Imphal, June 21:

After 4 NPP MLAs of the Manipur Legislative Assembly resigned from the BJP led government in the state ahead of the Rajya Sabha Election held on June 19, National Chief of the NPP Conrad Sangma, who is also the Chief Minister of Meghalaya and BJP’s architect of North East India Himanta Biswa Sarma arrived in the state in a special charter flight today.

Source with the Imphal Times said that both the leaders rushed to Manipur to settle the dispute between the state unit NPP and the BJP, however, there is no official information about the reason for their visit in the state. A high level source said that both the leaders of NPP and BJP arrived at Imphal airport at around 11.30 am. Soon after their arrival, both went to Classic Grande Hotel and are meeting the NPP MLAs of Manipur who tender resignation from the Ministry.

The parting of the NPP MLAs from the Manipur BJP has created a serious problem to the relationship between the NPP and the BJP at the centre. NPP is a partner of the BJP led NDA government at the center. Source said that Conrad Sangma is in the state to settle the differences between the state NPP and the state BJP.

Both Conrad Sangma and Himanta Biswa had also met the Chief Minister N. Biren Singh and other leaders of the BJP.

The visit of Conrad Sangma and Himanta Biswa is significant as the much talk about criticism to the recent overtaking of the political theatre under the control of Chief Minister N. Biren Singh and Speaker Yumnam Khemchand may be healed if their mission is a success.

At the time of filing this report, both the leaders are busy talking to their respective counterpart however, there are no report of any amicable solution between the two political parties.
