The central government has started these kinds of schemes for the upliftment of the tribal students who want to avail higher education at recognized institutions within India but these tribal students from Manipur are struggling to get what they are entitled to. This is a very crucial time for the students as the exams are going on but instead of shaping up their future they are busy drafting letters and knocking government doors with a hope to get their scholarships and subsequently an entry to the examination hall.
Students are now approaching the Chief Minster for help otherwise they are left with no other option to take extreme step with their lives.
