Imphal: National People’s Party (NPP) has cautioned N. Biren Singh led Manipur government that it will withdraw to support the government with its seven MLAs.

NPP Vice-president Yumnam Joykumar said the party will take serious steps and decide to withdraw from the Biren-led government if the government fails to act positively for normalcy in Manipur in three months.

Joykumar made the declaration while breifing a group of reporters on Monday at the state party head office, here.

He said a general body meeting at the national level was conducted recently. “The meeting seriously discussed the step-sisterly treatment of the Bharatiya Janata Party towards northeastern states, including Manipur.”

The Manipur crisis, erupted on May 3, has had a serious impact on the entire northeastern region, including Meghalaya, Nagaland, and Manipur, he added.

He said the recent Lok Sabha election could be an example as no MP candidate from Meghalaya, Nagaland, and Manipur supported by the BJP could win.

In the All Political Party meeting held in Manipur, no representatives of NPP were invited, he added.

In the Biren-led government, seven seats from NPP ‘supported the BJP government unconditionally’ while forming the government.

Joykumar said the national president of the party, Conrad Sangma, also takes the issue seriously.

He said recently Biren claimed that a developmental change could be witnessed in the ongoing Manipur crisis within three months. However, violence reignited in Manipur’s Jiribam district.

No agenda or programme to solve the Manipur crisis is seen in the 100 days of the Modi 3.0 government, said Joykumar.

The national vice president, who is also a former Manipur DGP claimed, “Chinland Defense Forcend People’s Defence Force (rebel groups based in Myanmar) are creating the problems in the Manipur crisis.”

“To defend and control those foreign militants is the duty of the central government, not the state government. What is the central government doing to stop the new influx of illegal immigrants?” He questioned.

There is a suspicion that the central government is sidelining the Manipur crisis, he added.
