Karam Shyam joins BJP

Imphal: Ahead of the state assembly elections next year, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) added former minister and Lok Janshakti Party national vice-president Karam Shyam to the party on Thursday.

A felicitation ceremony for the lone LJP MLA Karam Shyam was held in presence of chief minister N Biren Singh, Sambit Patra, party’s in-charge for Manipur, state party chief Sarda Adhikarimayum and other party leaders and workers.

Welcoming the former minister into the party, CM Biren Singh tweeted: “Heartiest welcome to Shri Karam Shyam Ji, Hon’ble MLA Langthabal AC, as he joined the BJP party today.”

“The dynamic leadership of Hon’ble PM Narendra Modi Ji and the party’s principles continue to gain the faith of prominent leaders from different parties,” he tweeted.

MLA Karam Shyam, who served as the minister for CAF & PD in the N Biren Singh-led government, was dropped from the cabinet during a ministry reshuffle last year.

Last week, two prominent politicians of the state, MLA RK Imo Singh and Congress MLA Yamthong Haokip, also joined the saffron party in New Delhi.
