Imphal: NPP MLAs met yesterday evening to choke its strategy after reports of reshuffle in council minsters leds by N Biren Singh. After report of removal of two its cabinet ministers NPP has resolved to pull out its support from BJP-led coalition if event of any changes to the status quo of its ministers/MLAs.
