N Biren Singh

Barely a day after the BJP parliamentary board had appointed central observers for the election of the leader of the party’s legislature party, senior leaders of Manipur BJP including the caretaker chief minister, N Biren Singh went to New Delhi on March 15.

Manipur BJP president A Sarda Devi, party’s state unit’s general secretary (organization) Abhay Giri and senior BJP leader Th Bishwajit were on the same flight with Biren Singh to New Delhi.

A source close to the party said that they rushed to Delhi on the directive of the national leaders of the party to discuss the election of the leader of the BJP legislature party who will be the next chief minister of the state. The Manipur BJP leaders are likely to meet with the national leaders of the party by this evening to decide the leader.

On late March 14, the parliamentary board of the BJP appointed the union minister of finance Nirmala Sitharaman as a central observer and union minister of law and justice Kiren Rijiju as co-observer for the elections of the leader of the legislative party.

Even as the BJP got the magic number to retain power in the recently conducted elections to the state assembly winning 32 seats in the 60-member assembly, the party is yet to form the government with the best reason known to the party national and state leaders.
