Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) will review its support to the BJP-led coalition government in Manipur, said its lone MLA Karam Shyam on Friday who was dropped from the council of ministers.
Karam is among the six cabinet ministers who the chief minister had dropped from his council of ministers on Thursday ahead of induction of five new faces in his council of ministers. The lone member of the LJP in the state Assembly was the minister in-charge of CAF&PD and revenue) in the coalition government.
Addressing a press conference here, the former minister expressed his unhappiness on the development.
Recalling the 2017 general election results, Shyam said that BJP won only 21 seats but as LJP was one of the prominent partners of the BJP-led NDA at the Centre, he was counted as the strength of the BJP and its allies in Manipur.
Shyam claimed that he had rendered his best service to save the coalition government whenever a crisis hit the coalition government. “I always worked with full devotion to solve any problems within the coalition government so that it completes its term,” he said.
According to Shyam, resentments are there not only within the BJP but also among the partners of the coalition government.
The former minister who is also the national vice president of LJP added that he will be contacting the Central leaders of the party to review continuation of support to the present government.
