National BJP president Amit Shah Monday convened a meeting to resolve the power tussle within BJP-led coalition government in Manipur.

Besides Prime Minister Narendra Modi, chief minister N Biren Singh, state unit president Ksh Bhabananda and works minister Th Bishwajit, who is projected as leader of the party MLAs demanding replacement of Biren as chief minister of the state, attended the meeting held at BJP head office in New Delhi that failed to resolve the crisis.

The meeting commenced from around 2.40 pm lasted till midnight. However, with no amicable solution worked out, national leaders decided to hold further talks on later date.

The next round of talks is likely to be held on October 2 or next day, a party source here said on Monday.

Admitting that party national leaders have initiated steps to resolve the existing internal crisis, chief minister N Biren Singh said that the talks will continue.

National leaders will fix another date in the next few days and he will be going to New Delhi again, Singh said, responding to a query from reporters.

Singh returned to Imphal from New Delhi and attended the state level celebration of 123rd birth anniversary of Hijam Irabot, the iconic people’s leader and pioneer of revolutionary movement in Manipur.

“Talks to resolve the crisis has started and will continue. I believed the crisis will be resolved soon,” Singh said.

The chief minister had rushed to the national capital on Saturday to attend the meeting convened by party national president Amit Shah to resolve the demand of change in leadership.

Reports reaching here said that most of the ministers and MLAs of the ruling party including the dissident camp in New Delhi visited the party head office while the meeting was in progress. However, they were denied from meeting with the national leaders, saying that Prime Minister and other leaders of the party were on a crucial round of meeting.
