As counting is underway in Manipur, early numbers indicate that the BJP is leading in 29 seats, while the Congress is leading in 10 assembly constituencies.
National People’s Party (NPP) is leading in 10 seats and JDU in 3 seats. Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh is currently leading by 2,598 votes in the Heingang constituency.
Former CM and Congress leader Okram Ibobi Singh leads in Thoubal by 1225 votes. All eyes are on the results of Assembly elections in Manipur where the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) looks to retain power, meanwhile the Congress too remains hopeful of a win. Assembly polls in Manipur were conducted in two phases on February 28 and March 5.
National People’s Party (NPP) and deputy CM Y Joykumar is currently trailing behind BJP candidate Kh Raghumani. In the fourth round, Raghumani secured 6,524 votes and Joykumar secured 5,841 votes.
Conrad Sangma’s National People’s Party (NPP) seems to be emerging as the dark horse this election. Early leads shows NPP leading in 9 seats, including Konthoujam, Moirang, Uripok, Mao, Saikot, Tadubi, Tamei, Yaiskul and Wangoi. This is a huge jump for a small party. While the NPP is an ally of the BJP, the alliance has been uneasy and the two have fought an almost hostile campaign.
