4 BJP Ministers’ visit to Delhi: Is there an agenda to replace CM?

If what the four BJP cabinet Ministers who had left Imphal for New Delhi yesterday evening after meeting the governor of Manipur Dr. Najma Heptulla turns out to be what some media and political analyst of the state, not only Chief Minister N. Biren Singh but the whole organizational set up of the BJP, which is the largest political party in the world, is going to be in deep trouble here in the state of Manipur. A change of guard in the present coalition regime led by the BJP will only weaken the party’s strategies while preparing for the mush awaiting by-election after the disqualification of some MLAs under the 10th Scheduled of the Indian Constitution and also for the 12th Manipur Legislative Assembly Election which is just about one and half years left from now.

The four top profile Ministers who are from the BJP in the coalition government, before leaving Imphal had stated that their visit is not related to change of Chief Minister. Each of them termed news report about the four Minister lobbying and camping for change of Chief Minister are a bunch of irrational speculations, all the four Minister said while talking to media at Imphal Airport before leaving for New Delhi. One among the Minister also said that their visit to New Delhi is to meet the central leaders and to consult for the strengthening of the BJP led coalition government in the state. Every political analyst knows that politicians speak only some part of the truth and hide most of the real agenda most of the time. However, if one analyzes the earlier revolt for change of Chief Minister where none of the MLAs or Ministers who were in the dissident camp refused to talk to the press, the four Ministers clearly expressed the press on the reason for their visit.

Political drama in the post-Rajya Sabha Election is worth analyzing and there may be some sort of differences between the 4 BJP Ministers and Chief Minister who were the only BJP representatives to hold Ministerial portfolios in the coalition government. The move of the four BJP Ministers cannot be simply taken as stated by them, but there are reasons to believe that these four Ministers may have other agenda as they have stated one very important line – “propose of our visit is to strengthen the government under the BJP”.

Imphal Times, had carried a news report about the crippling in the functioning of the Manipur Pradesh BJP , with some hardcore BJP men and women expressing apprehension in fighting either the By-election or the General election as the party has not still appointed any office bearers. Newly elected President of the BJP Manipur Pradesh while talking to Imphal Times however had stated that he had directed all the former office bearers to continue their service until new office bearers have been appointed.

The political crisis and the race for Chief Ministerial post in addition to the failure to restructure the BJP Manipur Pradesh and in addition to these serious allegations against Chief Minister N. Biren Singh about his nexus between drug lords and him by a decorated police officer have made every observer thinking beyond what the politicians (4 BJP Ministers) had stated to press before leaving Imphal.

And this time no other Ministers from other ally political parties with the government had accompanied the four ministers, which showed that something beyond calculation or speculation may likely happen soon.

Saying so, change of Chief Minister N. Biren Singh at this crucial hour will only sabotage the strength of the BJP in Manipur and this is well understood by the Central BJP leaders.
