BJP legislators rush to New Delhi, seek CM N Biren’s ouster
The power tussle in the BJP government in Manipur has taken an interesting turn after several ministers, MLAs, and MPs rushed to New Delhi to meet the top brass of the saffron party.
Sources claimed a section of BJP legislators in the state have sought the ouster of chief minister N Biren Singh after he had effected a cabinet reshuffle on Thursday (June 13).
Chief minister N Biren on Thursday had clipped wings of deputy chief minister Yumnam Joykumar Singh and PWD minister Th Biswajit Singh and took over finance, public works, and power departments.
Following a cabinet reshuffle, Sigh flew to the National Capital on Friday to defend himself against a leadership challenge.
