Manipur is witnessing a spree of protests and resignations among the BJP's rank and file after the party announced its list of candidates for all 60 seats on Sunday.


New Delhi, 31 January 2022

As per news report of NDTV, Despite asking its ticket-seekers to sign a 'bond' of 'cooperation' even if they were denied a party ticket, the BJP saw a string of resignations nonetheless. Many BJP dissidents are making a beeline for the gates of another BJP ally -- Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's Janata Dal (United). The JD(U) has otherwise had minimal presence in Manipur, though the party has contested elections in the past. Four BJP 'aspirants' joined Janata Dal (United) in Manipur late Sunday after being excluded from the list of BJP candidates for the upcoming Manipur Assembly election, said JD(U) sources.
