If center is aware of what is going on in Manipuri what action it had taken to stop the blockade. We all know center had some understanding with NSCN(IM) and how Manipuris can trust this BJP government. I doubt the intention of Rijiju, he is playing some games as election is approaching. During June 18 uprising BJP was wiped our from Manipur. Who knows it be repeated again this time.
