Manipur Congress President K Meghachandra Singh has rubbished Chief Minister N Biren Singh’s indication that Congress MLAs may well be interested in jumping ship.

Speaking exclusively to Northeast Live, Meghachandra said that there is no question of leaving the party as far as the 5 MLAs are concerned. Meghachandra also expressed surprise as to how Chief Minister N Biren Singh could gauge from the body language of the MLAs that were interested in supporting the BJP. The MPCC chief termed CM N Biren’s hint of a possible move by Congress MLAs as totally baseless.

It may be mentioned that during an exclusive conversation with Northeast Live Chief Minister N Biren Singh had said that he can’t help it if few among the 5 Congress MLAs decide to extend their support to the BJP government.

Meghachandra added that the Congress is taking things seriously. He also accused the BJP for its Anti-people’s policy, taking a dig at Union Home Minister Amit Shah for his comment on making Hindi compulsory in the Northeast, the Manipur Congress President termed Shah’s announcement as Anti-People.

Meanwhile, the Congress is also planning to restore its strength in the State. Meghachandra added the party will organise membership drives in all the constituencies in the state.
