The landlocked state of Manipur, which has been deduced to a peripheral state by the geo-political economy of Indian state, has been in constant dialogue for its development for last 60 years. However, the nature of dialogues being discursive, leads to framing of superficial development policies and programmes. Ironically, the path feinted for developments by the state, such as the ‘Capital Project‘, are too comprehended by the people at large as indicators of development and progress. Contextualizing, such frivolous centrally and state funded development projects need critical questioning vis-à-vis the on-going mode of development in Manipur. In addition, to question to why none existence of any pragmatic solutions to the deepening malaises, along with striping out the unregulated local market scenario which functions as an agency of exploitation. Finally, as a denizen of Manipur, the concluding notes discussed on the viable ways and the role that the state need to act upon.
