SHILLONG | JUNE 24, 2020:
A delegation of the National People's Party (NPP) led by its National President and Meghalaya Chief Minister, Conrad K Sangma, and Manipur Deputy Chief Minister, Y. Joy Kumar Singh met the Union Home Minister, Amit Shah in New Delhi on Wednesday to discuss the prevailing political turmoil in Manipur.
This was informed by Assam Minister and Convener of the North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA), Himanta Biswa Sarma, who tweeted that both the BJP and the NPP will continue to work together for the development of Manipur.
It may be mentioned that Conrad had gone to Manipur along with Himanta on Sunday to review the situation in the state following the resignation of three BJP MLAs and the decision of six legislators including four NPP ministers to withdraw support from the N. Biren Singh-led government recently.
On his return to Shillong on Monday, the swab sample of the Chief Minister was collected. The report, which was received on the same evening, turned out to be negative.
Based on the report, the Health Department had granted permission to the CM to travel to Manipur again and from there, to New Delhi.
