After releasing the second list for upcoming Assembly election in Uttar Pradesh, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has announced 31 candidates for Manipur polls, which will be conducted in two phases on 4th and 8the March. Of these 31 candidates, 20 have been fielded for the first phase of elections and rest will contest for the second phase.

The names of the candidates were finalised in a meeting of the party’s Central Election Committee, chaired by party President Amit Shah, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and others. The elections for the 60-member Manipur assembly will be held in two phases, on March 4 and on March 8.

BJP is in direct fight with the Congress in the state but is unlikely to project any chief ministerial candidate. Formation of new districts in the state, about 80 days old economic blockade by the United Naga Council (UNC) on National Highway and territorial integrity of the state in view of the ongoing talks between the Centre and insurgent naga group NSCN (IM) are the issues that will dominate the election.
