Four Congress MLAs join BJP in Manipur

Imphal: In yet another blow to the Congress, four more MLAs joined the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday. Two Congress MLAs had joined the BJP earlier.

Chief Minister N Biren Singh and state unit president K Bhabanada felicitated them at the BJP office

The four who joined the BJP on Friday are Y Surchandra, Ngamthang Haokip, O Lukhoi and S Bira.

Chief Minister N Biren Singh and state unit president K Bhabanada felicitated them at the BJP office.

T Shyamkumar was the first Congress MLA to join the BJP after assembly elections. He was sworn in as a cabinet minister on March 15.

Another MLA, Ginsuanhau Zou, followed him.

State Congress president TN Haokip said: “Things have changed after the election. Friends have become foes. There is nothing called principle or ideology. Those who crossed floor are not afraid of disqualification.”

Meanwhile, Speaker Y Khemchand is examining two petitions seeking disqualification of Shyamkumar and Zou.
