Manipur: BJP claims stability prevails in state’s coalition government post health minister’s resignation
IMPHAL, April 17: Speculations run high in Manipur with the recent exit of Health Minister L Jayantakumar Singh from the one month old BJP-led ministry in the state.
While the current political scenario seems shaky and unstable to a layman's eye, the ruling party has however dismissed such speculations stating that all is well in the state's coalition government.
According to state BJP general secretary N Nimbus Singh, the chief minister has almost resolved the matter and there are no differences among the coalition partners in the government. Things are going smoothly,
Jayantakumar had tendered his resignation to Biren on Thursday, citing "interference" with his authority as a minister. The final decision on the resignation will be made public after Biren returns here from the BJP national executive meet at Bhubaneswar, Jayantakumar said. "A clearer picture will then emerge," he added. Jayantakumar had, in fact, attended a health directorate-sponsored capping ceremony for female health workers as health minister at Lamphelpat on Saturday.
