Reaching out to the hills. Taking on board the Naga People’s Front in the Government. Inking a deal with the Churachandpur JAC and convincing them to claim the bodies of the eight people killed in the protest against the three Bills passed by the State Assembly on August 31, 2015.

The Government should take note of the missive from the Deputy Commissioner of Kangpokpi. Or else Manipur will see yet another spell of her lifeline being cut off, this time not by any CSO but from the failure to heed the warning alert sounded by its m…
In urging doctors to treat people with a human touch, Chief Minister N Biren was literally underlining the point that haughtiness and impoliteness should have no place on a doctor’s profile.

It is on record. The 2010 decision to sever all political ties with the Government of Manipur still stands. Not that this will alter the approach of the BJP led Government to the issues besieging the hill districts of Manipur, but it is still interesti…
No strong enough words to condemn the dastardly killing of two young men at Ukhrul allegedly by cadres of the NSCN (IM) and don’t be surprised if the case dies a natural death.

The barely three months old BJP led coalition Government seems to be right on track and it has to be admitted that the recently held Shirui Lily Festival, Barak Festival, Hill People’s Day held on the 10th of every month and the Meeyamgi Numit held on the 15th of every month have gone down well with the people. One just hopes that throwing its door open to the common people does not end as an exercise in populism but ensures something good and concrete for the people, otherwise opening its door to the people will mean nothing.

Created on December 8, 2016. All will obviously remember the bad days that followed the announcement of the then Congress Government here to create seven new districts which the United Naga Council dubbed as ‘anti-Naga’ and clamped the four months long economic blockade literally crippling the life of the public, particularly the people of the […]

The choices are immense and obviously good for the young students. However like everything else, nothing should be taken at face value and it is here that parents, guardians, elders of the family and yes the young students themselves need to be very, v…
Defeating the spirit and essence of the 10th Schedule of the Constitution of India. The BJP led Government here is certainly going great guns, particularly in reaching out to the hills, but a look at its composition should give food for thought to everyone. The BJP did the right thing in going along with the Naga People’s Front and in reaching out to the other political parties such as the NPP, but its honeymoon with some rogue Congress MLAs certainly goes against the very spirit and essence of the strict anti-defection Bill passed and later enacted during the first NDA term under the stewardship of Atal Behari Vajpayee. It is rather late in the day but nevertheless this should give some food for thought to all the readers and the keen political observers in the State.

Mob uprising. The other term mob justice is a sort of a misnomer, for there is nothing that remotely resembles justice when a mob takes the law into its own hand and lynches someone or destroys the properties of a suspect.

Beef ban or the ban on the sale of cattle to slaughter houses, PMUY to be launched on June 5 in the State, the decision of the State Government to enact a new law to ban bandh and blockade, the Naga Tribes Council (NTC) urging the Centre to spell out the details of the Framework Agreement to the Nagas of Nagaland, the brutal murder of a mother and her daughter at Uripok Bachaspati Leikai and obviously the incessant rain that hit the State in the last few days and caused floods and in the process swept away some bridges, were all the prominent news that hit the daily newspapers in Manipur in the last 48 hours.

Technically the BJP may not yet have gone to the extent of banning beef consumption but in effect it has taken the first step towards this end. How else does one explain the move of the BJP led Central Government to ban the sale of cattle to the slaugh…
There must be a reason why the Framework Agreement inked between the Centre and the NSCN (IM) is such a highly kept secret. The BJP, notably Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP National president Amit Shah, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Centre’s Interlocutor to the peace talk RN Ravi have all maintained that the Framework Agreement does not contain anything inimical to the interest of the neighbouring States, particularly Manipur, but the question of greater importance is whether the assurances can be taken at face value.

No doubt about this. The Directorate of Information and Public Relations (DIPR) has changed for the better and one reason for this possibly could be the decision of the then Congress Government to make this department strictly professional.
