Following the recent resignation of BJP MLAs Th Radheshyam and Karam Shyam from the posts of advisor to CM and chairman of State Tourism Corporation, the state BJP has called a high level party meeting on Friday, April 21 at 11 am in state BJP office to discuss the latest developments.
Both Th Radheshyam and Karam Shyam were Cabinet ministers in the previous BJP-led government under Chief Minister N Biren Singh till they were shunted out in a mid-term reshuffle.
Both the MLAs cited certain grievances with the present Chief Minister N Biren Singh in video clips released in the social media.
On the other hand, some BJP MLAs are camping in New Delhi and meeting Central leaders and voicing their disappointment with the state leadership as to lack of decentralisation of power among ministers and MLAs.
Another social media post by Union Minister of DONER BL Verma showed MLAs Th Radheshyam and Karam Shyam meeting him alongwith two other MLAs.
The other two MLAs are chairperson of Manipur Development Society Paonam Brojen of Wangjing Tentha and Chairman of MANIREDA Khwairakpam Raghumani Singh of Uripok assembly constituency. Sources said, they are also likely to resign.
Party sources here said, Manipur incharge Sambit Patra is expected to attend the meeting in which the Chief Minister and party MLAs were also invited.
Meanwhile, the Chief Minister’s office has convened a meeting of all ruling party MLAs to deliberate on the ensuing National Conference of Youth Affairs and Sports Ministers in Imphal on April 24.
