The National People’s Party (NPP) will take a decision soon whether to continue supporting the the Manipur government or to withdraw.

The four NPP MLAs who went to Meghalaya to meet their party president Conrad Sangma returned to Imphal on Monday.

Addressing a press conference at his official quarter in the late evening in Imphal, ex-minister L Jayentakumar said that there is no change in the stand of the NPP. According to him, the four NPP MLAs’ commitment on either to stay together in the government or leave together from the government if anyone of them is removed from being a minister in the government still stands.” the former minister said that it is a question of time. “We will take a decision regarding the matter soon,” he added.

Chief minister N Biren Singh while effecting a reshuffle in his council of ministers on September 24, dropped two of the four NPP ministers. The two ministers –L Jayentakumar and N Kayisii were dropped.

Following the development, all the four MLAs of the NPP led by deputy chief minister Y Joykumar visited Shillong and consulted the party state unit’s position in the coalition government of Manipur with their national president and Meghalaya chief minister Congrad K Sangma. The four MLAs also met with NEDA convener and Assam Health minister Himanta Biwas Sarma and consulted about the political development in the state after the cabinet reshuffle.

None of the MLAs was ready to disclose what was discussed and the decision that was taken after the meeting with Sangma and Sarma.

According to Jayentakumar, the removal of two ministers including him was quite unexpected and very hasty.
