IMPHAL, March 10 - Convener of newly-floated six-party alliance Left and Democratic Front Manipur (LDFM) and CPI (State Council) secretary Dr Moirangthem Nara on Friday predicted a �hung assembly� in Manipur considering the reports of exit polls.
As per the exit poll reports, Congress will be the single largest party (20-25 seats) while BJP will get 15-17, Nara added and claimed that LDFM is expecting around 12 seats. �So, there is a possibility of hung Assembly in the State and the situation will demand a coalition government,� he observed.
Addressing a press conference he told reporters that LDFM may join hands with Congress �if the situation demands� in forming the next government in the border State.
�We may go with Congress if the situation demands. However, we will be discussing the matter once the results are declared,� said Dr Nara. �We will play a crucial role in forming the next government and also in guiding a value-based politics in the State.�
