Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday said that the BJP will come back to power in Manipur in the upcoming Assembly elections.
He claimed that the party has restored peace in the state after it was devastated by terrorism for many years.
The Home Minister said that after the BJP government headed by Chief Minister N. Biren Singh came to power in 2017, the frequent blockade, shut down and other disturbances have been stopped and a new mission for development began.
Elections to the 60-seat Manipur Assembly are likely to be held in February-March next year.
“Law and order situation has improved a lot in Manipur. The development of the state would further intensify after the BJP government came to power in the upcoming Assembly polls for the second time,” Shah said.
Shah said that a Sports University would be set up in Manipur, the new assembly building would be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi soon and a huge number of infrastructure projects were undertaken for the all-round development of the state.
He said that Manipur had a significant contribution in resisting the British in the entire northeast region during the 1857 revolution and also in 1891.
