All eyes are on the result of Assembly elections in Manipur where the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) looks to hold power, in the interim the Congress remains confident of a win.
Assembly polls in Manipur were conducted in two stages on February 28 and March 5.
In Manipur, BJP is set against the "Manipur Progressive secular Alliance comprising the Congress, Communist Party of India, Communist Party of India (Marxist), Forward Bloc, Revolutionary Socialist Party, and Janata Dal."
Whereas the two major parties are anticipated to be the main contenders, other parties counting the National People’s Party (NPP), Naga People’s Front (NPF), and JD(U) are likely to play significant parts in the occasion of a fusion with no single party securing a majority.
The ruling BJP would either rise as the single largest party or cross the halfway mark, according to the exit polls.
