P'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 MPs, 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 Manipur is 8000 sq.miles and the geographical area of Kabow Valley is 7000 sq.miles. After Manipur was merged into the Indian Union on 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 V.P. Singh of National Front Government by giving 22 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 led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) Government's LK Advani and AB.Vajpai conspired to 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 Uttaranchal / Uttarkhand from Utter Pradesh, Jarkhand from Bihar and Chhatisgarh from Madhya Pradesh. On the other hand Dr. Manmohon 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 Manipuri Labour Union, Whether the Manipuris who cannot say anything beginning from the loosing of Kabow valley and 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 M.P'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 M.P's of Kerala which has 3,33,87,677 population and West Bengal which has 9,13,47,736 population will increase 33/34 and 91/92 M.P'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 M.P'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.
