NPF on Wednesday expressed strong disappointment over the alleged step-motherly treatment meted out to it by its ruling alliance partner BJP in Manipur which has compelled it to “re-examine” its partnership with the saffron party.

NPF spokesperson Achumbemo Kikon alleged that despite extending unconditional support to Biren Singh-led BJP government in Manipur, NPF was not treated at par with other BJP allies.

A marathon meeting of senior NPF functionaries was held here at the party’s central office here to deliberate on the matter and to decide on the future course of plan. “We have decided to re-examine the stand of the party in Manipur because we have not been given the treatment that we deserve from BJP,” Kikon said while talking to a news channel. In view of this, Kikon disclosed that the NPF party has called for a meeting on May 18 to deliberate on the issue. He maintained that this was not a new development as the party had already made its stand clear earlier as well.

Opposition leader TR Zeliang also echoed the same concern and said the party has made its observation on the issue. He said in the event NPF wins the Manipur Outer Parliamentary seat, the party would take a call at a later stage.

Zeliang said NPF president Dr Shürhozelie Liezietsu has already instructed the party’s four legislators in Manipur and the Lok Sabha candidate to attend a meeting on May 18 to deliberate on the issue and decided further course of action.
