Imphal, Dec 13: AICC General Secretary, in-charge of the North East, Prithiviraj Chauhan, today returned to New Delhi and will soon submit a report on the crisis prevailing in the Manipur Congress.

Mr Prithviraj was in the state for past three days to take stock of the party's situation.

Party sources here said that Mr Chauhan had interacted with all the frontal leaders, ministers and MLAs to find out the problem in the party.

The two factions of the Congress legislature party (CLP) had been camping at different areas here.

The rebels were claiming that about 20 out of 31 Congress MLAs were supporting them and were still camping at the residence of MLA L Nandakumar at Lamphel here.

The Congress President Gaikhangam, who had earlier resigned from the Ibobi government is also supporting the dissidents though he has not spoken anything against Chief Minister O Ibobi Singh on record.

Gaikhangam said the problem is an internal and will be resolved soon.

The dissidents have been demanding the ouster of Mr Ibobi for his failure in controlling the law and order situation of the state and for favouring his constituency in the recruitment process.

Mr Chauhan also had talks with Governor S S Sidhu.

Congress sources said Mr Chauhan had asked each of the CLP members individually about their view on the situation and on the leadership issue.

The dissident MLAs were now projecting senior Cabinet minister Th Debendra as an alternative to Mr Ibobi.

Congress leaders feel that the Central leaders may take a decision after the Gujarat elections.
