As entitlement of the Manipuris, Rs 10 crores are given annually from the MP local area development fund for the 60 Assembly Segments of Manipur.

On the other hand for Manipur for 2 MPís Rs 50 crores are received. Let the Public discuss whether a state for which the outlay is Rs 250 crores and another for which the outlay is Rs 50 crores will develop.

In Tripura there are 60 Assembly Segments the area of Tripura is 10,499.69 sq.km the territorial area of Manipur is 22,327 sq.km comparing with Manipur, the area of Tripura is not even half the territorial area of Manipur but it has 2 MPs in the Lok Sabha and 1 MP in the Rajya Sabha which is the same with Manipur.

The geographical area of Manipur is 8000 sq.miles and the geographical area of Kabow Valley is 7000sq.miles.

After Manipur was merged into the Indian Union of October 15, 1949, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru representing the Government of India, as the first gift of Manipur, Kabow Valley was given to Myanmar (Burma) permanently.

After Kabow Valley was given away the geographical area of Manipur as 22,356 sq.km is included in the 1988 international year Book. However, in between Rajiv Gandhi and VP Singh of National Front Government by giving 29 sq.km to Myanmar (Burma) as second gift, the present total geographical area of Manipur is 22,327 sq.km.

As the third gift of the Government of India, Atal Bihari Vajpai Jee led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) Governments LK Advani and AB Vajpaijee conspiredto extend cease fire without territorial limit under Bangkok Declaration in 2001 make arrangements to give away Naga habited area of Manipur to Nagaland.

It is a known fact that the NDA government carried out Unttaranchal/Uttarkhand from Utter Pradesh, Jarkhand from Bihar and Chhatisgarh from Madhya Pradesh.

On the other hand Dr. Manmohan Singh of United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Government created Telangana out of Andhra Pradesh. Inspite of leaders of Andhra Pradesh urging not to disintegrate Andhra Pradesh, President Pranab Mukherjee signed and approval was given.

Since 1 MP is given to a population of 10 lakhs, whether the numbers of MPs of Kerala which has 3,33,87,6777 population and West Bengal which has 9,13,47,736 population will increase 33/34 and 91/92 MPís respectively? A matter need to ponder.
