  • opposition parties formed coalition in Manipur

    Six parties in the opposition form a coalition to fight against Bharatiya Janata Party in Manipur Elections. Moirangthem Nara stated that the six parties that joined hands are NCP, AAP, JD (U), CPI (M), CPI and Manipur National Democratic Front. These parties will form a Left Front.

    The NCP, out of the 6 parties, is the only one that won a seat in the election back in 2012. Liasom Ibomcha, the winning MLA of NCP recently went to Congress. For the last two terms, CPI has been a part of the coalition. However, it has not won any seats so far. Congress felt that it is pointless to sacrifice ministerial positions and asked them to leave the coalition.

    Some of the other local parties that are present in Manipur are Manipur State Congress and Manipur People’s Party. They still have not joined the Left Democratic Front or LDF. Manipur People’s Party did not get any seat in the last elections. Manipur State Congress Party, however, got 5 seats in the last Manipur Elections.

  • Senior Congress Leaders Quit Ahead Of Manipur Polls

    As the Manipur elections draw nearer, the Congress party suffered a setback as three of its senior party members quit.

    The resignations of legislators Nemcha Kipgen and Vungzagin Valte has reduced the party’s strength in the Legislative Assembly to just 45 seats. House Speaker Th Lokeshwor had resigned earlier.

    The recent spate of resignations follows the resignations of key party members in 2016, with sources claiming the legislators will be joining the BJP.

    While the Congress has been ruling Manipur for over 15 years, the BJP is looking to provide stiff competition this election season. The recent call for a Naga blockade has severely crippled the state, and the BJP is looking to capitalise on the discontent against the incumbent leadership.
