The manifesto was released by the party’s national general secretary Narendra Verma who is currently camping in the state along with party state unit president Soram Iboyaima Singh.
On the occasion, Narendra Verma ruled out an absolute majority to form the next government in the state after the election by any party. He said, “Manipur is heading towards another hung Assembly.
In 2017 also there was a hung Assembly,” he said. The NCP leader then confidently said that a “secular government” will be formed in the state after the elections and NCP will be a part of the government. “If NCP is part of the government to be formed by like-minded parties, we will convert these 15-point pledges into work,” he said.
Manipur unit NCP president S Iboyaima said that NCP was committed to the repeal of the AFSPA from the state and will try its best to completely repeal the Act from the state.
