Congress legislative party leader O Ibobi Singh said his party is trying to form a coalition government in Manipur and will soon move a no-confidence motion against the BJP-led government.
Addressing a press conference here late on Wednesday night, Singh said all three BJP MLAs who resigned from the assembly and the party have joined the Congress.
He said he contacted all the four ministers from the National People’s Party (NPP) who have resigned from the BJP-led coalition government to discuss the latest political developments in the state.
Singh, the former chief minister, said his party will move a no-confidence motion against the government of Chief Minister N Biren Singh and approach Speaker Yumnam Khemchand Singh to convene a special session of the assembly at the earliest.

The BJP MLAs who resigned from the assembly and the party are S Subhashchandra Singh, TT Haokip, and Samuel Jendai.
