With the change of guard in Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC), the congress dissident MLAs have now won their battle halfway. The dissident legislators now foresee reshuffle of the ministry in the coming days.
Former President of MPCC, Gaikhangam today handed over charges of President of the MPCC to TN Haokip, MLA of Saikot Assembly Constituency in a formal function held at Congress Bhavan, BT Road here at around 9.30 AM.
Chief Minister, Okram Ibobi Singh; Health Minister, Phungzathang Tonsing and the dissident MLAs were present at the occasion.
Earlier, Gaikhangam has stated that the crisis in Congress party is internal matter and will be sorted out soon. While talking to reporters yesterday, he said that there will be no question of any disturbances to the election strategy of the Congress party.
The newly appointed President of MPCC, TN Haokip soon after assuming the charge assured to strengthen the party strategy. Haokip said he will work full heartedly to ensure victory in the coming Municipal as well as the general elections scheduled in 2017.
Even as some of the media reports said that the ministry reshuffle is not on the card in view of the threats by the present ministers, some of the dissident MLAs are in the full hope that the reshuffle will take place on April 9.
The dissident MLAs have revolted against Ibobi-led state cabinet to ensure one man one post among the congress legislatures.
Meanwhile, one of the members of the dissident MLA told that they are expecting induction of at least 10 new faces into the present cabinet. Their demand is genuine and not against any of the incumbent minister.
He also informed that the new president will fly off to the national capital and meet AICC leaders including Sonia Gandhi to discuss the affairs of the State.
However, it is clear that even if the Chief Minister is the head of Congress Legislative Party, the reshuffle will take place with a nod from Congress high command.
