The BJP, which won 32 out of 60 assembly seats in Manipur, is all set to form the new government in the state. 

“In the interest of the people of Manipur, the JD-U has decided to give support to the BJP in the formation of the government,” newly elected JD-U MLAs stated in a letter. 

The JD-U MLAs added: “…would like to appeal to the BJP to honour the mandate reposed in the party and fulfil the hopes and aspiration of the people.”
