As concrete solutions could not be resolved at this level, all the NPP MLAs headed by Yumnam Joykumar Singh, L Jayantakumar Singh, Letpao Haokip and N Kayisii left for Delhi on a chartered flight with Sarma and Sangma.

Before leaving the Bir Tikendrajit International Airport, Sarma told media persons, "They have certain issues and that is why they left for Delhi to continue the next round of discussion. This discussion will also be attended by my senior colleagues."

He said, "Today, we had a very productive discussion with NPP and with some other friends who are supporting us from the very beginning. I think that step by step we will be able to resolve the issues soon."

"Some differences of opinion keep on coming up. So, we want to finally resolve the issues this time so that there is no further conflict and we can concentrate on Manipur's development," he further said.

Earlier, three BJP MLAs resigned and joined Congress while four NPP MLAs, an independent MLA and a Trinamool Congress (TMC) MLA withdrew support to the N Biren Singh-led government.
