Armed Forces (Special Powers) Acts (AFSPA)

One of the biggest impediments to development of Manipur is corruption. Every other political figure, official, groups of people want to fill their homes on the basis of others suffering.

Tribal Division

Manipur is not united. There are major 3 tribes (Meitei, Naga and Kuki) in Manipur, each with a separate set of demands, causing a lot of unrest in the public.
