Manipur: NPF withdraws support from BJP government

Imphal | The Naga People’s Front (NPF) today announced that it will withdraw its support from the Biren Singh led ruling BJP government in Manipur.

Former Chief Minister and NPF leader TR Zeliang announcing the pullout of the MLAs wrote on Twitter,” After an intense deliberation and review meeting with the party functionaries and the NPF MLAs of Manipur State, the NPF party has decided in principle to pull out our 4 NPF MLAs from the BJP led Govt. in Manipur headed by N Biren Singh soon after the LS election is completed.”

Citing the reason behind the withdrawl, Zeliang wrote,” This decision at this juncture is necessitated due to the indifferent attitude of the BJP towards us, its coalition partner in Manipur and also in the State of Nagaland. Further implementation of this decision will be finalised after the Election process.”

The decision by NPF won’t affect the BJP government in Manipur as in the 60 seat assembly BJP already has 31 MLAs required for the Majority along with the support of 4 NPP MLAs, 1 RJD MLA and 1 independent MLA which makes it 37.
