJP President Amit Shah is at Imphal for preparing to fight the upcoming 2019 parliamentary election.
The intrusion by the Myanmar army at Tengnoupal district seems no important for the Indian leader as there is not a single word spells out from any of the Union government authority regarding this matter.
Now everybody knows that Border pillar no. 81 has been reinstate by the Myanmar authority 3 Km inside the Indian territory at Tengnoupal district of Manipur.
There are many other cases of the Myanmar army coming inside the territory of the country and harassed the villagers at border area.
Even after the CSOs had painted cross mark to the border pillar No. 81 the Myanmar army entered the area and painted again . What is more surprising is the silence of the Indian army posted at various areas of border area.
May be it is not Kargil  nor Siang district that they don’t bother.
If the Indian authority mentality reached that state than what is the use of Manipur being proud to be one of the state of the country.
2 jwans from the border area were martyred while Fighting the Pakistani troops. An army Officer of Manipur was among those killed in Sri Lanka fighting for the country, Indian army from the state had been deploying at Indo-Pak border protecting the country. Having known this why the border of India and Mayanmar is left free hand for the Myanmar authority to commit anything that they want.
BJP ‘s most important person is now in the state along with other Union Minister , why should not they visit the disputed site where the Indian claimed intruded by the Myanmar army.
If the BJP National President along with the Union Minister left the state without inspecting what has been going on it would be the most unfortunate for the people of the region.
