Imphal, Sept 12

With news about some candidates starting campaigning for State Assembly General Election at some assembly constituencies of Hill districts, political analyst now speculates that dissident MLAs who are presently camping at New Delhi would have change their strategy of removing N. Biren Singh from the post of Chief Minister and are lobbying the central leadership for dissolution of the 17th Manipur Legislative Assembly.

Source said that Chief Minister N. Biren Singh, still have the blessing of Home Minister Amit Shah and some BJP high profile leaders, however, as the dissident BJP MLAs continue their demand the central leaders now starts rolling their head as sidelining the voice of dissident BJP MLAs may sabotage the strategy to strengthen the BJP in the state of Manipur. The source also added that the central leaderships of the BJP are in dilemma in making a decision to choose a BJP MLA who could replace N. Biren Singh. Moreover, N. Biren Singh still has 30 MLAs to his side even though those MLAs includes defector MLAs from other political party. N. Biren will have the number unless the Speaker of the Manipur Legislative Assembly interferes.  The Central leadership being aware of the political situation of Manipur is likely to wait until September 20 and it is likely that the State Assembly may be put under animated suspension by imposing President Rule.

“It is possible that the centre may put the state assembly under animated suspension as this is the right time”, a political observer told Imphal Times saying that two unsettled issues that might burn the state is still pending.

Terming the Prime Minister Narendra Modi as one of the most committed Prime Minister of India, the political observer who did not want to disclose his identity for security reason said that a solution to the vex problem of NSCN-IM and also introduction of the Contentious Bill ‘CAB’ will be best when the state is under President Rule.

“Who knows the dissident MLAs are provoked by some architecture of high profile BJP leaders to fulfill their causes”, the Political observer said.

    considering the financial crisis faced by the government at the centre n the state and also the difficulty of holding an election, it doesn't seem right to hold election. The elected MLAS should sacrifice their personal interests for the sake of the people....politics is not a business..
