Manipur, April 15, 2017: It seems like something wrong is happening in Bhartiya Janata Party-led Manipur government after Health Minister L. Jayentakumar submitted his resignation letter to Chief Minister N. Biren Singh on Friday for not consulting him in suspending an official of his department.

Jayentakumar wrote in his letter, he was not consulted when the Manipur health director was suspended recently. Putting that down as the reason for his resignation, Jayentakumar said the manner in which the health director was suspended was an interference in his work as a minister.

It is still unknown that CM Biren Singh has accepted Jayentakumar’s resignation or not.

The BJP deftly outmanoeuvred the Congress to clinch power in Manipur after managing to put together a majority with the support of four MLAs of the NPP, another four form the Naga People’s Front, one from the Trinamool Congress, one Independent and one Congress MLA who defected to the BJP.

BJP is in a coalition government in Manipur.
