Ibobi Singh unlikely to retain chair?


By Kaveree Bamzai 
NEW DELHI, Feb 22: Congress may well win in Manipur but their Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh, 63, is unlikely to retain his chair. Sonia Gandhi has asked for the bio-data of Y. Erabot Singh, the 73-year-old seniormost minister in Ibobi`s Cabinet. The high command holds Ibobi responsible for ground lost during the threemonth-long blockade in 2011. Ibobi did nothing, even planning a tour of Europe which he later cancelled due to widespread criticism. Erabot became a hero in 2009 when he defied a road blockade and escorted 300 trucks carrying essentials to Imphal without police protection.
