NPP internal crisis: Kayisii expelled from party for six years by Kipgen group

IMPHAL: Deepening the crisis within the National People’s Party (NPP), one of the allies of the BJP in the coalition government in Manipur, Fishery minister N Kayisii has been expelled from the party by the group led by Thangminlien Kipgen.

Few days ago, NPP national president Conrad K Sangma had appointed N Kayisii as interim president of the Manipur unit of the NPP on the reported ending of the tenure of Thangminlien Kipgen as president.  

An order signed by general secretary (adm) Thongkam Haokip of NPP, Manipur unit issued on Thursday said that Kayisii was expelled on the recommendation of the Disciplinary Action Committee of the state unit of the party for six years under the constitution of the party.

“On his expulsion, Shri N Kayisii ceased to be a primary member of the National People’s Party, Manipur unit with immediate effect,” the order stated.

Earlier on Wednesday, NPP national president Conrad Sangma had expelled Thangminlien Kipgen and three other members were expelled from the party for “acting against the party constitution”.

Meanwhile, Thangminlien Kipgen, in a press release, stated that he had never acted or gone against the party constitution.

“I have never acted and will never go against the constitution of the party,” said Thangminlien Kipgen in the press release.

Thangminlien Kipgen who was re-elected as president of the state unit of the NPP uncontested for the term 2020-2023 was in the centre of controversy surfaced within the state unit of the party.

His re-election was at a time while NPP national president Conrad K Sangma appointed N Kayisii as interim president of the state unit of the party on ending the tenure of Kipgen as president.

Alleging violation of the party constitution, the NPP national president had expelled Kipgen along with some of his followers from the party.

Kipgen stated that he had never acted against the constitution of the party as accused by the national president. “The NPP national president was misled by some individuals for their personal gain”, Kipgen added.
