Imphal, Dec 2
BJP led coalition government headed by Chief Minister N. Biren Singh seems to be slowly bridging the misunderstandings between the BJP legislatures and the Ministers over the issue of leadership. For around 6 month the government was seen in complete chaos with groups of BJP legislatures including Ministers revolting against the Chief Minister and demanding his replacement putting the government affairs in complete stalemate.
Talks going around the government are that some of the Ministers and BJP MLAs had given up the rebellion for change of N. Biren Singh from the post of Chief Minister. Key players were reported to have given up and media show them sitting together addressing for the same cause. However there were rumours that one lady Minister was still yet to be convinced the trust in the leadership of N. Biren Singh. The differences between (if existed) the lady Minister and the Chief Minister seems to be sorted out, as media fraternity saw the two sitting together Chief Minister’s conference hall launching Matru Vandana Saptah- a week-long maternity benefit programme taken up under Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana (PMMVY). Media witness a friendly gesture between the two as the reporters saw exchange of smiles while greeting one another. Political circle assumed the gesture of the two important leaders – a sign of relief to the running of the government smoothly under Chief Minister N. Biren Singh.
Earlier, MLA P Sharat , who openly challenged the Chief Minister by coming out in public and demanding replacement of Chief Minister N. Biren Singh too was seen along with other key BJP leaders and the NPP legislatures while the Chief Minister was briefing to media about the talk held between the COCOMI and the Union Home Minister.
The series of events that have taken place is an indication that the crisis over leadership in the BJP led coalition government is over. But political analysts credited the series of social issues that compelled the legislature to remain united. Had not it been the burning issues concerning the protest by the COCOMI and the MANPAC, there would be little chance for the BJP legislatures to re-unit. With the kind of dealing, the legislatures of the BJP started realizing that if BJP have to remain in power then N. Biren Singh is one leader who has the potential to head the government – trust regain by N. Biren Singh from his fellow BJP legislatures.
