BJP, JD (U) Tie

IMPHAL, Jan 24: The NDA alliance of BJP and JD (U) would formally announce their decision regarding which party’s candidate they would support in the ensuing by- election to the Konthoujam Assembly Constituency.

The BJP-JD (U) alliance has been already approached by independent candidate Khangenbam Ranjit and Trinamool Congress candidate K Sarat separately to support in the by-election.

According to information received from the BJP Manipur State office, the alliance partners have held several meetings and considered the requests of the two candidates.

A final decision regarding whom they would support would be announced tomorrow after a meeting of the alliance.

The choice of the alliance would be largely determined by their considerations to expand and strengthen their support base with a view to the 16th Lok Sabha elections likely to be held in 2014.

On the other hand, a meeting of the BJP Sagolband Mandal was held yesterday. The meeting reportedly agreed on fielding BJP candidates from all the four wards of Sagolband A/C in the Imphal Municipal Council elections.
