Imphal, May 23: The Bharatiya Janata Party Manipur Pradesh has strongly refuted the news report published in local dailies that there is a likelihood of Th Chaoba’s replacement as the president of the party.

She further claimed that the party’s position has only stregthened and improved under the leadership of Th Chaoba.
The BJP since 1980 could not achieve anything remarkable in the state. The party could garner fewer votes in 2009 LS poll, but the party’s vote count has increased this time under Chaoba’s leadership, she said.
O Mahesh president Bharatiya Yuva Morcha of BJP echoing the same line stated that news report could affect the party’s image. He further said that though the party does not have a single MLA in the state, its popularity is growing in the country.
He urged that such news should be published only after getting confirmed reports. He said the matter will be discussed with the president once he returns from Delhi after attending the swearing in ceremony of the Prime Minister.
N Ibemcha president Mahila Morcha said that now BJP is developing rapidly and in such triumphant moment such baseless reports in the newspaper is very unfortunate.
Nabachandra Kishan Morcha president said there was a time when the media had neglected the party. But now everyone is talking about the party after its election performance, he said and added, the rumour can also be taken as a positive attribute in the development of the party.
