Floor Test in Manipur Assembly Today

A crucial one-day session of the Manipur Assembly will be held on Monday when a confidence motion would be moved by Chief Minister NBiren Singh, officials said in Imphal on Sunday.

A notice issued by Manipur Assembly secretary M Ramani Devi said that the Chief Minister would move a motion on Monday seeking the confidence of the House on the council of ministers.

The spokesperson of the Opposition Congress in Manipur, Ningombam Bupenda Meitei, said that instead of accepting the no-confidence motion moved by the Congress, the Manipur legislative Assembly has accepted the motion of confidence moved by BJP government.

“The Congress is confident to defeat the motion. The Congress has already issued whip to all its 24 MLAs to be present in the house and vote against the confidence motion. We would defeat the trust vote moved by the government. We would convert the people’s true mandate of 2017 into reality,” the Congress spokesperson said.
