Ch Bijoy quits
IMPHAL, Jul 19
Chongtham Bijoy, Chief Spokesperson of BJP State Unit, has resigned from his post today as he will be contesting from Uripok AC in the upcoming general election early next year.
In a video release issued by Chongtham Bijoy, he said when he joined BJP in 1994-95, an unwritten rule exist in the party that if any member of the party wants to contest election, he/she has to give up any position they are holding in the party six months before the election. This rule, though not present in BJP's Constitution, has been widely followed and accepted as a convention, he added.
BJP's culture and tradition has made it possible for the party to be in power in the State and at the Centre, he added.
