The women who gathered at his residence blocked the road leading to the Governor's residence pressurizing him to go back and changed his decision over resigning as Chief Minister.
Earlier, a meeting between Chief Minister Biren Singh and Govorner Anusuiya Uikey was scheduled to take place between 2:00-3:00 PM on June 30, and Singh had tendered his resignation.
Sources at CM's office further reveal that Biren Singh has not been asked by the Central leadership to resign, however, the decision comes after he was hurt by the protest held by women in Imphal holding dead bodies on June 29.
As per sources, Biren Singh was given the option of either putting down his paper or else the Centre would step in and take over. In line with this, Singh had no other choice rather than to tender his resignation.
