Madam Governor,
I have been privileged to have interacted with two former Governors of Manipur, Shri Ved Marwah and Dr. S. S. Sidhu (both have studied in the same college where I also studied) in New Delhi. Shri Ved Marwah gave me a trophy of being the best cadet, in academic, during my school days at Sainik School Imphal.

Sir,
For more than a month the UNC Blockade is already in operation. This has caused much hardship to both the hills and valley people of Manipur. Further the situation is likely to get out of control any time.

Sir,
The Naga organizations are really hard working and determined unlike other valley organizations. The reported statement of Mr L Shiro, Convenor of committee for Joint Naga Civil Societies, Delhi, (Resolve Blockade issue: Nagas in Delhi, TSE dated 4th Dec) is very interesting.

Sir,
I, as a common citizen, with all due respects would like to draw your kind attention with this public appeal to all section of the population concerning wanton illegal excavation at surrounding hill ranges of our uniquely beautiful Manipur with urgent and special attention at Wakha, Wakha Khunou, Wakha Ayokpa near Naharup Khongjing Leikai, Imphal East Manipur.

Sir,
It is pathetic to see the plight of the common people of our state due to the ongoing UNC sponsored economic blockade. First, it’s my humble plea to the Nagas to immediately stop this unloving method of persecuting the helpless common people on Biblical principle. Second, I would like to appeal to the Sadar Hills District Demand Committee (SHADC) to drop the idea of imposing another or extra burdens to the helpless common people by imposing another economic blockade. Instead, let us all strive to work for the betterment of our own people. Imposing economic blockade brings hardship and pain to all the sections of the people equally.

Sir,
Through your esteemed column I, a tax paying citizen, would like to place a humble request to the electorates (particularly the common masses) of Manipur- BEWARE of the suddenly-out-of-nowhere-appeared demonetised notes of five hundred/one thousand rupees given/distributed among the common electorates in almost every Leikai by (allegedly) the sitting MLAs and other filthily-super rich contractors to be deposited to your (read common electorates) personal/saving accounts.

Sir,
You might be aware that the Economic Blockade imposed by your organization has affected the day-to-day life of the common people in Manipur. We have survived without outside support for the last about two thousand years, but the incessant misrule of the Congress Government in recent years has reduced the State into a condition of total economic dependency.
