Decades of Sadar Hills Demand

Since the early 1970s, Manipur has
been witnessing occasional strikes and bandhs demanding upgradation of the
Sadar Hills area of Senapati district into a full-fledged revenue district.
Despite being fully aware of the necessity of its upgradation based on
administrative convenience, Manipur government has been repeatedly ignoring the
wishes of the people. It is high time that the state government, instead of
overlooking the issue, deals promptly with ingenuity and positive outcome.
