Supporting BJP with party's permission, I'm still in Trinamool Congress: Robindro

After taking the charge of Manipur Chief Minister on last Wednesday, Nongthombam Biren Singh on Monday won the floor test with the support of 32 MLAs in the 60-member assembly.

Imphal: The crucial trust vote for Manipur's BJP government will soon be held today. The party, which was the second largest with 21 seats out of the 60 in the state assembly, needs another 10 to prove majority. The Congress's Govindas Konthoujam was defeated by voice vote.

The Speaker rejected an appeal by Congress member Kh.

He said, "Congress is offering ministerial berths and targeting to rope in four MLAs". "No trouble has taken place inside and the voting process passed off smoothly.The opposition bench cooperated with us".

The governor will address the House and the new government will present its first budget tomorrow.

Somali pirates release oil tanker and crew, officials say
Pirate Abdulaahi claimed the pirates killed a member of the marine force and injured another, but Hassan said that was untrue. Contact via a telephone call has since been made with the ship's master from the EU Naval Force operation in London.

"After forming the government, our first task was to lift the more than four-month-old blockade imposed by the United Naga Council".

TMC vice-president Mukul Roy said, "After winning his election, Robindro Singh was in touch with the Congress as we had told him that if the Congress is in a position to form the government and needed our support, we would extend our support to ti". By all indications, it reaped the benefit of anti-incumbency due to issues such as migration from the hills to the plains and out of Uttarakhand as well, lack of adequate employment opportunities and infrastructure, and persisting problems relating to the 2013 floods.

Singh, a former national level football player, took oath as the CM of Manipur on March 16 along with eight other ministers.

The House will also elect the Speaker on Monday.
