Haokip jumps ship saying he was encouraged by BJPs great development

IndiaHaokip jumps ship saying he was encouraged by BJPs great development

The National People’s Party (NPP) said that Manipur Minister Letpao Haokip jumping ship to BJP will not have any impact on Biren Singh govt.

The coalition government led by N Biren Singh in the state said, “We see the shifting of allegiance as individual reasoning. This is not going to stale any relationship at the combined government functioning in Manipur,” NPP National General Secretary Mutchu Mithi stated to UNI.

The Conrad K Sangma-led NPP is part of the BJP-led government in Manipur as well as the North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA). On Wednesday, Haokip, who holds the Sports portfolio, joined BJP at the party headquarters in the national capital, in presence of the Manipur election party in charge and Union Minister Bhupender Yadav and others.

Haokip, who turned his loyalties said he was encouraged by the developmental works being carried out across the country, including the Northeast under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Mithi, who is the NPP state chief in Arunachal Pradesh, on the latest political development in the Northeastern state further said, “Every party has its own agenda and should fight for its own survival. We have our own agenda. We will contest maximum seats in the upcoming Assembly election. “In the Manipur scenario, other than BJP, NPP seems to be the next alternative,” he added. Mithi also informed that NPP national president had already declared to contest the Manipur elections solo. Manipur, along with the states of Uttar Pradesh, Goa, Punjab, and Uttarakhand, will go to the polls next year.

It is surmised that Haokip joining BJP won’t affect the coalition govt in Manipur.
