The breakthrough came after a meeting with home minister Amit Shan and BJP chief JP Nadda in Delhi. NEDA Converter Himanta Biswa Sarma played a crucial role in breaking the impasse
Imphal: After days of speculation and much drama in Manipur, the National People’s Party (NPP) came around and have decided to continue their support to the N Biren Singh-led coalition government.
The breakthrough came after convenor of North-East Democratic Alliance (NEDA), Hemanta Biswa Sarma and NPP delegation led by Meghalaya chief minister Conrad Sangma met home minister, Amit Shah, in New Delhi. They also met BJP chief JP Nadda.
The NPP MLAs exited from former CM and Congress leader Okram Ibobi Singh camp on Tuesday.
“NPP will continue to support BJP govt in Manipur for the development of Manipur, Sarma tweeted.
A recent fallout in Manipur saw nine legislators, including three BJP MLAs, resign from the party. They withdrew their support to the BJP-led government. The NPP legislators had also joined hands with Opposition Congress under the Secular Progressive Front (SPF).
Senior Assam Minister and go-to man for BJP in the northeast once again saved the day. He spoke to all legislators and took them to Delhi to meet central leaders and managed to break the impasse.
NPP had earlier accused CM Biren Singh for functioning in an autocratic and undemocratic manner.
