The month-old BJP-led coalition government in Manipur was rocked with senior Minister L. Jayentakumar - in charge of Health and three other important portfolios - tendering his resignation in protest against "uncalled for interference" by Chief Minister N. Biren Singh. The Chief Minister has rushed to Delhi to firefight the political threat, it is learnt. Jayentakumar submitted his resignation personally to Biren on Friday evening.
