N Biren Singh

BJP leader N Biren Singh will take oath as Chief Minister of Manipur for a second term on Monday at 3 PM.  Singh received 24,814 votes in the final counting and defeated Congress candidate P Sharatchandra. The 61-year-old leader was unanimously elected as the new chief minister of the state in a meeting held in Imphal, Manipur on Sunday. The meeting was attended by prominent party members like Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and Union Law and Justice Minister Kiren Rijiju.  Many BJP leaders congratulated Singh after he was unanimously elected to lead. 

Union Finance Minister, Nirmala Sitharaman told the reporters, “It’s a good decision taken unanimously by everyone. It will ensure that Manipur will have a very good, stable, and responsible government which will be built further because the Centre today under the leadership of PM Modi gives special attention to the northeast state. Therefore, this decision will go a long way in providing Manipur stability and good governance together.”

Biren Singh traveled to Delhi twice in the last week in order to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah amid talks over the top post. On Saturday night a meeting was also held over at Amit Shah’s residence. Despite the fact that Biren Singh was selected unanimously and had expressed his faith in BJP even before the state elections, there were various reports of accusations against him by his colleagues at the time of his tenure. 

The Bharatiya Janata Party won 32 out of 60 seats in the assembly elections of Manipur. Winning elections in Manipur was important for BJP in order to keep expanding its footprint in the northeastern states. The party had won elections in four out of five states in the round. Yogi Adityanath will also be taking oath in Uttar Pradesh on Friday, the party is yet to announce the name of the chief ministers of Goa and Uttarakhand.
