Imphal, Oct 6: Congress MLA Nongthombam Biren today tender resignation from his post in protest against the Okram Ibobi Singh led Congress Government inability to tackle the issues of the people of Manipur.
“I don’t feel that I deserve to remain as an MLA when multiple problems in the state cannot be tackled”, the legislator who got elected from Heingang Assembly constituency said to media persons at his residence before submitting his resignation to the Manipur Legislative Assembly.
Biren said that the government has failed to solve the issues of public interest. He blamed the Ibobi Singh led government over his inability to settle the differences between the various communities over the passing of a new legislation to protect the indigenous people of the state.
“It’s over one year now and the nine dead bodies are still lying without performing the last rite”, Biren lamented.
He further said that he joined politics to protect the people of the state and its boundary and also to promote harmonious life among the various communities of the state. When the state burns with various issues and when the people are left in chaos there seem to be no logical meaning to hold the post of MLA, Biren said. He however said that if his people wanted him to go back to the state assembly he will definitely go by contesting the upcoming election.
Biren further questioned the reason for letting free three NSCN-IM cadres who were arrested along with arms some 3 days back at Senapati.
Nongthombam Biren is the 6th MLA who had tender resignation from the 10th Manipur Legislative Assembly. Earlier 4 Naga Peoples’ Front MLAs resigned from the state Assembly over the issue of ILPS Bill in August last year. Recently, congress MLA Y Erabot resigned from his post as well as from the Congress Party and joined the BJP unable to stand with the Okram Ibobi Singh led Congress government.
When asked whether he will join some other political party, N Biren said that he is still with the Congress Party and yet to be resigned.

If Mr. Biren is forming a new party that’s fine as everyone will resumes his disappointments or setbacks with the Congress party. But if he joins BJP he is the greatest thief & pollutant. Pl don’t pollute BJP ..we want to test BJP’s rule as a new party. Pl leave BJP alone Mr. Irabot and don’t take Mr. Irabot’s path Mr. Biren
