BJP govt in the interest of Manipur: Governor Najma


Manipur Governor Najma Heptulla has clarified that her decision to invite the BJP led group to form the government instead of asking single largest party Congress to do so, saying her move is in the “interest of Manipur.”

Immediately after announcing her invitation to BJP at a media conference at Raj Bhavan Najma said “she went by the book.”

“I know the responsibility of a Governor vested by the Constitution to weigh and measure the stability of the state. I know Congress is the single largest party but it is not incumbent on the Governor necessarily and as per ruling of the Supreme Court, the responsibility of the Governor is to see who has got majority and who will be working for the interest of the state.” The Governor said.

She added Manipur needs a lot of development and issues regarding youths and creating jobs must be taken up and for this stability in the state is required.

“The BJP has the requisite strength (to form the government). The group has 30 plus members (in a House of 60).

Clarifying further that she has made the right decision, the Governor brushed aside charges alleged by the Congress that their claim to form the government has been derided. “I have 35 years of politics and 17 times in the chair. I have worked with 5 different Prime Ministers and nobody put such an allegation that I would do anything wrong. I am a very straight forward person and I go by the book. I know the rules and regulations and my experience of 17 years was very helpful to me to do the correct things and I hope it will be in the interest of the people of Manipur,” she said.

The Governor hinted that the swearing of ministers will be finished tomorrow, “Swearing-in will be most probably all at one go. I like to do everything at one go.”

Governor said she did not give any time frame for the BJP to prove majority. “I like it sooner possibly soon after the swearing in preferably by March 22 and 23. The new government should start functioning immediately,” she said.

Answering on whether she was disappointed with the previous government, she said, “It is not for me decide, it is the people who decide if they are satisfied or not. As far as development is concerned a lot can be done.”
