What are the reasons for manipur blockade?
Senapati District in the state of Manipur is the place where this controversy has arisen. Actually this district is dominated by the Kukis and the Nagas. The Kukis in their demand for a separate district of Sadar Hill have caused this blockade. In retaliation to this blockade the Nagas have also imposed a parallel blockade in the state of Manipur. The Sadar Hill District Demand Committee is the main organisation behind the blockade representing the Kukis whereas the Nagas are represented by the United Naga Council which has imposed a parallel blockade, thus impairing the state of Manipur.

A lot of it was because of currency issues. Right after World War II ended, all of Germany was using the Reichsmark. The Germans weren't allowed to manage it, though; the Bri…tish, French and US handled it in the western sectors, the Soviets in the East. The Sovs decided to destabilize Germany economically and printed Reichsmarks so fast they lost value. The Western allies decided to create a new currency, the Deutschmark, that would be managed by the West Germans. This made the Soviets mad and, the day after the DM was rolled out, they set up a blockade of all rail and road traffic into or out of Berlin, and required water shipping to receive special Soviet permission. The intent was to force the West Germans to hand themselves and their land over to East German control, or to get rid of the Deutschmark. Unfortunately for them, the US and British Air Forces had enough cargo planes that by flying 24/7 they could adequately supply West Berlin until the Soviets gave up, which they did about a year later.
