IT News

Imphal, June 28,

Following failure to settle the differences among the BJP legislators, the Central BJP leadership is likely to interfere and find a way to solve the crisis soon. As almost all BJP legislators including Minister Th. Bishwajit and his team who were revolting for replacing N. Biren Singh from the post of Chief Minister are camping at Delhi. The Central leadership had called Speaker Yumnam Khemchand to take stock of his political narrative regarding the crisis. Deputy Chief Minister Yumnam Joykumar had also rushed to New Delhi in connection with the crisis.

Chief Minister convened meeting of the BJP legislators to sort out the differences day before yesterday but as not many BJP MLAs turn up, the meeting could not be held.

A cabinet meeting held yesterday also saw some Ministers absent.

Chief Minister N. Biren Singh and Education Minister Th. Radheshyam also left Imphal for New Delhi today. Source said that the Chief Minister was summoned by the central leadership to talk about the development. The source added that this time the Chief Minister went along with all his legislators who supports him.

Political analyst are of the view that if the BJP Central leadership fails to resolve the crisis by sorting out the disagreement between the BJP legislators, the center may impose President Rule by putting the state assembly under animated suspension.

    People want a valid reason for the change of guard but it should not be in their personal interests.

    The present political crisis in Manipur is not likely to change leadership as the revolt party shows lack of courages. They barked inside the four corner walls keeping the door remains closed. May be some amenities satisfy the cry. Once they open the door, PR or alternate one stands at the courtyard. Besides, people can't understand their voice as enough to support.
