Imphal, July 21:

The speculated crisis among the BJP leaders in the N. Biren Singh led coalition government over differences among the BJP legislatures for change of Chief Minister is not reaching out to the public as the 4 Ministers from the BJP who had allegedly went to lobby the central BJP leaders for change of Chief Minister refuse to give any comment to media query after they arrived at Imphal airport.

The gesture of the 4 Ministers showed uneasy relationship with the Chief Minister of the BJP led coalition government. Earlier, before leaving for New Delhi, the four Ministers had stated that they were visiting Delhi to apprise the central Ministry for taking up various developmental measures in the state. The four of them had lambasted media report which stated that the 4 Minister were on their way to lobby the Central leaders of the BJP for change of the Chief Minister. However, a cable TV news network based in Imphal had created suspicions prompting people to believe media report which stated that there were rivalries among the legislatures of the BJP some preferring to change the Chief Minister. The Cable TV news report had stated that the Chief Minister N. Biren Singh was not informed about their visit to New Delhi.  

The Four ministers, despite various speculations refused to divulge anything to media personalities who were awaiting the return of the ministers at the Bir Tikendrajit International Airport at 11 AM today.

The four cabinet ministers had left Imphal on 17th of this month and speculations were rife among the political fraternity and the public that the ministers were camping at Delhi to pursue BJP central leaders for change of leadership in the state. Works and Power Minister, Th Bishwajit, Education Minister, Thokchom Radheshyam, Social Welfare Minister, Nemcha Kipgen and Agriculture Minister, V Hankhalian, during their stay at Delhi had met various union leaders including National party president JP Nadda on 18th. The group of ministers met Union Minister for Animal Husbandry, Giriraj Singh, Minister of Power (Independent Charge), RK Singh and others, during their stay and said to have discussed in length about the various schemes and projects to be taken up in the state.

It may be mentioned that the ministers had earlier claimed their visit to Delhi as purely related to various works in their department, and not any political agenda.
