Bharatiya Janata Party

Another blow for the Congress party in Manipur with their leaders switching loyalty. Kikhondou Newmai, MLA from Tamei constituency, has joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) along with three members of the Autonomous District Council (ADC).

Kikhondou Newmai while speaking to newspersons sited the inefficiency of the party in the hills as his reason to discontinue with the Indian National Congress (INC).

“I left Congress because I was fed up with its party leaders. They don’t think about the hill people. I believe in Narendra Modiji and his bright thoughts and ideology. Therefore, I joined BJP. Besides, my people forced me to resign from Congress. Recently, I submitted a resignation letter to the president of Congress and speaker of Manipur Legislative Assembly. I do believe that BJP will form the next Government in Manipur,” said Kikhondou Newmai.

Interestingly, there have been switch from BJP to Congress also due to denial of tickets. The elections for the 11th Manipur Legislative Assembly is just round the corner and abandoning parties and joining new ones seems to be like a new trend among MLA’s of the state.
