  1. Survival of the fittest an adage. Let us forget the abhor among the tribes living in Manipur by converting ST. Then, there will be no discrimination between the hill and the plain people. We are a human being having two legs and two hands with one head. Why still we adhere to separate administration and addled the political heads? Otherwise, there will be a clash between the have and have nots very soon. Aside, neighbouring states are pointing stick to the beehive, while they could not control and manage their state properly. Let us forget faux-pas. We should not welcome a fresh turmoil again in Manipur.
