Imphal, April 17: The resignation of Th Radheshyam, former education minister and incumbent Heirok MLA, from the post of advisor to the Chief Minister of Manipur, has led to confusion within the state’s BJP government.
In his resignation letter, Radheshyam cited a lack of responsibility in the role and subsequently posted a video on social media expressing dissatisfaction with the current government’s policies and governance. He highlighted the inability of the government to release pension amounts for retired teachers and the poor condition of roads in his constituency.
In a separate video, Radheshyam called for politicians to speak the truth and refrain from engaging in illegal activities that could hinder the state’s progress.
While the reason for his sudden resignation from the post of advisor to the CM remains unclear, some are speculating that the move could prompt other BJP MLAs holding top posts in PSUs and corporations as chairmen/deputy chairmen to follow suit.
The BJP won an absolute majority in the 12th Manipur Legislative Assembly election with 32 seats, forming the BJP 2.0 government with the support of the Naga People’s Front. MLAs from the National People’s Party, Janata Dal-United, Kuki People’s Alliance, and an independent MLA also extended support to the BJP 2.0 government.
However, the allocation of ministerial berths proved problematic, with some MLAs causing confusion. Despite this, 12 MLAs were made ministers, including CM N Biren Singh, as per the directive of the party’s central leaders. Some MLAs were also allotted chairmen/deputy chairmen posts in various PSUs.
The situation within the state BJP is currently unclear, with reports of some ruling MLAs camping in New Delhi. The recent resignation of Th Radheshyam has further complicated matters, leading to uncertainty and confusion within the state’s BJP government.
