Imphal: Manipur Congress MLA Ginsuanhau Zou on Tuesday joined the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, strengthening the BJP-led coalition government in the state.

"I have resigned from Congress and joined BJP today," Ginsuanhau said during a function at the state BJP office. He was welcomed in the party fold by Chief Minister Nongthombam Biren Singh and Manipur Pradesh BJP president Ksh Bhabananda Singh.

 

14 other party members of the Congress Autonomous District Council from Chandel also followed Zou's suit.
