Th Radheshyam inabilty to answer a direct question on whether the Key portfolios which were taken out from Minister Bishwajit and Dy. Chief Minister Y. Joykumar will be restored showed that the crisis is still there and a solution to the crisis will be sacrificed of either Chief Minister N. Biren Singh or Th. Bishwajit.

Meanwhile, source said that, Central leaderships of the BJP are not favouring change of Chief Minister at this crucial hour. Amidst the political crisis, the issue of overdraft in the state exchequer added salt to the wounds. But Political analysts said that the central Ministers are giving more priority to Chief Minister N. Biren Singh while consulting over this issue for sorting it out.

The commission of enquiry committee on the huge withdrawal of fund from Works and Power department after the portfolios has been pull off from Minister Bishwajit also talks volumes.

“It was just an official procedure that a government should do”, Government Spokesperson Radheshyam said while answering to media person today.

Chief Minister N. Biren Singh who is presently camping at New Delhi would receive an insulting blow if the portfolios that were taken out from Minister Bishwajit and vested on him restored, a political analyst who happen to present at Imphal airport said to this reporter.

In the name of Love

By-Dr Nunglekpam Premi Devi
Independent Scholar

Call me by something, different and ‘even’ name;
‘Please’ me by cute, tiny and strange name;
‘Ebemma’, ‘echoubi’, ‘echan’, ‘e-che’ and ‘enao’;
Fascinating by the tangling ‘ethos’,
Captivating and enthralling and charming;
Oh! Those emotions so sweetening  
Making me proud; making me beautiful;
‘You’ hate me for nothing, blank;
‘You’ chase me for defying your words;
‘Naughty’ as I could; ‘Innocent’ as I exist;
Jumping and running free as I could,
There built no barrier ‘gender’ or ‘religion’;
 No secrete ‘hand’ dare tempt to touch,
So wildly and so vividly I flung off ‘naked’;
Re-birthing ‘me’ each day cocooning,
Tendering and fondling, caring and worshiping;
‘Home’ sweet home ‘ema’, ‘baba’ and ‘we’ll’,
Love, o love! Love’s a different meaning.

Call me by something, different and ‘even’ name
‘Fight’ me by worst, conquering and crushing ‘name’;
‘Kasubi’, ‘Besha’, ‘Oktabi’ and ‘Minai-nubi’,
‘Lam-chat naidbi’, ‘O-lakhi’, ‘Hing-chabi’ and ‘Mi-hatpi;
Criticizing and defeating with no mistake;
Killing ‘me’ so apart alive when in ‘you’ try ruling,
Pulling and triggering my emotions ‘unsaved’;
‘Whisking’ me away, forcing deep drowning;
Ah! You the ruler so timid,
Calling ‘me’ by different name ‘sarcastically’;
‘Rules’ for what goodness; ‘mastering’ your ‘egos’;
Living’s so threatening; I doubt as I live;
Oh! Log me in; count me off the ridge ‘social’
‘Ditching’ me into the category ‘scarlet’;
‘Flashing’ me helping ‘glowing’ so profoundly;
Love, Oh! Love you’re too daring I may say;

Call me by something, different and ‘even’ name;
‘Please’ me by trick, fraud and challenged name;
‘I love you so deep and I’ll die for you’;
‘I’ll buy for you’ and I’ll gift you’;
Oops! Everlasting sound emotions, sparkling into,
‘You deserve this and that’; Do I?’
‘Believing’ thousands, I fall down until I twisted;
‘Higher’ I float; ‘Lower’ down deep you pull me into;
Whirling and whirling until you shred ‘me’;
‘Into the jaws of shame; into the jaws of sinner’
‘Into the jaws of humiliation; into the jaws of embracement’;
‘Throwing me out’ and ‘kicking me out’;
‘Spit onto me; and slapping me harder’
‘Dragging me by hair and cutting it hurriedly’;
‘Who am I? And what you’re to me?’
‘So cruel and so murderous’ you become;
Love, Oh Love!  You’re so inhuman all thy ‘name’.
