We need a new land reform act for the valley area otherwise Meiteis will become minority community in their own soil. Stop considering Meiteis to be the major community. No community regard this community as their guardian. It is high time to take up steps to protect this community from exploitation by other communities. Meiteis are the most divided people in this tiny state.There are so many organisations, all of them go for their own interests. Every one considers “I am the best”. Stop doing business with guns in hand. We don’t want you to rule this state. Why do you remain silence at this juncture? If you are fighting for cause of your people, do something to bring a long lasting solution. Do you think that you will not gain anything to do so? What are you doing? Why do you extort money from the people?

Meetei/meitei, Kuki, Naga,Muslim, Sikh, Nepali etc on this soil are same and one. I be keep at second and first our country/state is most important. If we remember forgive and forgiveness is the best policy, then there is no word like war, battle, quarel etc. So I sincerely appeal to all citizen of Manipur to live together. Maintain peace and respect other

Why UNC/NSCN (IM) still continue to call economic blockade in Manipur is the main cause of communal flare up. Women anger against the elite communal political front members at imphal and church organization is natural instinct. Let us boycott such people to the strongest term.
