 North East India Development Party (NEIDP) has joined the BJP-led alliance in Manipur.

While announcing the regional party joining the alliance at a news conference, Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh Monday said that with the joining of the alliance, NEIDP will be one of the partners of the BJP in fighting the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

“In the present political trend in the country, likeminded political parties are making alliance. Considering the trend, Manipur BJP has decided to tie knot with the NEIDP,” said the chief minister.

The knot was tied after several rounds of talks between the leaders of the two political parties,” he said while adding that “BJP is always ready to go along with likeminded committed political parties for development.”

“BJP always open its door wide to go along with political parties who work more rather than talk for publicity purposes,” he added. 

He said that NEIDP is a well organized political party formed by some energetic youths of the state. Even though the party has no MLA in the state Assembly, the party has been working hard for promotion of the youths of the state, said Biren. The chief minister claimed that BJP is a committed political party that always keeps promises.  “BJP had assured safeguarding the territorial integrity of the state and upholding the assurance by taking up various steps to strengthen the unity and integrity of the state,” he said. 

President in-charge of NEIDP, Elangbam Brozendro said that burning issues in the state can be resolved only after all political parties joined hands breaking all barriers. 

While alleging that political parties in the state are playing blame games instead of sitting together to find ways to resolve the issues, Brozendro said, “This is not the ultimate solution to any problem.”

“NEIDP feels that all political parties must sit together keeping behind the differences in ideology and materialize the burning issues,” he said.

According to the NEIDP leader, the state and people have been facing critical issues which needed to be carefully handled. “If not handled carefully with responsibility, the future of the state is dark,” he said. 

Leaders of NEIDP, BJP leaders including Rajya Sabha MP K Bhabananda and former Union minister Th Chaoba attended the event. State health and family welfare minister L Jayentakumar also attended as representative of National People Party (NPP), one of the partners of BJP-led coalition government in the state.
