Four more MLAs quit in Manipur

Bowing down to an escalating pressure 3 more MLAs have put in their papers in Manipur on Thursday. Phungzathang Tonsing, Dr Chaltonlien Amo and T Vungzagin resigned after they hardly saw any possibility of withdrawing the three controversial bills that triggered howls of protest in the north eastern state.

Contrary to what was widely believed, home minister Gaikhanngam did not resigned. He would not follow the suit. He confirmed it saying that he would remain firm on his stand.
