  1. “He stated that the state government is trying to develop the rural areas of the state at par with the city with help and funding from the central government.” Do we have cities in our state? Is Imphal a city? When we do not have basic things like proper potable drinking water supply, proper transportation system, communication system, electricity, irrigation etc. how can we call Imphal and other district capitals cities?
