  1. I do not understand why at this time; why not pick up another time. It is not the need of the hour. There are many a things that need to be cleaned up first. Encroachment of land and influx of illegal migrants and threat to the local and indigenous populace by the outsiders are the things that need to be taken up first and then work on the peace, tranquility and co-existence of the indigenous people ( meitei, kuki, naga, pangal etc.). Then you can go for your demand for the full fledge district.
