In Uttar Pradesh, there are 403 MLA's in the Lok Sabha there are 80 MP's in the Rajya Sabha there are 31 MP's. There is one MP for every 5.0375 Assembly Segments as well as most advanced state.

In Maharastra and Tamil Nadu there is one MP for every 6 Assembly Segments and they received Rs. 5 crores as Local Area Development Fund lying in the development of 6 Assembly Segments. In Manipur for the Inner Manipur Parliamentary Constituency there are 32 Assembly Segments and for the outer Manipur Parliamentary Constituency there are 28 Assembly Segments, getting Rs 5 crores from the Government of India every year.

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 60 Assembly Segments of Maharastra and Tamil Nadu Rs. 50 crores are given annually. For one year of local area development fund to increase amount of Rs 40 crores are given.

For five years local area development fund, Rs 200 crores increased are given. In short for 60 Assembly segments in Maharastra and Tamil Nadu the amount of Rs. 250 crores are received as Local Area Development Fund. On the other hand for Manipur for 2 MP's 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 MP's in the Lok Sabha and 1 MP in the Rajya Sabha which is the same with Manipur. In Delhi, there are 70 Assembly segments in the Lok Sabha it has 7 MP's in the Rajya Sabha there are 3 MPs. It gets 1 MP for 10 Assembly segments and has more MP's than Manipur. The territorial area of Delhi is 1, 483 sq.km Manipur is 15 times bigger than Delhi.

The geographical area of Nagaland is 16,579 sq.km with 60 Assembly Segments and there is one MP each in the Lok Sabha, Rajya Sabha. In Mizoram there are 40 Assembly segments, in the Rajya Sabha and the Lok Sabha there is one MP each the geographical area of Mizoram is 21,081 sq.km. In Meghalaya there are 60 Assembly segments in the Lok Sabha there are 2 MP's and in the Rajya Sabha, there is one (1) MP.

The geographical area of Meghalaya is 22,429 sq.km. In Arunachal Pradesh there are 60 Assembly segments. In the Lok Sabha there are 2 MP's and in the Rajya Sabha there is one MP the geographical area of the Rajya Sabha there is 7 MP's. The geographical area of Assam is 78,438 sq.km. There are 32 Assembly segments in Sikkim there is one MP in the Lok Sabha and there is one MP in the Rajya Sabha the geographical area of Sikkim is 7,096 sq.km.

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 know 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.

If the Naga inhabited area of Manipur is given to Nagaland by India which gives the message of Peace as well as Nuclear Power Country and non-violence and members of the Non-Alignment movement, taking the opportunity of the weakness of the Manipur State Government as the third gift of Manipur, it will be the epicentre of World War-III is the belief of Manipur Labourer Union.

Whether the Manipuris who cannot say anything beginning from the losing of Kabow valley adn 29 sq.km of territorial area can believe the promises made by the Congress I and the BJP that not an inch of Manipur territory will be given away is a point to be discussed by the people of Manipur.

According to the Report of International year Book 1988, the geographical area of Manipur is 22,356 sq.km. According to report received from Encyclopedia India the geographical area of Manipur is 8,000 sq.mile. If the fact that the area of Kabow Valley is 7,000 sq.mile is true the area of Manipur will be 15,000 sq.mile. In sq.km Manipur 22,356+Kabow Valley 19,561, the total area of Manipur will be 41,918 sq.km. It will be greater than Kerala which has 20 MP's in the Lok Sabha with area of 38,863 sq.km.

Since 1 MP is given to a population of 10 lakhs, whether the numbers of MP's 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 MP's respectively?

And why is Family planning implemented in Manipur which has only 27,21,756 population with a huge amount?

However, Manipuri Labour Union will start demanding to the Government of India by submitting memorandum that the Number of MP's in the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha must be increased to 10 and 4 respectively by giving one MP to every 6 Assembly segments of Manipur.

N.B. Ref No. MLU/241/17 dated 24-01-2017 Statement "12 Council of Ministers must be increased to 18 Council of Ministers" the unskilled Labour charge Rs.255 should be read as Rs. 255. Regarding Ukhrul Rs. 120x2=240 reds as Rs 225 and the deficit amount is Rs. 15. The Labour charge fixed by the Manipur Labour Department in 2014 cannot meet the expense of two square Meals. Note even a rupee is left for tea and Roti. In this condition can people of Ukhrul like to work it should be read.

For the errors committed, Manipuri Labour Union appeals to the people forgive.
